You stereotypical Irish are all alike - blaming Middle America... We bring you Bugs Bunny, sweet corn, good ol' fashion corn-raised beef steaks, and what do we get in return???? Stereotypicalizing!! Southern America brought you Dukes of Hazzard and pickled pigs feet.

Besides, we don't use none of them extra-like syllable thangs in our speech. Just plain talk fer just plain folk.

Now, if you would like to talk Northern American - then we have something to discuss, eh! But, please, no more than 2.5 syllables per word.

And the only reason we Freedom-Loving Americans (trademark) don't fence off the whole border (um, your southern, our northern) is because occassionally, and only occassionally, we like maple syrup with our pancakes. And hockey. And don't think it would be too hard to lay a fence right through the middle of four of those Great Lakes, either. We could, you know.

Fences through the lakes, but I thought you Americans just drained them into caves overnight

Nationality: Argentinian

Stereotype: Chaotic, slow-paced. Business based on an elitist network of families

This could pretty much sum up big business in every country in the world, couldn't it? Most big businesses, and many governments, are run by elitist groups of families.
