A lot of people thinks that all the italians are mafia related, pizza-eaters, hand gestures, "mamma mia" and others...

What about you??

Canadians are all I know are hockey loving, poutine eating and multi-cultured country. No wonder foreigners comes to Canada, I love when they come to home country.

Well, I could say some things about my state and region for stereotypes: We all talk like surfer dudes and valley girls in California, Los Angeles is the only city in California (especially when they say Disneyland is in LA. It's not :p) I don't call Orange County, The OC, unless I'm lazy. I've never even seen that show. :doh: Hollywood is beautiful looking. No.

Actually looked up stereotypes for Orange County and got: Orange County - Megachurches. Republicanoids. Plastic lawns.

Well, that's true except for the plastic lawns thing.

I forgot to say that we don't eat spaghetti and meatballs, like the most of the italian-americans do. We eat spaghetti as main course and meatballs as second course.
And we aren't "guidos".

That we're either walking around in top hats, sipping tea, and speaking the Queens English and saying things such as "wotwotwot", "by jove", "poppycock" and "cheerio".

Or that we're all cockneys, fresh from sweeping the chimney, walking around with our thumbs in our braces and saying things such as "shine ya shoes guv?" and "applesNpears" whilst giving a stereotypical cheeky cockney wink.

Even in England these are the stereotypes given to Londoners, but outside of England it is the whole English stereotype lol.

Well.... :fear: I think many here know much about Brazil. :wild: :p Or not? :shifty:

In Italy, some people think that Brazil is famous only for Samba, Carnival and transexuals... I don't know if that's real, I don't think so.

Foreigners looking crooked for Brazilians and if is woman.... :fear: The Brazilian woman is seen as a bitch because of our Carnival, where the women wear little clothing :fear: and bla bla bla..... There are many more :fear: :( .... But unfortunately true. In many countries, Brazilians are not very welcome. I know a lot of people who had been in other countries and suffered prejudice for being Brazilian.

Well, there are a lot of people from South America here, so I think there aren't any problems between Italians and Brazilians :)
Brazilians are very welcome, especially if they're good football players and they will play for AC Milan :p

In eternal paradise with Michael
I am from the United States I really don't know what the stereotypes are for my country. But I can tell you what the stereotypes are for my state of Pennsylvania.:

Pennsyltucky (A slang word describing how rural Pennsylvania is. Outside of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.)
There are trailer parks everywhere
That we are all Pennsylvanian Dutch or German
We are all Amish and speak German

Because of that Amish thing we don't use electricity



Well the ones in purple is very true for me. Since I am of Pennsylvanian Dutch heritage. And I am both Amish and Mennonite descent. Even though I am part German I do not have a German accent. But I do know how to speak and read some German. But that electricity thing is just plain ridiculous. Even though I am of Amish origin I use electricity constantly. I live a half an hour away from Lancaster County. Or what I like to call Amish country and the Amish there don't use electricity at all. Or any other modern day conveniences. But the Mennonites are different they can use modern day stuff if they want to.
