joyful German stereotype is the female Berlin cabaret singer performing in male costume, usually referencing Marlene Dietrich or the film Cabaret. Croatians have a reputation for being fanatically patriotic. A Dutchman/woman always knows what others do wrong and how they should correct their behaviour. Together with Switzerland, they are the only Western European country who are not part of the European Union and together with Japan are one of the very few in the world that still practice whaling. They are sometimes also seen as traitors for working with Israel in one way or another (most often, dealing in Israeli weed). For the rest of New England, Maine is Yankee redneck country. Modern stereotypes depict them as either being jazz musicians, gospel choir singers, baptists with loud and punctuated speech, basketball players, dancers, stand-up comics, rappers, soul singers with large Afro-hair, gang members, pimps, and prostitutes. It seems as if theres so many airtime to fill that producers just throw in any soap opera, drama series, comedy program, talk show, movie, TV movie, reality show, animated cartoon series, or religious show they can cobble together.
