Even if the descriptions are quite funny, it seems to me that all of them are negative. Maybe the writer has never sympathized with any of the (apparently many) foreigners he has known. It has to be hard to go to China and discover that, whatever your attitude, feelings, weaknesses, reasons or curiosity level may be, the way you behave will be just wrong. Even the eagerness to learn about the Chinese and the Chinese culture, or the joy of knowing a new country, or trying to adapt to the new environment are depicted as bad, too much, not enough. Stereotypes can be positive too. Just tell me how to be a "normal", "acceptable" foreigner.
