I heard this story about a mexican girl going to Germany for a year of highschool.
The kids there asked her the typical ignorant questions for mexicans such as ''Do you ride donkeys to school?'' ''Do you eat tacos all day?'' and when they asked ''Does everyone wear a sombrero?'' she got tired and said ''Yea we all wear sombreros. Its actually a way to know the level of education people have; the bigger the sombrero the higher education, like, the kids in elementary school got little sombreros and the graduates from University have huge ones.'' And they believed her.
Um, well there was a person in my science class who thought that geckos were actually called Geicos. sweatdrop
And I have a friend who is....not the brightest at times. She once told me that "You should be able to speak Chinese, since you're Chinese!" She actually got in an arguement with me about that. Also she argued with me saying that I should be able to speak Japanese(Cause China and Japan are so close together). And that all Asians have bangs. Also that I eat dog. Apparently she got that information from a joke book....
