It’s true that Americans have a bit of a reputation, globally. We’re not always the quietest or the most polite travelers. Our culture is unique, and we take a lot of pride in being from the US of A. This gives our friends overseas an interesting impression of us – and sometimes they pick up information that isn’t quite right.

Here are 17 tweets that miss the mark when it comes to Americans:

1. This is a horrifying thought

2. Where’s my basket?

3. Twice per day, actually

4. Only sometimes

5. This is more of a regional thing

6. That would be magical, but no

7. I don’t think it’s true, but it makes sense

8. Someone lied to you

9. This one’s actually true, and it pains my introverted heart

10. Only if they’re deep fried

11. Lawn dwarves is a terrible name

12. I believe this is true, and I regret not taking this approach in the past

13. Maybe I was asleep in science class, but I don’t think so

14. I vote cry

15. Clap? Occasionally. Stand up? Nah.

16. I’m so glad this isn’t true

17. Nope, wrong country

If you need me, I’ll be listening to “God Bless America” on repeat.
