 I can't swim but I love being in the water. My ex husband can swin and so can my cousins. I don't remember which ones, though. I was never taught, but did try to teach myself so I certainly wouldn't drown.

Umm that's not funny, but I think this stereotype is b/c everyones heard it. It's like saying, "Asian people can't drive."
