Latinos Can't Lose the Remote Control

I am Latina + I can't remember ever losing the remote = ongthisstereotypeistrue!

I lose my keys all the time, though.

One of the stereotypes should be: Every snarky Mefite can be softened up by simplistic drawings. Because I loved thid.

I was skeptical at first.

Then I got to the Belgians From Crabs drawing and cracked up.

Finally, my difficulties as a Catholic Canadian of Belgian decent are being recognized.

These were great.

Oh, and the skittles one is loosely based on a true story.
posted by Jezztek at 11:12 PM on November 14, 2007


Ha! The maori one is inspired.

Great work, MeFi's own Jezztek!

The part about New Yorkers and their rich vocabulary of profanity is totally fucking true.

Gay People Poop Marshmallows

Marshmallows that smell like roses. True fact.

Everyday, at Exactly Noon, Every Single Polynesian Goes Cross-Eyed

I'm only part Polynesian, so only one eye goes weird. Freaks people the fuck out.

Ah, good times!

Lo, I have added riches to your coffers, Jezztek. I really like your apparel for my sons. And excellent work on the stereotypes, too!

Awesome. Fantastic work, Jezztek, and thanks lalochezia for posting this.

Thanks much, all =)

This is great. I have to try slipping one of these into straight faced discussion. Truly inconsistent stereotypes that change daily would really kick the bottom off from normal ones. Also as people are bored with me evangelizing about QI, so these would sink as just another odd factoid from there.
posted by Free word order! at 12:01 PM on November 15, 2007


Exactly, Fwo!. I'm gonna do the exact same thing. I can't remember who said it, but I read on MeFi yesterday (yes I'm that forgetful) that the ultimate mindfuck is to start messing with someone's head, then stop doing it and not tell them. The same thing would go for the guy always spouting clever factoids silently segueing into I'll-believe-it-because-it's-you utter nonsense.

This should prove to be entertaining at upcoming parties and the like. Thanks again, Jezztek.

The daughter of my Mormon director in high school once told me with a face full of glee that "Girls poop roses!"

This terrified me.

Next time I see her I'm going to ask if she wants some marshmallows.
