In the news a Grey Whale was spotted off the coast of Israel in the Mediterranean where they have never been previously cited. Perhaps this is the recently unemployed Stalinist Galloway on his way to promote himself with endless photo ops in Gaza. Has anyone seen Curious George and this Grey Whale in the same place.
Another headline proclaims German people asking themselves if they are the Schmucks of Europe for bailing out Greece. The word Schmuck is Yiddish and not likely to be used by Germans. Then again ebonics sometimes crosses over into the larger culture in America. The words dis and homey are understood by many due to their usage in popular culture or the ordinary life experiences of people. Perhaps the Editrix will enlighten us on if that term is used. I am surprised how non-Jewish lawyers not even born in NYC grasp the local jargon that is sprinkled with Yiddish, Spanglish, Ebonics, West Indian, Italian and all types of trade lingo. A person asked me if I went to Oklahoma University because of a pennant in my office. I told her think Borscht Belt and what the letters OU means to Jews in NYC. Everyone laughed including
the lawyer who realized OU stands for Orthodox Union and is a local symbol of that is placed on foods permissible for Jews to eat.
Does a photo of a woman playing softball infer she is a lesbian???? This issue with the Supreme Court nominee is rather strange. The applicant may or may not be a lesbian but playing softball
does not point anywhere. This is the lamest stereotype of them all. I have known many lesbians and some are indeed masculine and others are not. They have varied interests and are unremarkable in many respects holding regular jobs and leading ordinary lives. We know for a fact that some female athletes are gay, but others are not. Perhaps the next story will have her repairing office equipment therefore...... some of us have too much free time.
