A horribly stereotyped place with a nice enviroment and usually rich people.
Myth 1: Everyone of Mercer Island r stuck-up:
The truth: Yeah so sum of us r rich; Just cuz sumone's rich doesn't mean they can't be nice people!
Myth 2: Mercer Island hates Bellevue:
The truth: CUMMON! Y HATE BELLEVUE? HECK I LUV BELLEVUE! THE MALL'S IN BELLEVUE! Y shuld we compare ourselves? We prefer 2 spend time doing more productive things.
Myth 3: Mercer Island people r RICH:
The truth: Uh huh...so yeah we aren't poor but we aren't all, omigosh i like TOTALLY hafta have this... I don't go 2 like the expensive stores. Not even expensive grocery stores. Shop at Fred Meyer's so wut?
Myth 4:Islanders won't support local businesses.
The truth: EXCUSE ME? We have fundraisers and donate A LOT! We really care about our community and enviroment. It's not like we're gonna IGNORE IT!
Myth 5: Islanders r naive and stupid.
The truth: Lyke YA RITE! I'm in 9th grade math and I'm a 6th grader! IS THAT A PROBLEM? DO I NEEDA REPEAT MISELF? There are dum people as well as smart!
Myth 6: Islanders think they're better than every1 else.
The truth: *yawn* PUHLEASE! Y can't people accept that we're normal...well sure, again we aren't poor...but u get the point.

Stereotyping person 1: Mercer Island is a generic and gross suburb similar to the likes of Factoria.
Stereotyping person 2: Their a large population of extremely spoiled, naive, rich, pussy guys as well as (usually) hot, extremely spoiled, naive, rich, bitchy, stuck-up girls.
Stereotyping person 3: Island next to Seattle full of rich mother fuckers who think they're better than everyone else. Their football team sucks.
Stereotyping person 4: they grow depressed and eventually kill themselves...i would like mercer island if everyone stopped being stupid and pretending like they're cool because they do shit all the time.
Stereotyping person 5:oThe biggest groupl of faggots in the world. Act tough upfront when they are bunch of pussy ass white boyz.

Pretty much the greatest place on earth.
I think Bellevue is jealous of Mercer Island.
Whatever. Money = Happiness.
Mercer Island = Happiness
A beautiful scenic island located in the center of Lake Washington, full of friendly, but wealthy people who own your daddies business. Don't get too jealous.
Oh shit, I wish I lived on Mercer Island so I wouldn't have to eat CORNBREAD again tonight!
Although people from Mercer Island, mainly teenagers, are known as stuck up, rich, white people most are not. In fact they are some of the nicest people I have ever met and they get a great education. Although the football team sucks, they pwn everyone at every other sport, except baseball and basketball. state champs in Golf, Swimming, Water Polo (mens and womens), lacrosse (mens and womens), and runner up in gymnastics. who can have 6 champion teams in one year, not bellevue. Also, there are many great bands that are from Mercer Island like Oceans in Oblivion, Left at the Castle, Left Lane, Mercury and used to be I-90. One more thing, not everybody is rich.
Mercer Island pwns Bellevue.
A very stereotyped place with a lot of rich people, but a lot of them are still really nice. Not all who live on Mercer Island are rich and not all are spoiled.
Crazy Woman: Ykno mercer island sux!
Crazy Woman: They're all weird stuk-up rich people!
Me: Wut? I-
Crazy Woman: They selfish br-
Me: LISTEN 2 ME WOMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mercer Island is about 13 miles around and wedged in the lake in between the Seattle area and the Bellevue area. Most notoriously known for its monetary stature, a very large portion of the island it very middle class, but has many wealthy families as well. The high school (MIHS) has a deep rivalry against Bellevue, and each have their own bragging rights. Where Mercer Island boasts over 95% over of their graduating student going onto college, superior academic standards and an average of 3-7 state titles per year, Bellevue has a dynasty football team and.... the pancake corral which they feel compelled to yell at the Islanders during games for lack of a better phrase.
Bellevue: Pancake Corral!!
Mercer Island: ?
An island in proximity to Seattle, Bellevue, and many other Western Washington cities. While rumored to be a stuck-up, rich community, it actually is filled with nice, oftentimes middle-class families. It just goes to show that stereotypes are not always accurate. In fact, more often than not, they are far from it.
And football teams aren't the sole factor in determining a school's greatness. For those of you who do not know.
Insert name of Generic Ignorant person here: LULZ M-EYE SUKKS! MERCER ISLAND IZ FO RICHH FAGBAGZ!
Me: ...Way to stereotype.
