English inner clichés?
« on: November 14, 2017, 04:07:40 pm »
Hi all,

I don't know in England, but in Spain we have lots of clichés about each region: in Galicia they are suspicious, in Madrid they are cocky, in Castilla they are curt, in Andalucía they are lazy, in Cataluña (if it's still a region) they are thight fisted...

What about England or UK? Can you share your topics? The good ones are also valid, but are not as funny as the bad ones....  ::)

I'm afraid that nothing about regions leaps to mind, although Scottish people are famous for being tight-fisted. (BTW, Vicentesss, you have an extra "h" in your spelling of "tight-fisted" probably from the word "thigh" which does indeed have two occurrences of the letter "h".) Some people like to portray Irish people as being stupid.

In the USA, people from the South are often portrayed as being stupid, and people from New York City are always in a hurry.

In Canada, it is people from Newfoundland who are often portrayed as being stupid.
