I cannot fight Galician stereotypes, as I have found that I seem to fit most of them:

-I cook for 20 people when I expect to have 5 guests.
-I try to force feed my guests xD
-I am very indecisive.
-I answer questions with more questions.
-I am too trusting and forgiving and people take easy advantage of my trust.
-I don't believe in witches but I play one xD (the saying is "I don't believe in witches but they do exist")

And more.

There is a joke around that says that Einstein inspired on Galicians to make his theory of relativity, as "it might be or might not".

Two men from Lepe go shopping to get a new pair of shoes. They see a pair that they like, but they are told that they cost €200.
They ask what do they have in special, and the salesman tells them they are crocodile shoes.
So they decide to go to the Nile for some crocodile hunting. After hunting more than a thousand crocodiles they are exhausted.
"Ok" says one of them. "We hunt a couple more crocodiles and if they aren't wearing shoes either we get back home."

Successful propaganda is successful...

Initially it was German war propaganda misrepresenting the actual events, later the Soviets continued repeating the myth to smear pre-war government.

Polish jokes:

Though the Polish jokes are probably older - like in case of Galicians in Latin America case mentioned by Kileanna, there was a wave of immigration to USA in late XIX and early XX century that was in large part composed of under-educated farmers and highlanders seeking better paid work.

Eh, too many sides were interested in keeping up that myth:

First the Germans during WWII. 1939 was basically a grand propaganda victory for Nazis. They successfully concealed the magnitude of their loses suffered by Wehrmacht from both French And British AND Soviets, preventing attack from either side (Soviets would gladly attack them as soon as they could if Germany had shown any sign of weakness).

The French and British had no real interest in challenging the myth either because it make them feel better about their slow response... Which is connected to another big myth common in Poland that French and British were deeply unwilling to exercise their defensive alliance obligations - another successful feat of Nazi German and later Soviet propaganda based on existence of small, unpopular, German-infiltrated pacifist political party in France. In reality it was mostly a case of poor organization, poor command, and old, conservative commanders being unprepared for changes in strategy and tactics occurring at the time.

Then there were the Soviets and later, the Soviet-backed communist government of Poland, which were deeply interested in incriminating the pre-war government, and its western allies.

Italian, American, and other easily impressed journalist were used to spread the tales. Many of them were thinking of those stories in terms of "desperate bravery" which helped the Germans to present '39 campaign as much more one-sided than it was.

BTW: Even I was taught in school that Polish air-force was mostly destroyed on ground.

Funnily enough, it is pronounceable for Poles and clearly a faux-Polish surname (-czycki, -cki, are common Polish family name endings). Kzl- (or possibly Kzł-), is not a consonant mess that would actually appear in Polish but can be pronounced with a bit of hassle.

cz is pronounced like ch in English. ck is... I think that for the purpose of English speakers tzk would be the best approximation.

That would be something like Xss-la-chi-tzky, though written in this way it sounds softer than the original spelling.

Best use of Bull Rush EVER.
And it may not have been strictly legal, but it was the most brilliant tactical move my son has ever made without help, and I allowed it.
The party was entering the Big Fight just before the Biggest Fight at the end of the AP book. They were on the third floor of a building with a central arena and balconies on the second and third floors open for observation. The CR6 demonically-possessed djinn and the CR3 flind were the monsters in front of us. They were standing next to the balcony. The special text at the bottom of the flind's box said that he liked to use his flindbar to disarm his opponents, then kick their weapons over the balcony. I told the kids this, saying that Undrella the Harpy had warned them about this.
And my son rolls the highest initiative, and he looks at me and wrinkles up his nose and points to the flindbar on the pawn.
"He's gonna try to knock my sword with that and then kick it off the balcony?"
"Yes."
::shrug::
"Okay, then, I run at him and push HIM over the balcony."
::blink::
"Okay, give me a d20."
(He gets a 27.)
(Me, madly googling "Flind CMD")
"His CMD is 17. (rolls another d20) And he fails his reflex save. Um, yes, you pushed him over the balcony."
(Son does a happy victory dance in his chair.)

And, YES, I know Bull Rush doesn't technically work that way, but it made a four-year-old happy.

...dons "Grumpy Old Man" hat(TM)...
I don't know whether this is a "this generation" thing, or something I've been fortunate enough to have missed my entire life:

Yesterday as part of Impus Minor's very late birthday party, I provided a massive amount of pizza for the guests. (As lisamarlene can attest, running out of food is never an option at my house.)
So the kids piled enormous heaps of pizza on their plates -- 3-4 slices at once, not just covering the plates, but leaking off the sides.

...and then they barely ate half of what was on their plates and threw the rest out...

I'm talking entire, untouched slices of pizza thrown in the garbage because they took more than they could possibly eat.

I'm pretty pissed off, as it's pretty much like taking dollar bills out of my wallet and throwing them out. WTF?!?!? You're so lazy you don't want to make two trips, so instead you're going to throw food away?

All in all, for 6 kids there were around 4 full slices of pizza in the trash. That's a LOT of waste.

Gets my dander up.

EDIT: And yep, since they're behaving like 3-year-olds, at Impus Minor's next party I'm going to serve them ONE slice of pizza at a time, and condescendingly explain that, since they couldn't manage to feed themselves properly the last time, this time I'll help them...
