Happy Etc.

Is There Anything More Mongolian Than

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.
