About

One-Up America is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photograph of a bald eagle in front of a United States flag with captions typically depicting American patriotism or hubris.

Origin

On August 6th, 2012, Redditor submitted an image macro titled “One-Up America” to the /r/AdviceAnimals[4] subreddit, featuring a bald eagle picture with the caption “Sees Britain is hosting Olympics / Lands on Mars” (shown below) in reference to the Curiousity Mars rover landing.



Spread

On August 9th, 2012, the Internet news blog UpRoxx[2] published an article about the image macro series. On the following day, the viral content site BuzzFeed[3] highlighted several notable examples from the series. On December 18th, Redditor annoyedturtle submitted an image macro to the /r/Murica[5] subreddit, which joked about anti-American stereotypes juxtaposed with United States’ achievements (shown below, left). Prior to being archived, the post accumulated upwards of 1,600 up votes and 60 comments. On March 7th, 2013, Redditor Felacio submitted an image macro to the /r/AdviceAnimals[6] subreddit, pointing out the United States’ history of military operations (shown below, right). Within three months, the post garnered more than 740 up votes and 40 comments.

In no way am I defending this page. By all means, have at it. But if you’re going to put the ONE thing Don can find that has the tiniest hint of spread, then I at least request you also bring the hammer down on the ones of even lower caliber.
