A few months ago, Indians shared their experience of answering people who asked them where do they live in India. While that was an exercise to show it’s easier to succumb to stereotypes to avoid a conversation, this meme is the exact opposite.

Here are the most sarcastic reactions to “You don’t look like..”:

1. Or protesting against ‘Padmaavat’.

2. That sounds tasty though.

3. Ouch!

4. Don’t leave out fafda!

5. That would be a sweet combo.

6. No love for idli?

7. And wearing a ‘Gangs of Wasseypur’ t-shirt.

8. That’s so cliched.

9. An AAP cap is a must as well.

10. Plot twist!

11. K.C. Das’ sweets are the best!

12. Careful now.

13. Whoever thinks that should be dipped in Jasmine oil.

14. Organised. I like that.

15. So, you can talk to fish?

16. That’s oddly specific!

17. That’s the sound to which I wake up everyday.
