Aggie, W.VA., Polish, Irish, Newfie, Finnish, Scottish, Norse vs Swedes
and vice versa: interchangeable for the most part. Mostly they they
are just a vehicle for a dummy joke or something funny based on a
supposed ethnic characteristic. Personally, I enjoy them if they are
funny and really don"t take them as slurs. I DO NOT enjoy supposed
jokes qwhich are merely ecuses for poor taste slurs.
