The most gloriously American pictures on the internet

What makes America unique? We know that it is the land of freedom, and that Americans prize that title above all else, but there are so many other things that make this great nation special.

Sure, there’s a lot of natural beauty to love, but when we sit down to think about what the USA is known for, we can come up with a whole list of other great things. First of all, there’s democracy, which has been a stable force since the United States Constitution was ratified in 1788. Then there’s the food, the culture, the holidays, and the people – all really top notch.

It can be tough to capture the glory of the United States of America in a photograph, but there are some people who managed to do it, and do it well. We’ve gathered together some of the pictures that we think best show the essence of the best country in the world as we know it, so grab your plate of bacon and your American flag, and enjoy!

In America, we like things deep fried, there’s no doubt about that. There are fried twinkies, fried oreos, fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches… you name it, you can find it swimming in oil.

This food stand, which tells it like it is with the name Heart Attack Cafe, takes it a step further, even offering deep fried butter. Each of the signature dishes here is deep fried and smothered in sugar and butter. They also have frightening names, such as The Triple Bypass and The Heart Stopper.
