So, I was just roaming around the forums, and suddently Family Guy came to my mind. I immediately thought about the amount of stereotypes that show makes, especially the ones with Italians. Now, I'm not touchy or anything like that, I usually laugh when I see those clips, but I'd really like to know if we Italians are indeed seen the same way we're represented in the show. Like, do you really imagine us all as Sicilian wiseguys with greasy hair who always wear a white and dirty tank, dark-blue jeans and black boots and who always put an "a" at the end of every word? I've been working in Brighton, England for five weeks, and when I asked my colleagues if my way of speaking was like that, they told me it was! Now, I shouldn't really be taken into account, since even Italians say I'm a stereotype, but anyway, if you've ever managed to meet an Italian guy, was it really like that? P.S. They don't necessarily have to be adults, you can also take teenagers (like me, after all) into account!
