This is a joke that Joi Ito told me.
Two middle easterners move to the US. They make a bet on who can become the most American within just one year. They arrange to get back together one year later to talk about how things have progressed.
Twelve months elapse and they meet again. The first Middle Easterner is proud of what he has achieved and says so. “It’s going really well, I feel like a real American. I got an SUV, a sexy wife, joined the country club,bought a house in the suburbs with swimming pool, went on holidays to florida…”
Then the other guy says, “FUCK YOU TOWEL HEAD!!!”
