I have seen at all of stereotypes about countries it is always bothers me. Don't you all hate when people of other countries say those annoying, stupid and irritating stereotypes about your own country and people?
for ex: in UK you never can eat good food; all Americans are ignorant and fat; all Germans are violent and shout a lot; Swedish women are nympho; Italian are disorganized; Mexican are lazy; and so on.
Tell me the worst or the stupid ones you have read or heard about your country.

My personal favourite is this classic stereotypical view of British people in that they are all wealthy snobs with posh accents, related to Lizzie, love tea and eat crumpets and biscuits. The normal stereotype for us Brits. If only this stereotype was true though. Shamefully, it isn't. Some Brits are complete opposites; some cannot speak English correctly, some are about as useful as a one legged man in an arse kicking contest whilst others have a vocabulary only consisting of swear words.

That stereotype just makes me cringe, as do those who aspire to it.

Yes, many people aspire to be related to the Queen :rolleyes:

Though I fail to see the problem with being wealthy and speaking with a BBC accent; or even the Queens accent.

That's not a stereotype - that's speaking properly and being successful.

There is a stereotype that all British people speak with the same posh accent.

Cheerio Jeeves!

Don't forget the drinking guinness

EDIT: The same as everyone else has said really, that English people are either ridiculously posh, or complete chavs who have a cockney accent.

I don't think that being posh and speaking with recieved pronounciation have to go hand in hand though. I speak properly yet am from a low enough income family to have gotten full EMA and full maintenence grants for uni.

I do of course get accused of being posh by all the northern monkeys at uni :rolleyes:

Barden I agree with you.
I too come from a working class family background, however, speak properly, enough to be mocked for it by people who can barely comprehend the English language let alone speak it.

Which is often quite funny, how can you mock me you mentally deficient twits. But what are you going to do eh?

But none the less, it is a stereotype. I think the Simpson's episode the Regina Monologues sums it up pretty well...

We Turks suffer a lot about stereotypes and prejudices because of being a muslim country but also being a secular one, partly because of our imperial past: Ottoman Empire, and partly because we are descendants of cenghiz khan and atilla who ruined Europe in the past. Western countries see us as eastern underdeveloped society. Eastern countries see us western degenerate *******s who exploited them for centuries.
There are lots of people in Turkey who likes some booze and also lives decent muslim life. Some ppl can not figure out that.
