Another Stereotype of the Month entry:

Saw this recently
FunPic appears to be a Hungarian site featuring the "biggest collection of funny, cute, crazy or interesting pictures and videos. Among the Funpics is this "funny, cute, crazy" picture of three Asian babies dressed as Indians.
Two of them have tomahawks and necklaces of (human?) bones. One of them is making a "whoo-whoo" motion. The third one has a stirring spoon. All three are wearing loincloths, warpaint, and feathers in headbands.
They're roasting a fourth baby dressed as an explorer in a pot. Presumably they're going to eat him once he's cooked. This baby is crying because he's unhappy about his fate.
Needless to say, the whole thing is stereotypical in the extreme.
