"Tried to find my hat first. I never did find my cigarettes."

Video of a man sitting in a diner when a car plows through the wall, obliterates the booth, pins the man against the counter, and doesn't hurt him at all.

He looked pretty calm, but don't you just know he really wanted a cigarette just a few minutes later?

So it's not a drive-in?

I quickly Googled for other links for this story and confirmed my suspicions.

The first links are all foreign, starting with the BBC one (there are Australian, etc.).

Anything to make Americans look fat, eating burgers in greasy diners, not caring if a car ploughs into them if they can walk away with their ciggies intact.

It's a way of unintentionally-intentionally making Americans look bad.

American news coverage is not immune. They love showing Korean and Taiwanese parliamentary members duking it out on the floor of their congresses.

But the BBC never fail to broadcast anything which is remotely embarrassing about normal Americans.

Cheers,

We Americans need to have a "Teley" tax so that we too may have a news service as good as the BBC.

Oh, wait we do. We have at least four: ABC, CBS, CNN, and NBC with all its related sub-channels.

That only works if it embarrasses us.

My first thought was how much I love good old boys. Within a second, he was laughing and looking for his hat. God bless him.
