Пятничное. Об стереотипы

Почему-то вспомнил видео десятилетней давности, где певица кантри, южная красавица Келли Пиклер феерически подтвердила самый расхожий стереотип о американцах:

- You ready? The 3rd grade world geography question is: "Budapest is the capital of what European Country?" Budapest is the capital of what European country? Nathan has already locked in.
- This might be a stupid question.
- I’m guessing it’s probably going to be.
- Okay. Like... I thought Europe was a country. Let’s see. Budest... Budapest! I’ve never even heard of that.
- Alright, here... here’s your options. I mean you could drop out with $10,000. But you got...
- Wait, I know they speak French there, don’t they? Like I wanna say, is France a countryЯ I don’t know what I’m doing.
- You know what, let’s talk about your options.
- Can I just like... Okay.
- Kell, focus.
- I am... Like I’m listening to what you’re saying, but I only hear what I want to.
- That’s just called being a woman.
- Oh... Boooooooo! Well, we could just call this show "Are You Smarter Than A Man?" I’d win that one.
- Women don’t really want to hear a man’s opinion. They just want to hear their opinion in a deeper voice. That’s what they want when they talk to us. Let’s talk about this. I really want you to get the $25,000 because no matter what happens after that, you’re walking out of here with $25,000 for charity.
- Yes. It’s all about the charity, so I got to think what’s best for them. Let’s see. I am just going to ... copy.
- Copy.
- Come on Nathan.
- If you had to guess... if you had to guess... do you have a guess?
- I don’t think France is a country, but would’ve said that. I dunno... I don’t know. I’m just going to say France. I dunno.
- France is a country, I will tell you that.
- It is?
- If you had said France, you would’ve gone home with nothing.
- Whew...
- That’s not the right answer. The right answer is Hungary.
- Is what?
- Hungary.
- Hungry?
- Like I’m hungry.
- That’s a country? I’ve heard of Turkey, but... "Hungry", never heard of it.
- But the answer is Hungary. So if Nathan said Hungary, your charity’s got $25,000. If he didn’t, you walk away with nothing.
- You’re not smiling, Nathan. You’re not smiling. Awww.
- Kellie, look at the board. For $25,000, your 5th grade classmate Nathan said... Hungary!
- Ahhhhh! Great! You’re the best! Thank you! Yeah! You tried to trick me. He tricked me.
- He tricked you?
- I was looking at his face and he looked like uh ummm messed it up. I failed. But you got it right, yay.

Десять лет спустя, с десятилетним преподавательским стажем, после огромного количества принятых экзаменов мне уже на так смешно.

Кстати, выяснилось, что Келли - консерватор, про неё даже недавно написали: Kellie Pickler is Republican perfection. Почему я не удивлён?
