At first I found this such a stereotypical portrayal of Mexicans. Then I thought about how many of these applied to me. That's when it started becoming hysterical to watch.

Youtube

Check out these guys discussing how to know you're Mexican. They had me at their first one: it ain't Mexican if it ain't late! I usually am. If you are too (and let's face it El Paso- most of us are late here), watch the video and learn. After, scroll to the bottom to see how many of these stereotypes I personally fit in!

NSFW video below.

Lisa's List:

1. Always late (Just ask Buzz)

2. Hand me downs (clothing was recycled throughout all the cousins)

3. Your Uncle is younger than you (My Uncle Felix is younger than me)

4. Parents embarassed me in front of my friends (They had no problem discussing bowel movements, chonies, boys, anything in front of my friends)

5 . I look exactly like them when my mom roasts green chiles at home

6. Everyone gets crazy with me when I say I don't like spicy food. It's like I'm not a true Mexican after that

7. I learned to not touch the iron after I put my hand on it and got 1st degree burns. My dad told me now I know. True Mexican.

8. In high school, my mother used to try and dance like us and would do hand stands, cart wheels and attempt the splits. It wasn't funny, until the other moms joined in. Then we all shared in the embarassment.

So how many of these does your own family do? Hopefully as many as mine. I'll feel a lot better about myself.
