Sterotypes going too far? (Author: Unknown)
Here are 2 STRONGLY stereotypical jokes. I hope no one is offended by them! :)
(1) A person belonging to an ethnic/socio-economic group whose members are commonly considered to have certain stereotypical mannerisms met another person belonging to a different ethnic/socio-ecomonic group with a different set of imputed stereotypical mannerisms. The first person acted in a manner consistent with the stereotypes associated with his ethnic/socio-ecomonic group, and proceeded to make a remark which might be considered to establish conclusively his membership in that group, whereupon his companion proceeded to make a remark of the double entendre persuasion, the first meaning of which could be interpreted to indicate his agreement with his companion, but the other meaning of which serves to corroborate his membership in his particular ethnic/socio-economic group. The first person took offense at his remark, and reacted in a stereotypical way!
(2) Q: How many people belonging to a certain ethnic/socio-economic group does it take to perform a particular menial activity?
A: A finite positive integer. One to perform the activity, and the rest to behave in a manner stereotypical of their ethnic/socio-economic group!
