    I see what you did there


    It's always great when someone makes a Polak joke to get all serious tell them your grandma escaped Poland during the war. Makes them feel crappy for making a derogatory joke.

    Re: What was said by the Announcer

    People are a bit sensitive IMO. I grew up in MN in a heavily populated area of Polish people and the term Pollock was used even amongst themselves. We live in such a politically correct world anymore that people take themselves too seriously.

    too soon man, too soon. 32 years and at least half the time I introduce myself I get "Hey there are a lot of jokes about you"


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Quit gophering.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Re: What was said by the Announcer

    Pollock is a fish.

    Polack is the apparently derogatory term.

    Pole is the politically correct term.

    Nobody gives a **** about the fish.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    You should hyphenate this as Wack-a-Pole and copyright it immediate. You can thank me by sharing your royalties.

    I never knew Pollack was a slur, I thought that was just the name for Polish people!

    He should have just said "Hack a honkey" because no one would give a **** if that was said

    His mom does throw cotton balls in the air when he makes shots! They did a timeout break about her.

    Re: What was said by the Announcer

    I only know it's a slur because there's a **** load of polish people in Chicago, and my grandpa had dementia and was kind of not very p.c. near the end of his life.

    Re: What was said by the Announcer

    So my wife is off the boat Polish. She is ready to fire this guy right now. Per her it is the same as that word we don't use for for a certain race. She just dared him to come to Chicago and say Pollack.

    A world without yoga pants and Planter's cheese balls, is a world I no longer want to live in.
