Wait… they gave him a nazi birthday cake? This was a host family in the US, wasn’t it?
Because that’s the stereotype for us. We’re stupid, fat, lazy, gun-loving, uncivilized, overly-patriotic bastards.
And I know a few stereotypes for other countries, but I dunno how popular they are. I know that Steve Irwin was basically a walking stereotype (on TV, at least). Finland is a constantly damp place where there’s lots of fishing and satanic black metal fans roam the streets at night. And that’s true for Norway as well. And Germany, minus the dampness but with more Nazis. And Sweden, minus the dampness and with more banks. And cheese. Italy is full of gangsters, motor scooters, fascists and incredibly sexy women (with large eyebrows), but once you get out into the country it’s just olive trees and 4 star restaurants as far as the eye can see. Cuba is half cigar factory, half torture chamber. Russia is one giant sparsely populated wooded area, with the exception of Moscow. Moscow is populated with thick-bearded men wearing identical grey coats with fuzzy bits on the collar and sleeves, and big fuzzy hats, and incredibly ugly women. People there eat only potatoes and are known to take out bears in single combat. Japanese people all have at least one decorative sword in their house, right next to the 20 video game consoles. Everyone is always reading a comic book, and the only time they stop is to solve a complex math problem or commit hari-kari. Every citizen knows karate.
God, this is so much fun.
EDIT: What’s rugby? Is that the one with the flat bat? (sorry, just too obvious a joke for an ignorant American to pass up.)
