BOYFRIEND (WITH BENEFITS)
Its funny because it’s true.
To be more precise, it’s funny if you are a citizen of the United States of America. Anyone in France, England, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Ireland, Sweden, Finland Spain – well, just about everyone who isn’t American – won’t get it.
“I don’t get it,” said my good friend Benedicte, who lives in France. It took my about fifteen minutes to explain before she got the joke, but she never laughed.
“So, women in your country without health care must resort to prostitution to see a doctor?” she asked.
“Why do you hate America?” I snapped back.
