Do you know a Jewish guy from Montreal? Us too. If so, these extremely true stereotypes might ring a bell for you.
- His name is Josh.
It’s true! His parents named him Josh or probably Joshua, but at the very least Josh.
2. He is from Côte-St-Luc.
It wouldn’t be racist to say that our friend Josh is from Côte-St-Luc, because he is.
3. He went to Concordia.
You know what they say about Josh, right? “Josh went to Concordia.” It’s funny, because it’s true. Like most stereotypes about our friend Josh.
4. He buys his jeans mostly at American Eagle and sometimes H&M.
One commonly held belief about Josh is that he prefers midrange jeans that he can buy pretty much in any mall. This may shock some, but it’s true. Those are the jeans that Josh’s prefers.
5. He likes bagels mostly of all kinds but his least preferred one is all-dressed.
He says that they give him heartburn. Typical Josh!
6. He enjoys to ride a bike.
It has been said that people like our friend Josh do not like to ride a bike, but in this case, the stereotype is actually a reverse stereotype: he does! (Please note that for legal purposes here is a picture of Josh Duhamel who is not our friend Josh but is also named Josh. None of the stereotypes applies to Josh Duhamel except the one about the bike.)
7. He likes the movie You, Me and Dupree all right but he does not own it on DVD.
Funny story: our new intern Alessandro has a friend also named Josh who LOVES the movie You, Me & Dupree and watches it a lot. He even quotes from it a lot! Alessandro was sure that our friend Josh was also possessive of this quality that afflicts all Joshies, but as it turns out, he does not! He has seen the film once or twice and remembers it fondly but that is not a stereotype that applies – or does it?
8. He gets his hair cut about once a month.
The rumor is true: Josh thinks about once a month is a decent amount of time to get the proper amount of haircut that makes his hair feel good.
