    first

    • Scallywagg

      Why?? Why????? WHY??????Stop doing this dumb shit people!

      • scalywog

        why does saying first annoy people so much ?

        • DaddyD

          Because it is a waste of our time to have to scroll past it, and because it uses up space on the first page that could be better used by someone with a brain.

  • mikeofla

    #12 is NOT in the US. That is a Toyota Hilux, and they are very common in Asia and Africa. Commonly used by guerrilla militias… hence why this has a machine gun in the back.

    • Chris Scharff

      Looks like I repeated myself.

    • Prishtina

      This looks like Libya

    • Some Bloke

      Ah, the Toyota Hilux – the troop carrier of the 3rd world.

    • Tyler

      That's actually at a petrol station in Afghanistan, the pashto writing on the wall in the blue banner

    • https://www.facebook.com/schizoronialfredo Nathaniel Patrick-Bateman Fancypants

      I still want one. I'll feel much safer commuting from Chicago in the evening.

    • Brad

      they have the Hilux in South America too, nicest truck you can get down there, the BMW or Mercedes of trucks…

    • charlie

      Also used in Mexico alot

    • Chyorni

      Also, note the DShK

  • Jak

    Oh, I saw this one coming after the civil war post. Make 'em laugh Chive, make 'em laugh

  • Nazz1962

    #22 Fuck yeah!

    #11 meanwhile at a Rebecca Black concert…

    #17 is just racist and not funny.

    • devin

      is just racist AND funny.

    • Admiral Ackbar

      Its a little funny, but you're right, it would have been much funnier had they worked the gender in somehow. Asian Female Driver stereotype and all that.

      Seriously though, lighten up a little. No one was hurt in the making of this meme.

      • nemesis

        Hey, it's ok. A comment is just an opinion. My opinion is that kind of funny just perpetuates derogatory opinions of other races and, in the hands of those less enlightened than you or I, that kind of prejudice can become hurtful.

        • Admiral Ackbar

          Agreed and apologies, but I ROR'd. Sorry, couldn't resist.

        • dub

          Don't be a dumbass. There's a difference between being racist and noticing the differences between racist.

          My skin is light brown. A black persons' skin is dark brown. Yours might be white. Asian people have thinner eye slits than whites and blacks. That's not being racist, it's noticing racial differences.

          And the picture was imaginative… As a round-eye, I often find myself wondering if this is how they actually see… Who is to say they don't? An Asian person couldn't tell you because they don't know how a round eye sees.

          Just lighten up. Not everything is intended to carry hate, and if that's the way you see them, then maybe the problem is your perception, and the guilt that you personally hold for it.

          • dub

            Damn it!.

            Races*

            • asianinvasion

              hey i'm asian, and i think its funny as fuck. cuz well its kinda true hahaha

          • FYI

            Actually there is a surgery to remove the epicanthic eye fold (the lower eye lid shape) on Asians. Jackie Chan famously had it done, as well as many other prominent Asian media stars who want to be more accepted by western audiences.

            So there are people who could tell you if there is a difference.

            I doubt very much that the eye fold does much to your vision. I've yet to read any studies or first hand accounts, mind you. But it seems like it is hardly more than a light squint of a difference.

            • fibonacci5150

              who want to be more accepted by western drivers*

          • That1guy

            Dude pick up a book. The center of your iris, the pupil, is round for all human beings. The differences of eyelid shape, of all races, are cosmetic, not functional. Dumb-ass.

    • asian

      i doubt any asian is really offended by this. we know its true.

      • BeefFarmer

        Of course not. Both pictures look the same to them.

    • micheal scott

      its a lot funny. There is whole lot more racist shit out there you can be worried about. take a picture of garbage man picking up some white guy in front of his house. Put a good caption, ya its racist but funny as hell too. If asians were better drivers it wouldnt be funny.

      • nemesis

        I'm not familiar with the Asians are bad driver's gag. I think that must be a stereotype particular to the US only.

    • Gpa Bob

      I am asian and if find this funny and not racist. please explain to me what isnt funny. this is exactly how I see the world

    • equalizermax

      Actually, Asian Drivers are better drivers than us here in merica… If you've only been in countries like Vietnam, Philippines, Indonesia, etc. Roads are horrible, pedestrian crossing everywhere and drivers/passenger don't wear seat belts or no seat belts at all…

    • jay22

      Political correctness just pisses me off. Is any asian out there REALLY offended? …. I didnt think so. Oh , and if you are … welcome to US. It's called first amendment. Racist speech, even hateful, must be tolerated in a free society.

    • Jimmy

      someone needs to lighten up..if you can't take a joke then, fuck you.

    • Jeff

      Personal experience. My sister is adopted from China Love her to death, but she is one of the absolute worst drivers on the planet.

    • tom

      im asian and its not offensive just not lol funny

      • dub

        ror*

    • A box

      We're all missing the point here it's racist because it says "Normal People" and "Asian People" implying that Asians are not normal people.

      • Danny

        This.

      • Admiral Ackbar

        Okay, I missed that the first time. Good point.

      • That Guy

        by normal, they are saying the majority. the majority of the world lack eyes that have a narrow opening. when Asians break the majority threshold then they will be normal. may not be long though.

        • asian*invasion

          we already have, the average person in the world is a 22 year old Chinese male. we are the majority, most people just haven't noticed yet. lol

          • That Guy

            oh fuck… then this post is a racist post. i demand a retraction, an apology and a tribute to Asians everywhere. oh rulers of the world i beg your deepest forgiveness.

            • McBeastie

              You could just admit that you were wrong without being a sarcastic asshole.

              • That Guy

                fuck it… i thought this was the funniest post to date. and if you don't want sarcasm you are on the wrong site.

          • Ryno

            The most common person in the world is a 28 year old Han Chinese man. There are 9 million of them in the world. I read the article.

            • dub

              I wonder what his name is. He seems like he gets around.

    • Screwdriver

      It's so funny because it is true.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Vince-Weaver/100002059474696 Vince Weaver

      Now, showing a view out the sunroof, and saying, "Yao Ming Driving" would be funny….
      xD

    • Special_K

      I am Asian. I don't find this offensive. It's just the way we are. Actually my father got rejected by Air Force because of this when he was a teenager. The diagnose said "limited field of view" LOL.

      But, first, not all Asians are like this and, people with small eyes got very little vision problem.

    • Red

      Go away loser. If we can't have fun and laugh at ourselves then we die.

      Go to some PC web site bawl baby punk ass shit.

      • Frank

        Asian Jokes or GTFO. I'm Pilipino and I lib on the pipth ploor. Why these feople get so fissed opp??

        • asian*invasion

          i think you have your p's and f's mixed up good sir.

          • Rich Muhlach

            i tink he did dat on furfose…

            I'm Filpino too, and I literally laughed out when I saw it…

            And no, your vision does not get impaired whether you have *asian* eyes or not. Trust me, I'm asian. LOL!

    • Brother Maynard

      I'm not Asian but I play one on TV, this made me chuckle.

      • dub

        #WINNER!

    • nomnomnomnom

      I laughed for about a minute…. lighten up please.

    • its_forge

      I am somewhat of a fan of jokes at the expense of others, and I find this just fricking dumb.

    • Daniel Lovejoy

      I agree. Racist and insensitive. I'm married to an asian, my children look asian. Would the person who created this "joke" like to come over and visit me for a few minutes?

      • http://jaimepalma.com jaime

        it's a joke people, chill. chive out!

    • Pezski

      What makes it racist is the phrase "normal person" as averse to "asian person"; if it said "caucasian" that would be less racist.

  • HappyCamper

    #9 is awesome

  • aosux

    #3 Finally someone gets it

    • dave32891

      i could not agree more #3

  • DCMOFO

    #17
    I lol'd

    • Joe

      ROR Raff out roud

      • McBeastie

        Yeah, never heard that one before.

    • Hock

      I am Asian and I really find this funny!

  • ostrichman1985

    #14 correction, hipster birthday cake.

    • Skaught

      My thoughts exactly!

    • GK-4

      Is it wrong that i thought
      "…hey, that's actually a great idea?" :/

    • Mikki

      no, deff redneck. PBR is not a hipster drink, its what alcoholic hicks like myself drink because its cheap and we go through 5 cases a week.

  • Wolfram

    #25 would probably give me nightmares if I had to sit there…

    • Steeb

      i think they got crabs…

    • Clay

      Crab People… Crab People….

  • kris

    #20 Joe Dirt looks like he's on Meth

  • Duke Nukem

    #22 Im here to kick ass and chew bubble gum and im all out of gum!……..now show me them tittays!

    • Grifo

      I can't believe I know that movie quote: They Live!

    • theederv

      Shake it Baby!

  • Ilaughatyou

    #17 is hilarious.

    • Leo

      It's even funnier when you realize that Leo never, ever insults asians specifically. He equally has posts that are about how them negroes is so funny and them mexicaans are so dirty!

      Even in his post about 'merica, Leo just can't resist getting in a dig at the Asians because, apparently, an Asian girl once laughed at his penis size

  • USM

    #1 this is not US, its Idaho. now get me some freedom fries bitch!

    • Summer

      … lol… and where is Idaho… oh look… in the US!

      • Duh

        *whispers to Summer* "I think he was joking…"

    • Flicka

      Judging by his plate, he's a fan of Croatian handgun design.

      • EMB

        Judging by his bumper stickers…. hes a fucking moron

        • dub

          and he likes getting attitude from everyone on the road.

          It must be really annoying constantly getting feedback for all of the opinions you wear on your sleeves.

          • Dan

            In Idaho, he's probably getting lots of thumbs up!

    • PixarFTW

      I was unfortunate enough to live in Idaho for many years, and people ask me why I moved…

      It's not that I don't like Toy Story, I just like The Incredibles more.

    • Monosodico

      and he drives a japanese truck

      • Frank

        The guy doesn't like Obama. Doesn't make him a white supremacist. Your comment is kind of like the pot calling the kettle black.

  • Jfrost

    #9 After a hard day raking up decomposed leaves and other shit, I love to kick back, throw some weiners on that rake, and have me a little pig'pickin

  • nojoke420

    I'll bet you $1,000 that this guy is on Social Security #1

    • Phil

      The best part is it's a nissan, couldn't even be bothered to buy american

    • Walker

      hahahaha

    • Flicka

      And his handgun (XD-45) is a Croatian-designed weapon, sold under license.

  • Irelevant

    aw fuck it

  • Cta

    #3 couldn't agree more!

  • WinningChiver

    #21 Spinnin in his grave…

    • dub

      lol. That would be a great inscription.

  • gofistyourself

    'merica, FUCK YEAH …… COMMIN TO SAVE THE MUTHERFUKIN DAY YEAH !!!!!!!!

  • http://thechive.com/ mattythegooch

    #24 – why don't you sell that shirt in theChivery?? I suppose I could run out to Spencers Gifts or Hot Topics or some other shit dump and find one…

    • Poontangler

      Somebody LOVES to eat oranges!

  • Chris Scharff

    #12 is a Toyota Hilux, which is the foreign version of the Tacoma. Sorry guys, but that's obviously not in 'Merica

    • sceneitb4

      Note the Arabic writing on the small sign on the wall too…

  • KeyserSoze

    #1

    LOL, on a Nissan…

    • buick

      Which is made in America by non union labor… Nissan has three production plants in the United States – in Smyrna and Decherd, Tennessee, and Canton, Mississippi.

      • tom

        yea but that guy's probably not smart enough to know that

        • dub

          Maybe he's super smart. He obviously likes reading a lot.

          • vegeta!

            I think when it comes to books, he probably burns more of them than he reads

            • Frank

              I think when people like you know they are wrong, they would die before admitting it.

      • IronEagle119

        Correct, underpaid non-union workers. And the bottom line most of the profits from buying foreign cars produced in the US still goes to other countries not the American economy! Keep buying foreign products, keep killing 'Merica!

        • CuntSwapper

          and keep shipping our jobs out there! Keep killin' 'Merican jobs!

  • Doodle

    holy shit america…sorry, 'Merica…is fucked up…

    • McBeastie

      and proud of it. Show me a country that isn't fucked up.
