I grew up in metro N.Y. What do you think?
Ha-Ha....ever been called an "Over-Homer"? We call the NB crowd here that because every sentence they start is like. "Well, over home we......."
When my son was born, I gave him 6 names. Why? Because virtually everyone who goes to school has some horrible play on names.
I have a niece. I used to baby sit her. So one day, she confided that the kids at school had ridiculed her name. I asked what they called her. She wouldn't tell me. I promised not to laugh, so she told me: Poop Troop I immediately went into gales of laughter. It was a play on a television program at the time.
Yes I’ve heard that name. Have a close friend who lives in the northern part of NB.
Growing up in SC, the rednecks used to call us Catholics "mackerel snappers" because we ate fish on Fridays during Lent.
Yes , just last year a young Africa American called me the forbidden word during an heated dispute and I am a redhead white guy . I laughed about it after it was over and still laugh about it now when I am reminded of it .
And does red headed stepchild count ?
PERFECT.... rotflmao... thanks!
I have been called a limey hundreds of times by other folks of English heritage.
I have never understood "Limey" as an insult. "Yeah, you're not gonna get scurvy, you... you... limey prat!"
Friend of mine used to call me the Mick. He was Irish, too.
Yes, on St. Paddy's Day we marched into an Irish Pub, and they announced "here come the Scotties". And yes they bought our Beer. tom.
Of course. Tons of names tons of times. 99% of the time I just let it roll off my back. No big deal.
Im glad to hear that.
Kinda depends on the context. In some circles it’s good natured ribbing; in others it’ll start an SP response level fight.
I was training martial arts in Ocala, FL several years ago and during an exchange of techniques, I smacked the guy with a front leg kick. It caught him off guard and he asked me what it was; I said "teep" and continued sparring. I noted that he was getting a little more aggressive and I leg kicked him again--I grinned, nodded and said "teep". This guy came at me with everything he had and I asked him what his problem was. He told me that I called him a "teep" and he was gonna kick my ass. I told him that the technique was called "teep" and after he calmed down, he shook my hand and left.
Apparently in his locale (the backwoods in central Florida) teep is short for TPR (teeper) which means Trailer Park Redneck.
We used to drive through East Palo Alto to get to the junkyards (back when I was a teenage gear head). With the windows down we'd be regaled by the taunts of 'white boy' and 'cracker' and I don't remember ever really caring. Call it white privilege, but it's really just that thick skin that you develop; like a duck, just let it roll off your back (and you cross your fingers that the car doesn't break down there).
Does redneck count?
