7 Things Pakistani People Do To Appear Cool

We’ve become the very embodiment of neo-colonialism; anything and everything that comes from the West, we’re quick and eager to accept and adopt, and what’s our own we despise and look down upon.

Here’s a list of things that Pakistani people do to appear ‘cool’;

1. Speak in an accent

Absolute favorite thing to do. Accent=Educated=Foreigner=OMG

So we try our level best to pronounce everything in an American or British dialect, convinced that it will help impress people, land us jobs, and also help us find a girlfriend/boyfriend.


Like TOTAllyyy.

2. Get expensive gadgets and brag about it

Latest iPhone? Latest DSLR? Latest car model? You name it, they have it. They will tell you elaborate stories about their gadgets and quote to you the exact price.
