3 - Here in Brazil, you can't touch the food with your hands. In McDonald's, hamburger is eaten inside a napkin. Every table of bar, restaurant or snack bar have a distributor of napkin and toothpick. But those napkins are almost plastic, nothing smooth or nice. The goal isn't to clean your hands or mouth but is to pick the food with hands without leave paper food in hands.

4 - Here in Brazil everything is gay (or 'fagot'). Drink tea: is gay. Ask a coke zero: is gay. Play volleyball: is gay. Drink wine: is gay. Don't like soccer: is gay. Be french: is gay. Be gaúcho: is gay. Be mineiro: is gay. Pay attention how to dress: is gay. Don't speak that something is gay: also is gay.

I will do some observations with my opinion.
It's just my opinion. Brazil is a very large country and because this some things vary from region to region.

3 - I agree in parts. It isn't very cool to touch the food in Brazil, but we there are some foods that some brazilians eat with hands. It isn't strange to eat launch or pizza with hands, for exemple. I think the napkin's part is right.

4 - It's true. haha
gaúcho is how the people call those who lives in south.
mineiro is how the people call those who lives in the state of Minas Gerais.

3 - Aqui no Brasil, não se pode tocar a comida com as mãos. No MacDonalds, hamburger se come dentro de um guardanapo. Toda mesa de bar, restaurante ou lanchonete tem um distribuidor de guardanapos e de palitos. Mas esses guardanapos são quase de plastico, nada de suave ou agradável. O objetivo não é de limpar suas mãos ou sua boca mas é de pegar a comida com as mãos sem deixar papel nem na comida nem nas mãos.

4 - Aqui no Brasil todo é gay (ou ‘viado’). Beber chá: e gay. Pedir um coca zero: é gay. Jogar vólei: é gay. Beber vinho: é gay. Não gostar de futebol: é gay. Ser francês: é gay, ser gaúcho: gay, ser mineiro: gay. Prestar atenção em como se vestir: é gay. Não falar que algo e gay : também é gay.
