“Bof youse too white!”

Walking down the boardwalk at the beach last night, we were accosted by a gentleman selling lottery tickets.

In the strangest accent he said, “Buy the ticket that will grant all your wishes!”

Then, without missing a beat, he said, “you ain’t from ’round here, are ye?”

I told him he had a really funny accent and asked him why he thought I “ain’t from ’round here.” His response: “Bof youse too white! Natives is burnt!”

We discovered that neither was he a native, he was from Puerto Rico.

So, in order to blend in, my new goal while in Brazil: get burnt!
