In America, mostly members of the EU are considered to be "european". So when someone thinks of Europe, Germany, France, Italy come to mind, not Russia, Ukraine etc.
Also Americans think that being "european" means being a pussy.
completely wrong! Eastern Europeans are some of the toughest people on Earth (survived Communism, fought ww2 for the West etc)
-I'm European and i don't give a f*** who Bush is
Also can be used to describe someone from the continent of Europe a that has a shity, pathetic, and out dated military, an exception can be made for Germany of course.
European2: "Oh poppy cock Elizabeth, its only the French getting steam rolled"
Bob: "Look at all those gays"
Frank:"No Bob, those are Europeans"
US Army Guy: "Those Europeans can't shoot for shit"
US Army Guy2: "Yeah, there a bunch of jackasses"
"I think Euopeans should get there heads out of their asses"
European: You stupid fat american! I am extreamly jealous because when i go back to Europe i will be forced to have sex with guys and eat shit and not be able to go to disney world!
American: WOW i hate all Europeans
