21 Reasons To Be Thankful To The USA On Thanksgiving
America, you're aaaaaalright...
In a year where they've taken a lot of flak from the rest of the world, it's easy to forget how much the good ol' U.S. of A have done for the world.
As tomorrow is Thanksgiving across the pond, we thought we'd remind everyone just how much we owe to our American cousins.
1. Fast Food
The burgers, the chips, the nuggets, the everything.
2. Comic Book Heroes
Freedom fighting and baddy bashing since the 1800s.
3. Air Travel
Bless you, Wright Brothers.
4. Chicken Wings
So gloriously messy.
5. The Simpsons
The REAL first family.
6. Country Music
A world without Dolly Parton or Garth Brooks? No, thanks.
7. Superbowl Sundays
A now annual excuse to take a cold February Monday off work. Not that we know anything about American Football.
9. Saved By The Bell
90s mornings would never have been the same without the zany antics of Zack Morris and the gang.
10. Barack Obama
We'll miss ya Bar :-(
These bad boys will never not be in fashion.
12. Massive Portions
And free refills on drinks... Mmmm.
Gooooooo..... sports team!
14. Sliced Bread
The greatest thing since... well, non-sliced bread.
Could not narrow this one down of course but we all know the best films come from the States.
16. New York
The views, the shops, the nightlife. NYC is the place to be.
From the early classics to the 3D Pixar flicks and the prettiest princesses to the catchiest musical numbers. We salute you, Walt.
Forever warping our perception of lifeguards.
19. Hip Hop
Let's face it, we've all gone through the awkward 'I WILL be a successful rapper' phase.
20. Professional Wrestling
Before the UFC, there were the primary school put downs inspired by our favourite WWF superstars. 'IF YA SMELLLLLL!!!'
21. Kermit & Ms. Piggy
Forget Posh & Becks or Wills & Kate, these two were the original love story.
God bless you, America and Happy Thanksgiving.
