    Come on Cistulii, you supposed to be editin all dat sheeit out. Also, Americans do, in some demographically observable fashion, have greater burger expertise than, say, the people of Somolia. That said, I must also presume that the french have never watched a baseball game, as the men who are well acquainted with bun-clad beef tend to be less good at finding things within their glove.

    The odd part, though, is the disclaimer at the bottom. As you say, if it’s a selling point that même les américains veulent le goûter, Americans are clearly being held up as knowing their stuff vis-a-vis fast food. So why is that followed by a warning not to snack between meals, which is perhaps the most American eating habit of all?

    Also, let us take a moment to reflect on the absurdity of the French saying that an American wanting to eat a particular food item is a point in its favor.
