One of NYC's finest free daily newspapers had this asinine ad recently: 'Is there anything more American than America?'
We could fill an hour with jokes like 'Is there anything more French than…? ~ Yes, if you …etc!'
But wait! There's more…
The ad was for Chrysler. And in fact, it was first seen as one of the famously-expensive Super Bowl commercials, and it starred Bob Dylan, because, one supposes, there's nothing more American than… etc.
Except, of course, (and I know everyone has pointed this out already), Chrysler is now owned by Fiat. In fact, just to conclude with an irritating pun, Chrysler was acquired by Fiat through governmental fiat.
