Long Island is a locale that is often teased about its stereotypes and some of its residents make those stereotypes difficult to refute (just like any other city, state or geographical region that is saddled with stereotypes) and last night on the ride home as my snobby Manhattan friends and I (that was sarcasm) joked about the Long Island locals, it reminded me of a piece The Daily Show did a few months back about Long Island wanting to secede from New York and become it's own state. This being The Daily Show, obviously this is not something that is really a true news issue, but the piece they put together is absolutely hilarious. Even if you have no concept of some of the Long Island stereotypes, the poor idiots they suckered into appearing for this piece will still have you howling with laughter.
