besides those typical ones, I'm curious what yous think.

The dark skin, Spanish accents, the love of hot spicy food. They are twined nations.

I'm pretty sure you could say this about many cultures.

yes! That was my point.
BTW, my mexican friend says not to defend Maxico City. It's so bad, she says, you need protection to come out of the house.

you need protection to come out of the house.

A Gas mask from all the Diesel fumes is the first line of protection.

Juarez (El Paso) is where you really want to stay away from!

Mexican food is amazing (real Mexican food). Easily worth pursuing.

Neither Mexicans nor Poles wear shorts to mass thats for sure. Mexican men, for the most part, don't wear shorts ever. And I think there are also other similarities: a proud equestrian tradition amongst both peoples, tumultous national histories, quixotic temperments, and Virgin centered churches. The last similarity, in my opinion, gives both peoples their own style in the arts, and in the art of living, which, although quite distinct, share a certain grace which is the boon of devotion to the eternal feminine.

Maybe I'm just to young to understand that :-)

With moustaches you look more distinguished.

Not too many Poles in Southern Calif. The majority of Mexican men here sport a mustache; some of the Mexican women too!

One would have to distinguish between Poles and Mexicans and Polish Americans and Mexican Americans. I'm Polish American and my wife is Mexican American. We're both devout Catholics and from hard working families. Her and her mother both like Polish food better than Mexican while I enjoy Mexican food more. We both like Polkas (not a real Polish dance). The old ethnic joke is: "What do you get when you cross a Mexican and a Polak? You get a kid who spray paints his name on chain link fences."

You say Mexican men don't wear shorts ever? Are you sure about that?

Notice I added the qualifier "for the most part" and you link doesn't disprove my qualified assertion as the Mexicans wearing shorts in it are minors and not men.

not many, besides a common religion.....

My wife and I were members of a Mexican parish when we lived in Arizona. The pastor was a Spanish speaking Polish priest.

The main difference is in the size of the respective sombreros:

I think illegal Mexicans are kinda like British socker hooligans, they come uninvited, trash everything and then pretend that nothing bad happened. I can't find any similarities with Polish though. Sorry.

The main difference is in the size of the respective sombreros:

dude it really shows that you're Polish so why would you pretend to be British? Do you get off on that?

A similarity I can think of is both nations' love of shrooms. Although those in Poland make you see the world the same before and after.

dude it really shows that you're Polish so why would you pretend to be British?

And where did you see me pretend I was British?
I don't think I could be more clear on that.
Care to quote?

My cousin has her last name hyphenated to combine her maiden and married surnames:
Kopaczewski-Gonzalez, I hope she doesn't have to say it too many times in a row, she would be out of breath.

I'm originally from Latin America but have lived in several western european countries and Poland. While living in Scandinavia, some Poles told me that in mentality and humor they are much more closer to mexicans than to scandinavians.

Some similarities which come quickly to my mind

- catholics
- conservative (family values are still important in both cultures)
- very similar humor
- drive like crazy and aggresively ,

The biggest difference is Poles are not descended from Aztecs or any other mesoamerican tribe.

This "biggest difference" makes Poles on average lighter skinned that Mexicans, but the two people are similiar in the ways that really count. Both live their lives with a certain beautiful Catholic style that is unknown amongst dreary puritainical Anglos.

One would imagine that he is going on tales about Poland handed down from his great-grandmother

Not much has changed really - just WWI and WWII, the border shifts, the killing of 3 million of her citizens, Communism, three different Republics - nah, not much difference really.

I think both Poles and Mexicans love America, Americans and everything that has in common with USA.

If you look at sport events with Polish or Mexican athletes, Polish people and Mexican people are similar in the amount of support they give their athletes. They both support their athletes tremendously.
