Fun with Stereotypes

Eric asked me if I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I wasn’t, but I did think I might have been born with a sarcastic retort in my mouth. He said that would make me British. To be from the USA, I figured that I had to be born with a gun in my hand and independence on my lips. That got me to wondering…what other groups can you distinguish by what they had in their hands and on their lips when they were born?

If you were born with a croissant in your hand and revolution on your lips, then you would be French

If you were born with a knife in your toga and an oration on your lips, then you would be Roman

If you were born with a shillelagh in your hand and Guinness on your lips, then you would be Irish

If you were born with a bratwurst in your hands and war on your lips, then you would be German

If you were born with a vendetta on your hands and love on your lips, then you would be Italian

If you were born with technology in your hands and sushi on your lips, then you would be Japanese

If you were born with a NASCAR collectible in your hand and a plastic spoon in your mouth, then you would be a redneck

If you were born with a computer chip on your hands and recursion on your LISP, then you would be an A.I. programmer

    That there is some funny stuff, what’s wrong with plastic flatware?

  2. Hmm… Scoob is a redneck?

  3. Scoob says:

    Well I do not drink “Bud” or watch NASCAR, and I have all of my teeth nor is my wife my sister. I would not characterize me as a redneck. But plastic “silverware” has a simple ease that is nice at times. e.g. children’s birthday parties, large cookouts, correctional institutions.

    No, though frugal at times out of necessity, Scoob does not fit the widening definition of Redneck.
