nmrsnr: BronyMedic: So you want an Ace of Spades?It's the only card I need
brug: I grew up in the South and I don't think I have EVER heard this particular epithet.Anyone else?/yes, of course I'm white
James F. Campbell: Golly, sure are a lot of uninformed and easily misled people in this thread./And I bet they still won't learn anything.
voodoohotdog: Not a single gag about chains on the tires in winter?Sorry. I'll go now.
olddinosaur: The joke's on the thin--skinned, "spade" is not a derogatory term.It is a cool--cat term from the beatnik era, when blacks and whites socialized to some degree---unlike now, when most blacks refuse to socialize with whites.We seem to have gone downhill.
Nick Nostril: Dead honkey.
TheEdibleSnuggie: When you say 'spade' this is what most people think of:[www.wpclipart.com image 226x290]or[www.gardeningoncloud9.com image 400x400]I mean FFS, I'm black and I think this is being RIDICULOUSLY overblown per the usual. Thanks Jalopshiat!
LaughingRadish: b0rg9: I think the granddaddy of inconvenient car names was the Chevy Nova.Which, in Mexico, translates to "is not" or "no go" or something. Whatever -- not good for a car."va" == "it goes". Prefix "no" and you have the opposite. "no va" == "it doesn't go". However, the word "nova" itself is well-known in Spanish-speaking countries. This confusion never happened.
Sgt.Zim: Wow ... filterpwned on my own dig at myself. We can't nag any longer, eh?Guess we'll get used to it.
Rufus Lee King: great_tigers: Will it be capable of extremely fast speeds but for 90 percent of the time drive very slowly?Why, yes....and it deliberately slows to a crawl at all the crosswalks.
YouPeopleAreCrazy: Unfortunately, words still do have meanings. As a species, we haven't fully progressed beyond that yet.
liverpoolumd: And everyone from the 19th century was SHOCKED...Oh wait.Christ people, lets MOOOOOVE ONNNNNN already
olddinosaur: unlike now, when most blacks refuse to socialize with whites.
Rufus Lee King: "Ace of spades...""Ace of spades...""Ace of spades..."[i1.ytimg.com image 320x180]
Psycoholic_Slag: voodoohotdog: Not a single gag about chains on the tires in winter?Sorry. I'll go now.They don't perform well in cold weather AT ALL. And don't even think about getting them wet./heh, this is fun.
rickycal78: Uh huh, and do Dago, Wop, Kike, Mick, Spic, etc have other meanings besides their derogatory ones? Maybe meanings that existed before they were used as derogatory names for various ethnic groups? No? Fark off then.
Yanks_RSJ: Okay, now tell me the alternate meaning for any of those words that isn't offensive.
Oneofthesedays: But those aren't homonyms...
Bob The Nob: [i45.photobucket.com image 300x225]approves
YouPeopleAreCrazy: Hell yes 'spade' also means a type of shovel. But there is a large group of people, both black and white, where it still means something else.
John Buck 41: Wow, I guess some of you smartass Farkers (with the help of Snopes) sure showed me. Sorry I ever brought it up.Not as sorry as some loser who has Snopes as his homepage, though.
clowncar on fire: [www.csojapan.com image 640x480]Meet theToyota Alphard. Dumb name but feels like silk on the highway- if I can figure out how to get it US spec'd, my father-in-law has one and is ready to throw it my way for the cost of shipping.
Rodeodoc: Well, you haven't. The majority of us have.
Jument: They why isn't anyone going after playing cards and gardening equipment?
