Full List of Stuff White People Like
How classic is this! The stereotype is so perfectly broken down by this list that it MUST have been written by a white person – though I doubt that they would be able to call themselves a redneck.
I love this so much I am going to comment on the Top 50, and add my own whitey / kiwi spin on it for ya;
#50 Irony – yes, and?

#48 Whole Foods and Grocery Co-ops – Yes, don’t eat torture – pork!!!
#47 Arts Degrees – Snap. Got one, major Sociology, minor Ancient History. I know, WTF was I thinking?
