Of all the “urban” names that we (and that includes everybody) make fun of, this has to be my favorite to date. (Open post to see.)
It actually reminds me of an old joke. (I will risk everyone rolling their eyes because it’s “old” and everyone already heard it. I’m gonna post it anyway.)
St. Petersburg teen sentenced to prison after pleading guilty to attempted murder
A 16-year-old boy arrested nearly three years ago on charges that he shot at another boy and committed a robbery was sentenced Monday to eight years in prison.
Le’Genius Wisdom Williams of St. Petersburg, who was 13 then, pleaded guilty to shooting…
ht/ just the tip
Okay, now the old joke.
Hippie Critic told this to me decades ago.
— Sophie knew it was time to put her husband Irving in the home. He had all sorts of problems, including, among other things, impotence.
But Irving was Jewish, and there was no room at the Jewish home. So Sophie had to put him in the secular home until there was a vacancy.
2 months later there was an opening, and Sophie called Irving to tell him to pack his bags.
Irving said, “I don’t know. I kind of like it here. I got to know a bunch of the guys and maybe I’ll stay.
They’re funny, in a corny way. For instance, they give everyone nicknames, and the nicknames are the opposite. Like, the fat guy, they call him ‘Slim.’
There’s a short guy they call ‘Stretch,’ and there’s a tall guy they call ‘Shorty.”
“Did they give you a nickname?,” Sophie asked?
“Yeah,” said Irving, “and they must have heard about my problem because they call me ‘Irving the Fuckin’ Jew.”
