Kaki Metumtam

So, maybe it's just me, but I think it is so darn funny when an Israeli attempts to have a conversation with an American. Israelis have this stereotype about Americans, that they can out-smart, out-bargain, out-talk, out-wit, out-stare, out-do and over-do, under-do, and in-do anything an American can. It's a little petty and has a lot to do with the competitiveness that comes with an over populated state of ambitious people. It's like they come to America and they find the Utopia of opportunities--shoppers, club-goers, persuadable people, etc. Of course, not all Israelis are like that, but here’s a funny example of this in action. This is an Israeli interviewing and American actor about a film [ani kaki metumtam means 'I am a dumb shit']:
