*Hey, I’m good, but I can’t make this stuff up.

And the State Department that had the audacity to tweet a message to potential travelers has back-tracked — post haste — after upsetting many in the viral universe.

In short, the U.S. Department of the State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs warned folks that if you are considered ugly in the U.S. and find yourself being treated like you are “pretty” in another country. You are being duped. Somebody is probably trying to get something from you.

That’s the breakdown. They have since taken it down, but hoped it served as a warning just in time for those students out on Spring Break.

How heartless. How cruel. And to come from the GOVERNMENT of all places!!!

And how much you want to bet it was a pot calling the kettle black situation; with potmark-faced Paul or buck-tooth Betty sitting in the administrative offices collecting a check doing the tweeting?

And what is this “10” based on?

See the original tweet at EURThisNthat and the comments on it that follow.
