"For every good laugh, there is an equal and opposite good cry"

On the subject of amusing myself with stereotypes, is it alright if the apparent victims do it themselves? From ¡No Pasarán!

A slight acquaintance with them will suffice to show you that, under the most imposing exterior, they are the weakest and worst part of mankind.
