First off, a tip of the hat to Deadspin on this great post. Some pseudo celebrities seem to effortlessly perpetuate so many stereotypes in a single breath. That’s certainly the case in this golden nugget of a quote from Cole Hamels‘ wife and former Survivor participant Heidi “Tits on a Stick” Strobel.
Heidi managed to reinforce stereotypes on the dumb-blonde shtick, the rural south, AIDS orphans, and offend Ethiopians, and vaginas everywhere during an interview with Sports Illustrated:
We’re in the process of adopting an AIDS orphan from Ethiopia. Maybe two. I’m so pumped. I’d adopt six if I could. When I was five years old-I grew up in a very rural town in Missouri, and I had never even seen a black person-they asked us to draw a picture of ourselves in the future, and I drew myself holding hands with a line of tiny black stick figures. I’ve always wanted this.”
