    In the NE that would be a saltine cracker, or just saltine. As you move south and to the midwest you often hear them referred to as soda crackers.

    Ya---where I was going with cracker was an insult aimed at someone of my pigment

    I had to look it up a couple years ago---thought---How could cracker be a bad thing?
    Goes good with cheese..peanut butter ---deli meats.... :)

    Beaners for someone from Boston is nice. I consider them all A S S holes and they just keep proving it over and over.

    You know a lot of Bostonians do you?

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Bostonians:

    • Good shoes when they still were "Made in USA".
    • Lucky to have easy access to lobster, clams and fresh fish.
    • Perhaps the worst drivers in North America north of the Rio Grande.
    • Unappreciative inheritors of noble history, despite chest thumping yahooism.
    • Hugely sucking sports fans and teams.
    • Hey, how about this year's Red Sox!!!!!

    When I was in the AF, my best friend was from Billerica. That guy was nuts.

    I’m rooting for the Leafs. I have nothing in particular against the Bruins but I just hate the Patriots that much. The overflow hatred is for the Bruins. Red Sox not so much. The Junior Circuit barely qualifies as baseball so I don’t care about them. ;)

    Yes I do. Spent that last 8 years working for a company out of Boston and putting up with a bunch of morons.

    You know I am, Comic.

    As much as I love baseball, I really don’t watch any AL ball except playoffs. It’s the NASCAR of baseball.

    Nobody has answered your Beaner question. Down here, it's a derogatory reference to Mexicans, or any Latin American. Because they pick beans, I guess.

  • BushartBushart Senior Member Posts: 3,041 Senior Member

    oh---I try not to make fun of other races

    Only Canadians with Scottish/Irish roots :)

  • BuffcoBuffco Senior Member Posts: 10,582 Senior Member

    It's ok. You can still make fun of Americans, white males, and southern rednecks. That's still considered PC.

  • breamfisherbreamfisher Senior Member Posts: 4,778 Senior Member

    It's because they eat beans.

    Buffco must be a next level of wokeness. He doesn't even know the stereotype.

  • BuffcoBuffco Senior Member Posts: 10,582 Senior Member

    Man I never put that together. All these years I've been calling calling them that and I didn't even get the reference.

  • BushartBushart Senior Member Posts: 3,041 Senior Member

    You Younguns wish to define what "Woke" means today??

    Used to mean...."I woke at 5 am to spank some trouts"

      :)

    Made, if I'm not mistaken, right here in Lewiston, Maine back when we had a corner on the high-end men's shoe production. As far as I know, the only shoes now made here are some hand-sewn Allen Edmonds numbers. There are still stories floating among older families of Papa bringing home a pair of shoes or two at night to finish off for an extra fifty cents or so the next payday.

    Redneck is not a race, it is a choice.
