    ***Stereotypes: The Insidious Kartvelians***

    A forum on ethnic stereotypes is an excellent opportunity to highlight the specter of the Kartvelian menace. :o

    The perfidious nature of these people is easily seen in their cruel oppression of the Abkhazians and Ossetians in their midst. Yet few seem to remember that their brutality has extended far beyond their own borders. One of their number, Yosip Dzhugashvili, seized control of the entire Soyuz Sovyetskikh; his murder of millions of its citizens tends to be forgotten in view of his defeat of Schicklgruber of Osterreich during the Great Patriotic War. :shock:

    Yet the ambitions of Sakartvelo are not even limited to the Eurasian continent — they have even infiltrated the US military! Shalikashvili — what kind of name is that for an AMERICAN general?! :?: :!: The insidious nature of Kartvelian plotting is underscored by the fact that most Americans have no idea what I’m talking about! :roll:

    Sakartvelo — a country to watch warily. :evil:

    KIEV, Ukraine Communists unveiled a monument to Soviet dictator Josef Stalin on Wednesday, sparking the anger of Ukrainian nationalists.
    The unveiling comes ahead of Sunday’s 65th anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany. Many Communists revere Stalin as commander-in-chief during the war. :o

    Meanwhile, in Jerusalem, Israeli authorities unveiled a monument to Adolph Hitler outside the Knesset. In response to the general public outrage and rioting, they were quick to point out that the Holocaust galvanized the movement to establish Israel as a Jewish state, and created the international sympathy necessary for its success. ;-)

    Smart and Creative People, read on:

    For english i have to write a ‘Speculating A Cause’ Essay. I need some interesting trends/phenomena to write about. Some examples are (examples i don’t want to do): Tattoos.(trends) Obesity in Americans.(trends) Cheating.(phenomena)

    Catch my drift here?? If you have any interesting ideas on what i could write about (it needs to be at least two pages so keep tht in mind as well) Your insight would be very much appreciated!!!!! Gratsi.

    • iluv2cutfarts says:

      You should do masturbation, and the increase of it amongst not only men, but women too, because of the ease in which pornography is now rampantly available over the Internet.

      Sad, but true. You could end with ideas for helping those out who are addicted to porn.

      Good luck.


      • rosiecheeks says:

        Lol haha Mitch very funny.

        If there was a way to PROVE masturbation has increased in men and women, i would. I am not even sure if it would fit under trend or phenomena. Probably phenomena. But thanks for ur insight, it was appreciated and made me laugh.

        • iluv2cutfarts says:

          There’s tons of research available over the Internet of it’s increase. It’s not only a problem in the world, but a really bad problem in the church today.

          It would definitely qualify as a phenomena, and you never know who you might be able to help through your research.

          You should seriously consider it.

          • Evan Owen says:


            I beg to differ. I’ve NEVER seen anyone masturbating in a church, and I’ve attended quite a few denominations. But even if true, it would be preferable to child molestation. :shock:

            “You should seriously consider it.” What — like there’s any adolescent who HASN’T considered [masturbation]? :razz:

            • Dear Evan Owen,
              Actually, the problem of mastication seems to have infected my people in our society, especially the young. Why I have even seem people engaging in acts of mastication in such places as restaurants. What is this world coming to.
              And speaking of perfidious trends, what’s this I hear about thesbian liberation. Why do we need to focus on the oppressions of thesbians? I’m sorry of people such as Rosie O’Donnell have had their difficulties as thesbians, but the oppression of their kind goes at least as far back as William Shakespeare. Come to think of it, perhaps the reason that Homer went blind was partly for being one of the roots of thesbianism as well as masticating. We would all be better off if we did nothing and if we were nothing. That way we can avoid problems such as mastication and thesbianism.

            You silly dragon…I wasn’t talking about some dude doin’ the gerkin jerkin in church! I was talking about how the invasion of porn over the Internet has increased the disease of infidelity and the horrible habit of masturbation because of it.

            It’s a very taboo subject matter – I understand. But think about how it has invaded the homes of the married and those who are leaders in the church. 87% of the clergy from all denominations have both people in leadership and pastorial roles that are hooked to porn.

            It’s a sad and cheap substitute for real love. It’s lust and it’s exploitation. I knew porn stars when I lived back in Southern CA. I use to work out with them at the gym all the time, and every time I asked them why they did what they did – know what they said? Because they started watching the crap when they were younger. It’s a horrible disease.

            It’s just sad is all I’m saying.

      Re: obesity, speculating a cause:

      Check out “high fructose corn syrup,” a relatively recently developed sweetener now added indiscriminately to a wide variety of foods and especially junk beverages. It’s an alleged culprit in the obesity epidemic. :shock:

      • iluv2cutfarts says:

        Yeah – that and kids today are nothing but fat asses that sit on their fat asses play dumbass video games and sipping on 80oz Coca-Colas, Slurpees and Red Bull. No wonder.

        When I was younger, I was out and about until the street lights came on. The deal was homework gets done first, and then I was out! If I wasn’t walking, I was running. If I wasn’t running, I was riding something (bike, skateboard, etc…). My body was a machine back then. But kids today are so soft and flabby that even the US Military is having to make concessions for them now.

    Awesome vid, think at 5.14, Gorby gets the top award for that expression! Gorby, just hang in there little fella, I hear you! co-stars were excellent too :)

    cavemen thinking I know is dangerous, so i’ll be brief as I can..a thought entered my brain, I pondered a while, then it was gone. Then my phone rang, it was my nephew Jo Jo complaining about his mum telling him off for saying f**king Ow, after falling hard when playing soccer. I guess he watched your last lesson!

    Anyhoo, he came up with his own idea, far superior to any of mine, asking if Hotforwords could do a monthly book review on….books. HFW has encouraged him to read more and as a result he is a book worm nerd! His idea being, HFWs highlights two or three books covering different ages and genres every month. He thinks schools would like this as with his class mates, parents alike. He thinks it will appeal to a greater audience if presented well; imagining HFWs will be the Hub of all things book related in time to come! ‘HFWs could be really big the world over, the biggest show ever plus I will be able to see more of Marina as well’ – he said, enthusiastically. Publishers and authors would be up for it as free advertising, he continued.

    Asking why I was so quiet I had to explain that old farts who discuss all things great with young boys is deemed as….watch Platonic!
    ‘O, yeah, bummer, I saw that one too’ – said laughing away.
    - However Jo Jo, I guess it’s the silence between the noise that makes the music!’
    ‘Shut up Uncle Mat!’
    ‘Exactly Jo Jo!’
    ‘Has Marina forgiven you for being a jerk off yet?’
    ‘Jerk off Jo Jo?’
    ‘She said you bashed your Bishop loads and was a retard!
    long pause….
    I’m guessing this is the silence you were talking about?’
    ‘Maybe Jo Jo; sometimes it’s good to know when to just shut the f**k. Sometimes you just can’t help it, especially when you have hurt someone because you only hurt your self as much’
    ‘As when you hurt your knee playing football?’
    ‘Soccer! And yes, kind of like that but much worse, can’t put a band aid on it either!’
    ‘I love Beth at school, will she make me go quiet?’
    ‘No, but only if you cause that effect first then yes, but you are way too young to be serious about some one Jo Jo!’
    ‘But you said believe in your own self, have Faith and love always. She’s my Venus, like Marina she is top of the class!’
    ‘Then you must remember always to love her and respect her, promise?’
    ‘Promise. Does this mean our lessons in epigenetics’ are over as well, if you have to be quiet?’
    ‘No, I’ll write them up and e mail them to you!’
    ‘Mum wants a word with you, she looks mad too, bye….’

    So there you have it HFWs, a nine year old boy, enthused about your work, visualising greater things to come. Good idea I thought hense wanting to share with you. Unable to repeat most of our conversation but lets just say he’s a healthy young man growing up with remarkable taste in women!

    anyhoo, have chicken to chase and club! XO

    Mameluco is a Portuguese word derived from “mamluk” (also named Mameluco in Spanish), :roll: used to identify people of mixed European and Amerindian descent in South America. In the 17th and 18th centuries, Mameluco also referred to organized bands of Portuguese :twisted: slave-hunters based at São Paulo, known primarily as bandeirantes.

    Mammaluccu in the Sicilian dialect is used to mean stupid, idiot or simpleton.

    Mameluk was used in Hungary in the last decades of the 19th century as a nickname for Members of Parliament belonging to the governing “Liberal” party. This party governed Hungary for 30 years (1875-1905) and its members in Parliament fulfilled all wishes of party leader and prime minister Kálmán Tisza in order to preserve their parliamentary seats and accompanying privileges.

    Officers of the United States Marine Corps carry a ceremonial Mameluke Sword, and Mamluke swords are used by US army in festivals.

    In Italian American Vernacular English, the term “mamalook” is often used to refer to someone who does something stupid. It has roughly the same meaning as the Yiddish term “schmuck.” However, mamalook is usually used in a joking way, whereas schmuck is more insulting :???: .

    Stereotypical. An arm and a leg? Yikes. The beginning is funny. The part right after that is scary. Experience one too many True Hollywood stories about would-be dream girls and The Millionaires Club and it’s enough to cause a boy to stop even trying.

    F7ck selling out. F7ck people who only want what you have an not you. The mere thought of sex without kissing repulses me. Without kissing there is no passion, and without passion there is nothing worth pursuing. But then again I think in much deeper and long-term historical context than the average pop-tart wanting to be rich and/or famous in the eyes of strangers regardless of the intimate self-respect lost forever in the process…

    But back to the lighter topic at hand: stereotypes.

    Stereo – as in to differentiate separately? Like the way stereo music has two separate/different channels?

    And then along comes 7.1+ Channel Digital Surround Sound f7cking up the program…

    Although actually that might make a good allegory for a new and better way of assessing individuals aside from the myopic generalizations stereotyping is associated with. Hmmm…

    Oh look! You have a cast. Cool. The writing and acting was cute and your friends are actually quite funny. So you’re rich now?

    Ah the good-life of internet professional production grade operations…

    I came to Hollywood because it is where much of the imagery that historically influences the world originates, which means it’s a very useful, helpful, almost-necessary, and powerful launch vehicle to have – but without my soul I would be worthless – so I might get assertively offensive if anyone ever were to approach me with some of the nonsense suggested in your video.

    F7ck them. F7ck that.

    If I were a hot girl and some Hollywood douchebag approached me like that I’d say “I’m a star – not a whore, but you can lick this.” then pull out my cellphone camera with one hand say “Smile, you’re on Candid Camera…douche.” and take a picture of me flipping them off with the other and go put it on my blog Jenny McCarthy-style or whatever.

    God a hate predators that corrupt the art form and integrity of the industry.

    That aspect of Hollywood repulses me. But I might just be a dumb good-hearted country boy…with a genius I.Q. and far more epic dreams and designs and experience than most to begin with…that doesn’t take shit from assholes regardless of who they are…but I digress. Meh.

    But in lighter/brighter/righter news – here’s that Simpson’s episode I randomly mentioned on Sunday. “She’s as right as her hair is brown.”

    And strangely enough your initial warning was wrong – I wasn’t offended by this video…just had a moment of ‘Oh shit – did Marnia get her Mercedes the same way a previous blonde Barbie doll I momentarily dated did???’

    Oh God I hope not – that traumatized me and made me hate money and withdraw from the previous Hollywood social circles on levels that probably didn’t do wonders for me either…but I was raised in rural Texas where people have souls and morals, and to lose that for the hollow garbage I’ve seen in Hollywood isn’t even comprehensible as an option for someone like me.

    Oh well. Don’t suppose you have an identical triplet sister that hasn’t been quite so fiscally Americanized yet?


    Putin? American missiles? Hollywood, Malibu, Santa Monica and WTF is really going on?

    Some people give money and power a bad name. I’ve personally seen money destroy far more lives built on flimsy relationships than anything else I could fathom. I’ve also seen evil people use money to be even more evil – and that is the most twisted thing there is. Since such behavior is the last thing on Earth I would ever want to endure or deserve I keep money out of the Love equation period, and frankly think that people who have to lie or pay to get sex are pathetic. If you can find love and happiness on solid ground first then add money – great. If it us the sole attraction from the start, then all you have is a recipe for tragedy. Sigh.

    Call me a rebel. Like I give a f7ck. But do watch that Simpsons episode b/c it has some very interesting parallels to this lesson.

    Or that might just be stereotypical conspiratorial comedic thinking.


    My soul is too valuable to sell anyway.

          I must add I wrote it not to humiliate you but to encourage you to the greater attention to the language (English when you write in English and Polish when you write in Polish, as your sentence you’ve written in our mother tongue was also far from perfection).

          I also commit a lot of mistakes but when I have a doubt about how to write something, I use a dictionary – it’s only a few clicks with a mouse. Plus the spellcheck in my browser is on. It really helps in improving the language skills :)

      Authentic Jewish humor: Yakov the Shlemiel

      Once in a shtetl in Eastern Europe, there lived a shlemiel named Yakov. Now, for those of us without Yiddish, a shlemiel is someone who can fall flat on his back — and break his nose!

      Poor Yakov was so clumsy, that every morning when he buttered his bread, it would slip from his fingers, fall to the floor, and always land butter side down.

      But one morning, when he dropped his bread, it landed butter side up! Yakov was so excited that he ran to the rabbi and exclaimed, “Rabbi! Rabbi! this morning my bread landed butter side up! Does this mean I am no longer a shlemiel?”

      The rabbi thought long and hard. He stroked his beard, tugged at his payos; finally, he resettled his yarmulke on his head, folded his hands, and said:

      “Nu, Yakov, I think it only means you buttered your bread on the wrong side this morning.” :lol:

    A mamluk (Arabic: مملوك (singular), مماليك mamālÄ«k (plural), “owned”; also transliterated mamluq, mamluke, mameluk, mameluke, mamaluke, marmeluke, or marmaduke) was a soldier of slave origin who had converted to Islam. The “mamluk phenomenon,” as David Ayalon has called it, was of great political importance and was extraordinarily long-lived, lasting from the 9th to the 19th century AD. Over time, mamluks became a powerful military caste in various Muslim societies. Particularly in Egypt, but also in the Levant, Iraq, and India, mamluks held political and military power. In some cases, they attained the rank of sultan, while in others they held regional power as amirs or beys. Most notably, mamluk factions seized the sultanate for themselves in Egypt and Syria in a period known as the Mamluk Sultanate (1250-1517). The Mamluk Sultanate famously beat back the Mongols and fought the [Crusaders]. :???:

    Talk about Sterotypes! Is there anything Russians won’t rip off?!? Who is the Marina wannabe!?!

    • pedanticKarl says:

      That’s Sofiya. Some of the old timers around here remember her from about 2 years ago or so. She started off with some semi nude videos and later had a handful of short lessons like the one you posted. Later she took them all down, then put them back up again with a dating web site which is now defunct.

      Since imitation is a sign of flattery, it demonstrates very clearly to those of us who watched Sofiya for a short time, that what Marina does is very special and Marina puts a lot of work into her videos. There are other Marina copy cats and none of them even come close. There was a hot real estate copy cat and a hot tools copy cat and they all have petered out after several videos. There still is another YT channel that does word origins, but their delivery and approach is very boring. None of them have sustained what Marina has done. You just can’t stick a pretty face in front of the camera, read some lines and hope the views start rolling in. It takes a lot of energy, passion, charisma, presence and intelligence which Marina has. There can only be one HotForWords and Marina is it.

    • rosiecheeks says:

      LMAO. Oh shit i gotta subscribe to her channel!

      What i dont understand is why does Marina have ASIAN and VIETNAMESE in the video. I mean vietnamese IS Asian. If anything, she totally made fun of asians twice. HOW MEAN. I am part asian. and yes i am OFFENDED. :???:

      • iluv2cutfarts says:

        Oh rosie – she made fun of more white people than any other ethnicity. Don’t go all Ching-Ching-Ting-Ting-Ping-Ping on me now!


      • BobbyBananna says:

        Rosiecheeks, vietnamese is indeed asian, but the whole video was not about that. It doesn’t matter if they mean the same thing! Vietnamese and Chinese (asian) are complete 2 opposite cultures. Thats the point. The way they speak and act is what she is making fun of. Vietnam and China are completely different, so yes, they are [technically] making fun of asians twice, but she is making fun of 2 cultures. :roll: :roll:

      • James says:

        You are offended because you are part asian… If you are offended by that, then it proves that you ARE offended because you are part asian.

      • Evan Owen says:

        She was TRYING to be offensive. Don’t tell her you are, or she’ll think she succeeded. :razz:

        • iluv2cutfarts says:

          Bah! Don’t worry about it Evan. Some people are just dense. They couldn’t find their butts with both hands if a bell were attached to it.


    • pedanticKarl says:

      By the way iluv2cutfarts,
      You might want to replace the word “Russian” with “American”. Chances are that it wasn’t Sofiya that is/was ripping off HotForWords as it were, but most likely her American husband. When he had the dating site up, there were several videos of him talking about finding a Russian wife and that he had been married to her for four years at the time, etc. etc. I bet that he found the HotForWords site before his wife Sofiya did and probably figured that he could exploit his wife. My small amount of research indicates that the other HotForWords copy cats were also exploited as it shows in their videos that there is no passion from the heart as there is with Marina’s videos.

      • iluv2cutfarts says:

        Nah – Russians are notorious for their thievery. They’ll even steal another person’s dirt, if given the chance. She’s probably the one who came up with the idea, and told her husband that he wouldn’t be gettin’ laid anymore, unless he went along with it.


        BTW – there is one stereotype that no one has mentioned, and I didn’t dare approach earlier. Even a fart blaster like me has his “line-in-the-sand” that I won’t cross. Can you guess what it is? I’ll give you a lil’ hint. It involves someone eatin’ Watermelon and Fried Chicken. That, and or Gansta Rap.


        • BobbyBananna says:

          iluv2cutfarts, how in God’s Name did you come up with that russians are thieves? :roll: :roll:

          • iluv2cutfarts says:

            First of all – my stinky brown friend – do not use the Lord’s name in vain.

            Secondly – it’s a stereotype. You know – the subject matter at hand?

            I know Russians up here in the area of the US that I live in, and this is a joke amongst them (and I doubt it’s a local joke). Plus – I’ve seen others make fun of this behavior before.

            Don’t get your banana peel all in a wad!

    BTW, in my younger days, I was a classified defense worker in Southern California, and my security office instructed new employers like me to not get duped by sexy Eastern European women who try to take advantage of young, horny engineers into giving up defense secrets. Good thing for me that Marina was too young to have been a KGB spy back then.

  23. PageDoll says:

    I just noticed that there’s a picture in the video I made that is a screen shot twitpic of this video being made. That was a long time ago! :shock: What a project Marina, way to go! :smile:

    PK, why is there a gray dot in the pics that are in the recent comment box? :cool:

    • pedanticKarl says:

      Hi Mike, I saw those small square gray areas in every one of those avatars in the Recent Comment box. I was on the iPhone at the time and zoomed in on the small gray areas. I don’t know what they are for. Maybe it’s a potential feature where that area becomes a red flashing LED of sorts as an indicator for something, like you have a response or you have messages or something like that. Just a stab in the dark.

  24. This was a {TOUR DE FORCE}, Dearest Teach. Without a doubt one of your best.

    As for the prevalance of the “F-word”: Lighten up and keep things in perspective, folks. This was fuckin’ hilarious! :shock: ;-)

    Thanks, Marina. Truly awesome lesson.

  25. Well, I’m half Polish & half Italian so I’ve heard plenty of Polish jokes and questions about family members being in organized crime. BTW, for the changing of the light bulb joke, I’ve also heard that one grabs the bulb while 100 others rotate the house.

  26. bsomebody says:

    hmmm… still digesting this one. It had some pretty funny bits, definitely toeing the line :cool: . The social lesson at the end was pretty cool, but if we were making this lesson on prejudging, I would have liked to see the difference between stereotypes and useful generalizations. Who knows, maybe that is part II for next week…

    I think the reason I am so betwixt myself is that this had some really good work in it, could have been a really great piece… pretty good though.

  28. Marina, please, could you do the word “Mamihlapinatapei”? It’s a very interesting word describing something very beautiful, also it holds the title of the Guinness Book of World Records as the “most succinct word”! I’m sure you’ll love it! BTW, if you DO chose this word, please say “Ratko” asked for this word, I want my friends here to envy me and praise me as god lol :) All the best from Serbia ;)

    • James says:

      Whoa, looks interesting… I’ll second that.

      • It is. It describes a most wonderful and kinda complex romantic feeling between two people. That’s why I think it’s perfect for Marina, she’ll make it epic :) And also I imagine it’s only a matter of time before Marina chooses to do this word anyway, so I might as well get the credit and acknowledgment from Marina yaaaay :)

        evan, i’m not sure if you totally fit the bill. ask all your non-”white” friends what kind of stereotypes they can come up with. there’s a bunch out there.

        • Evan Owen says:

          Sean, you may be right. I was talking (in Spanish) with our company gardener, Miguel Gomez, about his new employee. “He works cheap because he’s a wetback,” he commented; then added, chagrined, “I shouldn’t have told you that — I forgot you’re a gringo!” So maybe I didn’t fit his stereotype of a whitey. :lol:

  31. seesixcm6 says:

    Dear Marina,
    I was out this weekend, so I didn’t see this video until today. You certainly put lots of work into it. Some of your humor is mean, but it shows how unfair many stereotypes actually are.
    I’m glad the weather is finally getting warmer, and I hope you have a good summer. :razz:

    Marina. Can you fix a little glitch in your new set up? When I or we click on an image url that is in blue it takes us to the picture. But when you click on the X to close out the picture it takes us back to the thumbnail at the top of the page instead of back at the comment that we were at. Then we have to scroll back down to the comment that we were on. Thank you Maam for any further tweaking. :grin:

  38. pedanticKarl says:

    Speaking of cougars, here is my proposal for a
    new definition of a non-stereotypical marriage
    plan for men & women of the 21st century.

    When a man reaches the age of 20, he must marry,
    but he can only marry a woman in her 40s. The idea
    is that both of them will have reached their sexual
    peak and are therefore perfectly matched.

    Then, 20 years later when the man is 40, he must get
    divorced and he must now marry a 20 year old woman.
    Again, the idea is that both of these people will have
    an equal sex drive making for a perfectly matched couple.

    Then, 20 years later when the man is 60, he must get
    another divorce and now marry a 60 year old woman. Again,
    the notion that is being entertained is that both of them
    are sexually compatible.

    There you go, another mystery solved by…. what, what are you saying?
    Oh, so some of you want to perpetually stay married to a 20 year old?
    Well, I didn’t say my plan was perfect or foolproof.
    Responses to my Request For Proposal (RFP) can be sent to
    PO Box Hip Hip Hooray which should include 2 million dollars in cash.

    • leoNard says:

      Pro divorce—The pejorative term gender apartheid (or sexual apartheid) has been applied to segregation of people by gender,["Women clergy accuse Church of sexual apartheid". The Guardian (Guardian Unlimited).,3604,580180,00.html. implying that it is sexual discrimination. :cry: no virgins for Karl :lol: Origin of sex segregation
      The roles of men and women have been different
      for most of human history since prehistoric times. In hunter-gatherer societies, both past and present, hunting has been largely a male preserve while gather has been a female role.

    • Bob says:

      What IS a {Cougar} anyway?
      Not a Mountain Lion, but maybe a mounted fe-lion? :???:

      • pedanticKarl says:

        That is so funny Bob that you ask since I’m sure someone was going to ask. Then, on top of that, as I was pulling into my garage, there was a relationships discussion about older women and younger men on the radio where the host asked the guest Marla Martenson, what exactly is a cougar? She didn’t know, except to guess that it had to do with young men being prey.

        The generally accepted definition of a cougar is a woman 40 years of age or older who exclusively pursues very young men. The onset of the cougar years is hotly debated. Some feel that a cougar can be as young as 35, but women of this age would not be viewed as cougars unless their sexual conquests were no older than 25; the ten-year age difference seems to be an unspoken but accepted minimum between partners. A cougar may be married or unmarried, and some even go after their daughters’ boyfriends.

        Although the term ‘cougar’ comes from the big-game predatory cat of the same name, the cougar connection also may allude to the wearing of animal print clothing by older and more sexually aggressive women.

        Examples of cougars is Mrs. Robinson (Ann Bancroft) seduces fresh-out-of-college Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) in the film The Graduate. Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher (15 years), Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins (12 years), Barbara Hershey and Naveen Andrews (21 years).

        Here is the Urban dictionary for more definitions.

    • pig-in-a-poke says:

      Hmmm! Interesting Karl, but might that double the population, as a man would have 2 wives in child bearing ages? And, If one missed out on the 40 year transfer, can he make up for lost time when he is 60 by having one 20 year old and one 60 year old wife? Whoohoo!

  39. pandion says:

    This was such a fun lesson. I am sure you had a blast making it. A Russian friend of mine, hates that Russians are always the bad guys in films and TV shows. I liked the way you alluded to other Russian stereotypes in this lesson.

    Other stereotypes:
    Germans are rude
    Italians are obnoxious
    Red heads have a temper
    Gypsies are liars and thieves
    Indians work at a call center until they can buy a convenience store
    Indians work at a casino

    I could write more, but since I am white and southern, I have to go screw my cousin, and then take the truck off the cement blocks in the front yard before I check my moonshine still.

  40. rimbaud says:

    I thought stereotypes were those old-fashioned 3D photographs.

  41. Hiya Teach! :grin:
    I thought that was a good lesson on stereotyping; sociologically as well as etymologically. We all know stereotypes are bad, and you pointed that out succinctly. Oh, here’s a bad stereotype for my homework: an east Indian is always the one on the other end of the tech or customer service line, alternately the surly dude behind the convenience store counter.
    Admittedly a lot of use of f#ck. If I may speak in your defense, as I am wont to do, in the final cut, you only said it once, and that was quoting Stevie Ryan, compared to ten uses by your guests. Ah, well, as long as the French are still fair game, I’ve heard some that say f#ck way too much anyway. BTW if you ever wanna piss off a French waiter, call him ‘garcon’. It’s not exactly a title of respect to ‘em. ;-)
    Love to (Wonderful) Teacher,

  42. jmcargal says:

    1. Somehow I missed where the word comes from. I already knew what it meant.
    2. Stereotypes tend to be offensive to the degree that we are afraid that the stereotype is true, unless as Marina says we are talking about the French, in which case the stereotypes are of course generally accurate.
    3. I am puzzled as to why you showed so many stereotypes without showing the classic stereotype of math professors being great lovers.

  44. lars2 says:

    I wasn’t offended, I thought it was very clever !

    But, as per your Twitter request;
    We (i) hate stereotypes because they are too narrow,
    real people aren’t that narrow.

    Real people have much more dimension to themselves,
    their ways of being in the world,
    their personalities.

    Real people can be stereotypes,
    but for probably only 5 to 10 minutes at a stretch,
    or maybe only 30 seconds,
    then they shift back to being themselves and not being stereotyes.

    A stereotype is Art immitating Life,
    but Art is a 2 dimensional representation of Life,
    people are 3 and 4 dimensional.
    (time as the 4th dimension)

  48. The “Mexican” Stereotype is lika a black hole for all latin americans! Many people on the US see all latin americans as if we were all mexicans (and we really hate that)!

    Once, back in 1997 I was visiting some relatives I have in Salt Lake City. I remember that one guy asked me which part of Mexico was Venezuela… I didn’t know what to do: Punch him or just laugh at his ignorance…

    Now, I think venezuelans have another stereotype thanks to our part-time dictator/part-time stand-up comedian, Hugo Chavez. However, I’m not pretty sure about how does the world see us… As people escaping from a tropical communism or as communist agents… or whatever.

    Can anyone tell me something about that? I won’t feel offended at all (I’m the first one to laugh at me, so…)

But hey, here in the USA we have “Hollywood Types” and congress members who admire this Chavez fellow and his views. I don’t know, maybe I’m stereotyping him but our government definitely isn’t squeeky clean either. The area I live in there’s a district that proudly displays a statue of Lenin.

  57. ektheeconomypuzzler says:

    I was the badguy in every commercial growing up, most people are automatically the good guy in whatever ‘routine’ or ‘jump’, someone wrote a speach and made it so commercials made me the ‘un trick semi bad guy’, or the ‘re-un jump’. Throughout my life I’ve seen commercials rule people’s minds. I could literally look at people and basically know what stereotypes they would let themselves allow fairly. Commercials rule stereotypes in a huge way, if everyone was how i had to react to commercials as the un-jump, or the ‘un’ when i had to be the bad guy, we would have an incredibly closer knit world, and stronger economical system.

    When I was in Paris in 1991, I was impressed by how very polite and helpful the people were to my friend and me (both Americans). :shock: So no, the French are NOT “fair game.” :evil:

    • Bob says:

      Well said! It’s true that, like any other nation, the French can be insufferable, but when I lived there I found most of them to be quite charming.
      Very often, when you find someone being unpleasant to you, it’s a reflection of some aspect of yourself that you are seeing.

      • The same is true of the Quebecois. Before I went there, I had been warned that they don’t like English-speakers, and that they really hate Americans.

        Traveling around Quebec, I was pleasantly surprised to find people warm and welcoming even though my French was relatively non-existent.
        My second day in Quebec, I was honored to meet a farmer near Beloeil who wanted me to trade guitar lessons for a few days of farm living. His 3-generation family all lived in the same big farmhouse they had occupied forever.
        Although I had been invited to stay there, I worked hard for the privilege. Every day we went out beekeeping, doing building maintenance, or hoeing endless rows of strawberries from sunup to sundown. Dinner by Grandma was never short of incroyable. Then I’d give an after-dinner music lesson.

        I had a blast, learned a lot and have seldom been treated so well while traveling. Other people I met while visiting there confirmed it. To me, these were a very friendly and accommodating people.

        I think they put up with me largely because I tried hard to communicate in their language the best I was able. If I demonstrated that I was willing to meet them halfway in communicating, they almost always went out of their way to help me.

        • Bob says:

          I’ve found the same is true of any nationality; if you make an effort to meet them half way and show that you’re trying to speak their language they will always warm to you.

    Aye, ye forgot the perennial Scotsman !
    and the Beverly Hills rich bitch, er woman,
    and the Mafia guy,
    the accountant/CPA,
    the pot smoking hippie,
    the groupie girl,
    the politician (hey, hey, baby, get into my big black car, i just want to show you what my politics are)
    Donald Trump,
    the Wall Street Gangster/Banksters,
    the nerdy science guy geek,
    the cowboy,
    the arrogant Texan,
    and Mr. Knowitall !

    But hey, then it would take 6 weeks to make the video instead of five days of work.

    I thought it was good,
    especially the socially redeeming importance at the end,
    “Stereotypes are devices for saving a biased person the trouble of learning.”

    - –

    And here I was imagining you were having a fun May Day at the Renaissance Faire ! (speaking of stereotypes !)

    Argh, fetch me another tankard of ale ye buxom wench, and a turkey leg to boot !

    Whats up with the vampire post Marina?
    Stevie’s french chick remined me of a joke…
    So this old drunk guy sits own at the bar and orders a drink. When he does, he see this woman at the other end of the bar with incredibly hairy armpits feverishly waving for the bar tender. The guy says, give me a other drink and send one down the ballerina and the end of the bar. Bartender asks, now do you know shes a ballerina? Guy says, How else could get her leg that up high?

    A good video and a rotten video.

    Please try to leave the F*** word on the curb. It doesn’t add one bit to the performance.
    When you use it your not really showing any talent whatsoever and it encourages the lower part of words and language.
    Really took what could have been a great video down to a borish yawn.

    Really liked the expressions on Gorby.
    What’s going on Mom?
    What cha doing lady?
    Help, get me away from this gay guy, I’m a womanizer.

    Interesting Arab, especially in light of the bomb in NYC last night.

    Whatever lesson you were trying to teach was lost in the F’s.
    Might have been a fun video to collaborate and put together, but didn’t have much entertainment value.
