Fair enough; but that's not the problem. I don't mind Americans
posting jokes here (provided that they're not of the "comprehensible
only to Americans" kind; Americans already have a rec.humor for
the "local interest only" style of posting). The issues that are
causing all the flak are:
1. There are some individuals (e.g. that dickhead with the American
flag in his signature) who are being so obnoxious that they're
giving a bad name to all Americans.
2. There are far too many people (not all of whom are American)
who use this group for discussion rather than for jokes.
IF THERE'S NOT A JOKE IN YOUR POSTING, IT DOESN'T BELONG HERE.
A man was taking a load of manure home in a horse cart, when he
passed the local insane asylum. An inmate (working near the fence),
called out to the man.
Where are you going with that manure?
The man responded "Home, to put it on my strawberries".
The inmate replied "Gee, you should live here, we get cream on ours".
