  • Re: The wall of fame ,the wall of shame

    From Wikipedia:

    "Wop is an English pejorative ethnic slur for a person of Italian descent. It is derived from the Neapolitan word "guappo", meaning a person who flaunts an overbearingly cocky and swaggering attitude."

    Keep in mind it is from Wikipedia so it may not be true!

      Funny in the 50s ,Back in the boston area. it was Italian and Irish [I'm a thick Mick,as You all found out ]. OHH The wonderful smells of cooking those sauses. Then "Manga manga",
      feeding us all till we couldn"t move. Then We'd watch them play Bocci on the dirt road out front. Once in a while we'd square off and have henerdous rock fights " ouch".
      Did any of You older Guys have rock fights when You we're Kids?

          I'm sure you recall the rivalry between "Eastie" and "Southie"..Irish vs Italian.
          What sucked for me is I'm both, with a Scandinavian paternal namesake.

          I grew up with my Italian gramma putting a heaping plate in front of me reciting "Mange, Mange...VITA!". I'd eat so much it hurt my stomache, pleading with her to let me stop along the way.

          Then some sundays we'd go to my Irish "Nana's" for boiled dinner, which I preferred because it didn't hurt my stomache so much not being forced to eat ten lbs of pasta.

          I used to joke that I was a "McWop".

                LOL he was a licensed plumber and the city did signoff on it. The inspector was in shock when he came in and looked it over after we cut the flooring up. I don't think he ever thought it was gonna be seen by anyone
                I said "Did you inspect this water park ride?"
