"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


wicked fun

Stuff White People Like is one of the funniest satirical blogs on the internet. Some of my favorite posts include:
  • Traveling ("This is when they venture to...Africa. Some do it so that they can one up the white people who only go to Europe.")
  • Study Abroad ("Then there is the conversation killer of studying abroad in Africa. If you studied in Africa, it is usually a good idea to keep it quiet, it will remind white people that they were too scared to go and they will feel bad. Use this only in emergencies.")
  • Standing Still at Concerts ("Remember, at a concert everyone is watching you just waiting for you to try to start dancing. Then they will make fun of you.")
  • Japan ("...all white people either have/will/or wished they had taught English in Japan.")
  • Whole Foods and Grocery Co-ops ("White people need organic food to survive, and where they purchase this food is as important as what they purchase.")
  • The Sunday New York Times ("deep down, all white people are desperately trying to make their life seem like an ad for a Sub Zero refrigerator")
  • Indie Music ("If you mention a band you like and the other person has heard of them, you lose. They own you. It is essential that you like the most obscure music possible.")
  • Wes Anderson movies ("If a white guy takes a white girl to a Wes Anderson movie on their first date, and neither of them have seen it, they will immediately commence a relationship that is reflected in songs by Ryan Adams and Bright Eyes.")

"You can impress white people even further by bringing in a food or drink item that relates to a film. Again using Juno as an example, if you were to come to the party with jugs of SunnyD, it would highlight your keen observation of detail when it comes to watching films. Then they will see that you watch films the same way that they do. Also be prepared to be involved in an Oscar Pool, but make sure you don’t win. If you do, just say that you were lucky."

Luck had nothing to do with it!

As Rod put it, you look at the blog and read it and laugh, but then sigh because you recognize yourself in almost every post.
