I'm linking to the Freeper thread rather than directly to the story in The Atlantic because the Freeper comments are more edifying.

You wish, you old poove.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

I know that but Abdul always refers to himself as a "horrid old poove."

Looked it up.

not a poove in the carload.

BTW, they refer to it as "disparaging". Certainly less so than "queer", no? I had thought that it was sort of vaguely playful and not disparaging.

Then again "queer" has been co-opted so it is more acceptable I guess.

I recall Dick Gregory's remark about his book Nigger. He supposedly told his mom that if she heard the word in the future it was because people were talking about his book.
