The guido and guidette are just the complete distillation, the everclear if you will, of the rest of the New York metropolitan area.
I can't believe you are even trying to pull this. The guido is the Georgi vodka of NYC. They imitate the best, do a horrible job, and in turn create a product that is worthless and should be thrown into the garbage. Not to mention it emanates cheap.
This isn't to say I approve of Manhattan's banker boys. They are complete douchebags in their own regard for the most part.
As are the hipsters.
But neither of these scream Guido-pathetic like stereotypical Jersey/Staten Island/Long Island guidos. They have something going for them. They aren't the laughingstock of their geographic area. They are not a complete farce.
