That is actually kind of the point, Noah Webster purposely spelled many words more to how they sound like fetus, instead of foetus, color instead of colour etc. He said he wanted "to rescue "our native tongue" from "the clamour of pedantry" that surrounded English grammar and pronunciation." He set about to actually create a more distinct language from the traditional English to give Americans a sense of unity through a unique language, adding words like skunk and squash. So yeah, this is true in a lot of ways, and is not necessarily just poking fun at Americans.

Well, American English is actually simplified... ex: England spells colour, America spells Color.

We use less pointless vowels.

As long as you can be understood, it doesn't matter.

They're just upset because they sound like North American English when they sing.

You got me there. Against Oxbridge we only have Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Columbia, MIT, Caltech, and Julliard. The American intellect is just so outmatched.

Correct, English in America is simplified. I don't see why this is a big deal.

Well... what have we been speaking this whole time then?

This is a terrible misconception that I really hate. English exists as a spectrum, a language is developed by all its speakers, not just the ones that "developed it

American English isn't wrong or simplified, it's just different.

Don't see what's so insulting about having a more simplified language, it's not like American English is composed of freedom grunts, broken caveman sentences, and drooling. It just means it's slightly easier to say, spell, and learn with the same intention. Simplicity ≠ stupidity.

I'm American and I gotta say...this is so stupid. Both for Americans who may actually get insulted over this, and Brits thinking this is something to hold over us. Our version of English is simplified. It isn't an insult or anything, it is a matter of concept. Us using the spelling 'color' over 'colour' simplifies the word, but it is still the same word.
