Do you live up to stereotypes of your area?

ChamucaRobota wins the thread. Viva!

Loves mariachis/has had mariachis on special occasions or while being drunk: Yes.


Well, yes, but who hasn't?

A life without tacos is an empty life: Yup, I love my country's gastronomy and it goes waaaaaay farther than just tacos, burritos, chimichangas and quesadillas so yeah, tremendous stereotype on this one.


I have heard once of a delicacy in Mexico that comes from the rare times when a bead of rainwater enter the husk of an ear of corn, resulting in a fungus on the interior. The fungus is supposed to be astoundingly tasty, but I cannot remember the name of it.

Chamuca, PLEASE tell me you know what the name of this thing is?

I don't think I had any piñatas for me growing up, but having gone to many birthday parties recently I've seen 2 ninja turtles, an Elsa, Minion, Ariel and Hello Kitty get the [s]crap[/s] candy beat out of them all, within a 2-3 month span.

Also don't forget enchiladas, menudo, molé. :P

sorry gob wish I could help but I haven't heard of that

I'm glad that you're still breaking piñatas ^_^
Awww yeah enchiladas and mole. :drool:

Nowadays people makes every kind of piñatas *sigh* modern kids don't appreciate the typical figures but it's cool to see a Ninja Turtle or an exotic dancer piñata sometimes.

@Gob Hobblin

I know, right? Mariachis are now part of every human being.

I think the fungus you mean is huitlacoche, put it on your quesadilla Gob!

As stated by pwhodges, it's a song. It means: "My bell had a purple ribbon". I'm not sure if bell is the exact equivalent for cascabel, though.
And as a curious fact, the author of this song used cascabel as a euphemism for his penis. :shifty:

...I suppose this would be a good time to pump Metalachis, the heavy-metal mariachi group?

Yes, you could say so, actually I was born there and lived until I was 6 but those years were not pleasant at all, people looked down on me just for being half-blood. Certainly, not the best place for a kid to grow. :uhh:

I'm really not sure what the stereotypes for this part of New Jersey are, though I'm going to assume I don't fit them on account of not being Republican. Then again, I am extremely "white"*, have a neutral American accent, and am quite obviously of upper middle class upbringing.

* I think this is a rather inane term and prefer European-American, myself.

Yes I listen to rock n roll, and I live in the south, but no on the sports car. If I drove one, though, I'd like it to be one of the newer Dodge Challengers or Chevrolet Cameros. ^_^

I'm from Minnesota.

I don't sound like a Canadian stereotype who chugged Nyquil.

I also don't live in the wilderness.

I think that ice fishing is stupid.

I am, however, much less vulnerable to the cold than most people

I'm from Texas and people always seem surprised when I tell them that I'm from there, so I'd say no. I don't even have the accent aside from a few colloquialisms and a tendency to elongate my vowels every now and then. So no, I don't wear a cowboy hat or boots and I don't ride a horsey to college.

I live in Northern VA and I've noticed the area I live in is split between rednecks, military, and the ghetto (my community college classes guaranteed I had at least one fellow student was there on the GI bill or wore camo-print jackets and hunted)

But yeah, as for the ghetto part:
do drugs? (at the very least pot) meh, occasionally. no prescription drugs though. (I know some people that do, though) I do smoke, though. Not menthols. :rolleyes:
sell drugs? no
listen to rap? sort of? not really.
on welfare? no
have a weave/fake hair? no
been to jail? no
wear tight clothes? depends on the definition of 'tight' (but not really)

then again, I am mixed so take that however you want

Probably because it's so deeply imbedded in American popular culture and every other Classic Western was set in "Texas" even though as somebody who's been to nearly every part of the state at some time or another, I definitively tell you that Texas looks nothing like how its usually depicted. Poor Arizona and Utah.

I can't answer this without knowing what stereotypes there are for Connecticut and North Carolina (and "WASP", though that's not a place).
