Stereotypical Physical Traits by Profession
 
Just saw in another thread.

"hairy arsed builder"

Speaking as someone in the construction industry I'm not aware of a higher density of hair follicles per square centimeter of arse skin than the general population.

"tight arsed" accountant
"tough like a jockey's bollocks"

Only for proper muck and bullets guys.

Wouldn't call many of our consultancy lot 'hairy arsed'. Which is a shame because they're often more fun.

The Moneysupermarket ad is probably a good example of stereotypes (hairy overweight builders and balding, glass wearing businessmen)
