Stereotypes – cruel, but funny


‘One of the few moments of happiness a man knows in Australia is that moment of meeting the eyes of another man over the tops of two beer glasses’

– note found by English novelist Bruce Chatwin, written on the flyleaf of a book, in a second-hand bookshop in Alice Springs.

 ‘If a Frenchman goes on about seagulls, trawlers and sardines, he’s called a philosopher. I’d just be called a short Scottish bum talking crap.’

– former Leeds player Gordon Strachan, referring to French-born Manchester United soccer star Eric Cantona
