In the United States, the people from the South- and what people mean when they say is like Appalachia where the 'red necks' are- are the ones who people sort of like to pretend aren't really part of their country...

So what is it in your country?

Germany, well. We all wear leather pants all the time, we don't drink anything but bear and we basically eat Pretzels and "Schnitzel". We aren't funny and we never laugh. We are getting angry if somene tells a joke, we are punctual, We are pitting towels on sunloungers in the early morning (haha we really do that (: ) We usually have blond hair. We are all Nazis. Oktoberfest. Oh, and we love sausages.

I love being Australian :)

Everyone seems to think Australia is so small - when on holidays you say you're from Australia and people will say - I know someone in Australia, do you know Paul?

Australia is huuuuge and I am from Perth one of the most isolated cities, it can take days and days to even drive out of my state!!

I'm Polish so.... There's a lot to tell. Generally people think that we steal wahtever we see. It's obviuosly not true. :) True is that we complain... a lot. It's like a scheme to start a conversation. What's next ? Och,of course - we can drin all vodka in the world. Well... It's true people here usually drink this, but I guess we are nothing in comparison to Russians. ;)

American...we're all fatty's, loud, and rude. I live in the South and I must say a lot of the stereotypes that come up about the South are true. Highly conservative and religious, lots of overweight people, bad accents, and uneducated people...but we do wear shoes!

I love America though, just not the South. :l

Baha, my mom knew an exchange student from Germany that came to school on the first day wearing leather pants. I died when I read this.

Okay that's strange. Well, in some parts of Germany people really wear leather pants from time to time and it's normal. Where I live.. Nobody ever does. People would just laugh at you (:

You have relatives or even you have a nickname that consists of repeated syllables.
My cousin for example is called "Koko"

We're all terrorists. Or Jewish.. which is nearly synonymous in some people's books.

I am from SC and I love it, just would never ever live there again. Most people seem to have too small worldviews, and cannot think beyond a three county radius.
