What are some stereotypes going around the world about folks domestically and internationally? I know in parts of the States, people view Englanders and high-class, caviar-eating, snooty folks who say "Cheerio" and don't brush their teeth. Some folks view Canadians as people who hunt, play hockey, say "eh" at the end of every sentence and build igloos in the harsh Canadian winters that last from August to June. There are plenty of southern stereotypes, most of which are grounded in truth. Southerners in general really do like to hunt, fish, work on cars, go to church on Sunday where we'd be forgiven for all the sins we've done over the week, drink Natural Light beer and Jack Daniels on the front porch from lunchtime until about ten, barbeque, drive our pickups with all six young'uns the back and giant-ass tires, fly our Confederate flags, go to Wal*Mart to do all our shopping, eat taters, decorate our trailers with posters of women in bikinis next to cars, shoot stuff in the back yard, eat grits, watch football (the Amerikin kahnd, not that pussy soccer sheeut) in our buddy's garage, train our three or four dogs we love more than the rest of our family, wear hunting camo when we're not hunting and smoke Marlboro Reds.

Yeah, I love the south.

......that's just not nice. But i would hope that they did. or the countrty would smell of B.O.

ANYWAY

Some stereotypes could be correct like:

Californians really CAN'T drive! I mean JESUS CHRIST that was awful! ><

/spam

But seriously, the Canadian thing isn't always true, but there are some people who do live the stereotypes...which just fuels more...stereotypicalness....

There is no harsh h in french, as a language it flows in a .....fluid like way which is why its bastard hard to understand regional dialects tongue.gif they do bathe and the english to brush their teeth...but we are very snooty, eat caviar lots and have afternoon tea with the vicar on a regular basis with little sandwiches, we also say things like cheerio, pip pip, and and old boy lots (e.g. pip pip, cheerio old boy)

and on this american "football" subject (how is it football if you can use your hands?) its just some pussy form of rugby with pads because they're all little nancy boys tongue.gif

My point exactly...I haven't been really keeping up with the season thus far, so i'm wondering how Arsenal and Manchester United are doing....

...and no SPS--you, at the very least are not snooty.

I hate american football, its stupid and boring.

I don't like the culture of the south, so I try to stay away from it.

Here are some sterotypes about the people in Kentucky (for the majority of the population they are false):
Missing teeth
no shoes
Everyone owns a horse
// a gun
Everyone lives in a trailer park
// lives on a mountian or a hill
Most people seem to think incest is rampant.
Everyone likes basketball

I can't think of anymore.

What is true:
The education system isn't very great.
The people in the eastern part of the state are very nice people.
The eastern part of the state is/was a different culture than the rest of the U. S. and was destroyed with the help of the media.

Ugh...don't get me started on education. Everyone say it with me now: KERA sucks. Everyone: "KERA sucks" Very good!

As an Eastern Kentuckian, I thank you. happy.gif

And no, it isn't totally destroyed...take it from someone who volunteered with the Morehead Chamber of Commerce...we're trying to keep a hold of our roots. Well, the good roots at least. We're still a really poor area of the state though, but that has been improving quite a bit. We're on the up and up. happy.gif

Hehe...you're from the western part aren't you? I can't remember...

That's not what we do? tongue.gif

Also, Canadians are supposed to be really, really, really, really polite. And we all drive dogsleds. I didn't know the hunting thing was a Canadian stereotype.

And not just hockey... CURLING! The sport of fat kings!

Good, I'm glad its not completely destroyed.

I am from the midwestern part of the state, but my grandparents and a few of my aunts and uncles were born in Whitley Co. (southeastern Ky). So, I do have some connection...smile.gif

Ah, my British ancestry has provided me with a wealth of cultural and national stereotypes:

Germans:
They fall into one of three categories: Humourless, sullen and efficient industrialists; Nazis; and beer-swilling, sausage-eating, lederhosen-wearing cheerful Bavarians.

The French:
Snail-eating, frog-leg-munching, cheese-eating, hairy-armpitted, sexy, corrupt, funny-accented, beret-wearing, pretentious, arrogant surrender-monkeys.

The Dutch:
They all wear leather, do drugs, speak with a really silly accent (a recent advert for Grolsch used the slogan "Shhhtop! Thish beer ish not ready yet!"), f--k around with members of the same sex, live in windmills and talk straight to the annoyance of everyone.

Belgians:
Boring. Really, really boring. And possibly smelly.

Italians:
They all ride mopeds and have great sex. And they say "ciao" a lot. And they can't hold a government together for love or money.

Swedes:
Invariably blonde. Apparently there are lots of lesbian twins out there. That might just be a figment of the British porn industry's imagination, though.

Ethiopians:
Hungry and emaciated. Thank Christian Aid for that one.

Russians:
Vodka-swilling, corrupt Communists. Ah, the legacy of the Cold War never dies.

Australians:
They surf, they say "G'day, mate" all the time and they drink only beer. Even their kids. No exceptions. Probably by law.

The Japanese:
They speak with a funny accent, they all live in tiny apartments, and they're all very weird. Japanese TV imports prove this to be entirely true.

Mericans:
Oh, there're just too many to go through in one post. Just one then: you're all gun-crazy.

The Irish:
Irish people are constantly drunk, usually stupid and have the funniest accent ever. To be sure, to be sure, to be sure.

The Welsh:
Sheep-shaggers the lot of them.

Scots:
None of them wear pants, but they still insist on wearing kilts on windy moors. Glaswegians have impenetrable accents.


That's all the bigotry I can think of for now!

Red heads... (ohh, this will end in tears)

I am actually, a natural redhead. And there is this thing that we are fiery. And I'm not.

Okay, I have a short temper and now and again certain things will make me EXPLODE for no apparent reason. I mean really go bug shit. But I'm not sure that it counts as a stereotype...

Nah - I'm talking bull crap - it's so true. I'm a psycho... I love it...

What???

By blood I am a quarter-German, half-English, and three-eighths Irish. The extra eighth accounts for my body mass. I have an Irish given name, an English surname, and a German pseudonym. So a considerable amount of this applies to me.

That's quite a list, Polo. Wow. I'll have to ask my granddad for more (he's from Cupar).

As for the black thing, yes the stereotype is that they love fried chicken and watermelon and Colt 45 (possibly in the same meal). According to the stereotype, they will slit your throat for a quarter or not work and rely on food stamps. And of course, all of us southerners hate black folks.

Oh, and southerners really are gun-crazy and hate 'em kwurs. I hate all 'em kwurs. Oh, and we all watch NASCAR and say "I tell you whut" at the end of each paragraph.

EDIT: Oh, and I can't stress enough our love for the Confederate flag. I have one flying in my parent's front yard, one in my winder, one in my pickup, one on my wall and one under my bed just in case.

Here's the stereotypes I have

Polaks(it is that, not Poles)--Idiots, stupid, screen door submarines

Jews--Hook nosed money hoarders

Armenians--Women are harier than the men

Americans--Like the Polaks, minus the submarines

Puerto Rican, Mexican, Cuban, and South American 20-30 year old women--"Oh no you di'inn't"

Philipinos--Dog eaters

I personally see little problems with humor like this, as long as it remains humor. In closed circles, jokes are fine. Bashing is not.
