i think my favorite type of non-americans-being-surprised-by-american-life is when you guys are like “wait… i know it’s like this in all the american movies but i thought they were just fucking with us!”
My Brazilian friend Alvaro was surprised by Girl Scout Cookie season. “You mean you really have little girls selling boxes of cookies?? I thought that was just in the movies!” Hell yeah we do. Thin Mints changed his life.
