Why are Americans so Awesome? Because we're audaciously stupid...and incompetant.
Reminds me of a quote I found:
"Anonymous 05/18/10(Tue)19:25 No.6081953
Britfag here, I've been in America for the past three years. The world needs heroes more and more at the moment. The heroes that have meant the most to me over the last 3 and a half years have been you, the American people, you are all heroes. In fact, give yourself a round of applause now.
I'll tell you why you're all heroes, because the American people are fucking idiots. I mean that as the highest form of compliment a human being could possibly issue. The world needs idiots. Idiots get things done, they don't waste time thinking and planning things. Do you honestly think any other country could have put a man on the moon? Of course not. That is a fucking stupid thing to do, only America could pull that off. Only America would send his friend up there a few years later with a set of golf clubs so he could whack a few balls around, it makes complete sense if you don't really think about it. This last year you bombed the moon, you did it, you bombed the moon. You wanted to see if there was water so you BOMBED the moon. The moon got bombed and you did it, not because it was easy but because it was bloody hard. And not only did you bomb the moon, you did it at the time of the greatest financial melt-down of our lifetimes. Like you're little treat to the rest of the world: 'put your money away world, that was on uncle sam.' The world should be lining up to thank you people.
Tl;dr: god bless america."
