National Lampoon's Vacation is probably one of the most widely seen and well-known films. If you havent seen the series, I definitely recommend watching because they are hilarious. Through each movie the Grizwold's take a family vacation and are put into all kinds of crazy scenarios and hilarious situations, especially with their white trash counsin -- cousin Eddie. In the original, the trip to Wally World, they encounter a distant cousin living in the middle of nowhere Kansas. They are the classic depiction of what is known as the "white trash" stereotype. Here at cousin Eddie's house, they are introduced to the family who continue to "pop" kids out and refer to them as a "liter." Eddie is drinking beers, wearing his "wifebeater" tanktop, while the kids have an ant farm outback they show off. The cousins daughter is chatting out back with the Grizwold's daughter saying that shes already french kissing and that "daddy says" shes the best at it. Even, their meal of choice is the hamburger helper :) The family definitely embodies Price's theory of the the "white trash" family being racist and filthy. Here's a clip of the "best of cousin eddie."
