According To Twitter, Here Are The Worst Yet Funniest Movie Stereotypes

If you've watched enough movies, you start to become familiar with the Cliche's associated with certain types of people. You know, all those movie character stereotypes like the competitive soccer mom, the kind-hearted cop or the fat best friend. They can be tiresome, but when called out and identified, they're actually pretty funny. Rory Turnbull, an assistant linguistics professor in Hawaii (according to his Twitter bio) tweeted a movie trope about his profession that nailed the stereotype so hard the tweet went totally viral.

I wear my tefillin wrong and don't really know how to pronounce the Hebrew of liturgical phrases that get said 3 times a day, every day.
