Dear Americans In Australia they never put shrimps on a barbie, shimp to us and the rest of the world are tiny little prawns, only you dumb Americans call them shrimp because you like being different from everyone else. We call them prawns and no one says gi'day mate either.

On another note what do you yanks call (what we refer to as) shrimp seing as you already gave that name away to another crustation?

Shrimp's are classified in the "infraorder Caridea". And Prawns are classified in "Dendrobranchiata"

Therefor, they are DIFFERENT. So a shrimp is a shrimp and a prawn is a prawn.

yes i know i'm saying everyone bar the US calls the big ones prawns and the little ones shrimps. but you Americans being only concerned about yourselves make up sterotypes about other countries and can't even get the facts straight about what we call our seafood

If we are concerned about ourselves then why dont you send aid to third world countries? Also bitch please the sterotypes had already been there. and when was the last time some other country said anything good about us.

im going to assume you make america is fat jokes when australia actualy has more fat people. you also likely portray most americans as rednecks
User avatar #115 to #103 - dazzayafool (07/23/2012) [-]
Wrong.. you said Australia has more fat people, yet we have a bit under 23 million, and USA has nearly 312 million, roughly 45% of adults are overweight in both countries so.. America has more fat people, we may have a higher percentage, but not more, and i don't think all Americans are Rednecks, ignorant maybe, but ignorance is bliss, right?
