Hot Dogs, Baseball, and Apple Pie

You Are 59% American
Most times you are proud to be an American.
Though sometimes the good ole US of A makes you cringe
Still, you know there's no place better suited to be your home.
You love your freedom and no one's going to take it away from you!

The funny thing is that the fact that I vote in every election makes me less American then if I didn't vote at all and by the way I can't stand hot dogs.

After finding the above quiz, I had to go looking for some more blatantly Americentric quizzes in celebration of Independence Day on the 4th of July. I found this one appealing. Click the image above and it will take you to an American Culture Quiz created by Germans.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get it to score through Firefox, although it worked fine through Internet Explorer. In case it doesn't work for you the answers are here and you can self-score. I only scored 16 out of 20 myself. I'll be incredible embarrassed if somebody from overseas scores better.

This is a shot I took out my car window not that long ago. The sight of my nation's flag blowing in the breeze on a clear and sunny day makes it hard not to feel patriotic, of course it would still look much better with a New York flag next to it, but the Texas flag is growing on me. Have a wonderful Fouth of July!

I'm 48% American. I think it's because I liked wine better than beer, and Brie better than American cheese.

Anyway, Happy 4th!

I must confess that when I first took the test I came up at 49%, but I was trying to create a patriotic feel. So I went back in and answered things as high scoring as I could and still be truthful.
They actually considered wine to be more American then dark beer.

Hello, Michele sent me.

I (a Brit) will take this.

Oooh, I only got 46% American, but the description of my results was totally off- I certainly do not have a take it leave it feel about this country! It must have been the brie that threw off my results. :)

Happy 4th!

I can't believe only 5% of Americans have a passport! Incredible!

LOL, well I did the first quiz and it said I'm 13% American, and belong in Cairo or Paris. I suppose that's about right - we're much closer to Cairo than we are to the USA!

I did the other one (which didn't score in Firefox for me either - so annoying when people don't make their quizzes compatible with all browsers) and got 10 out of 20. A lot of my answers were guesses, though.
