You probably think I'm anti American,
what gave you that idea?? lol
Why on earth is a Pole flattered when he is mistaken to be an Irish???
He is a she, and its because my last name is Irish (husbands last name)
as his father was Irish.
and his name is a common last name, as I have been asked if I know certain
families who came from their town and so I have to offer that this is my
married last name and not maiden and that I am all Polish.
LOL....Patrycja.........is USA born and bred L...lol
yes, I am 2nd generation for USA.
The ultimate compliment.........
Frank, somehow, I knew that you were going to say that :)
Polish jokes exploded in popularity. By the 1980s, many kids repeating such jokes though “Polack” was another word for “moron” rather than someone from an actual country
Fisz, this is soooooo true. this was what I was referring to. and my last name
was the key to the target. kids at school , everytime my last name was
pronounced for attendance, I would hear crap. eventually I started to ignore
then I joined in, "cant beat emm join emm so to speak" and so thus, those who
were calling me Pollack, or do you know how to Ski?
and growing up, I was pretty pissed off about it, because it was constant, and
that is why I say, even us 2nd and third generations had to endure the
jokes, and after hearing it for so long , its time to snap!
so my logic to this was hey, hows it going ya yeller belly varmit! or hill billy hick
once I started picking on their nationality, it tapered down.
oh and my last one " I might be pollack, but least I have all my teeth."
what were ya chewin on , cow turds you said? oh is that why your breath
smells like Sh*t . <~that was my later years comebacks as I wasnt allowed to
swear when I was real young lol.
anyway, I didnt want to do it, but it was the only solution to it.
my name was then used more "patricia" instead of Pollack.
