A bit of fun found here regarding how US and European countries think about their neighbours in terms of common stereotypes. Other countries' views include France, Greece, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Turkey, Poland etc.
Not to be taken seriously. :p

I barely get any of the latino references in the antepenultimate map. I guess it fits better for our caribbean friends.

Referring to latin America...some of the references

Land of no pubes = 'Brazilian' wax
cocaine = Mexico (drug smuggling)
Macho Picture = Machu Picchu (Peru)
Drama queens (Argentina) - based on the musical Evita "Don't cry for me Argentina" I think

If you think about what the typical American might think of South America, that could make sense :lol:
In other words one would say a lot of stereotypes are clueless
