11 hilariously chilling takedowns of the American who thinks Europe doesn’t have ice cubes
American journalist Matthew Yglesias tried to spell out how badly the US has dealt with the pandemic by explaining why being better than Europe isn’t much of a defence.
He’s right that America has nothing to boast about, but ‘ice cubes‘?
Anyway …Twitter had thoughts.
We have ice cubes. We keep them with our health care systems that don’t cause us bankruptcy whenever we stub a fucking toe.

I'm not falling for this. Ice cubes are mythical and don't actually exist, like haggis https://t.co/Wqb4kgNIx0

Ian is right. Every time I see something which I think was an ice cube when I'm out and about, I put it in my bag to examine it later at home. But when I look, there's nothing there. https://t.co/1UZKJJvJHC

Gary Bainbridge had this perfect coup de grâce.
I'm not going to be lectured on ice cubes by somebody who's never heard of an electric kettle.
