OK, I'm done with ignoring the hanger-on zombies

I've taken to pointing and laughing, then yelling "haha, your [expletive] lost!" when I see the houses with the x-tra large posters with the losers name on them.

Also, in the DD covfefe line this morning I had a "women for Rump" (and two other stickers) person in front of me. I yelled loudly "haha, your guy lost!".

I'm done with ignoring them. Yes, I don't really care that they're pathetically displaying loser items in public (it's kind of funny), but I do think they should know that many people consider them poor sport losers.

1. Years ago comedian Bill Engvall had a bit where he advocated using signs when people did stupid


Things. He’d end the bit with “here’s your sign!”
So we need signs.....maybe even a light up sign on our cars that says, “He’s a LOSER!”

Here’s your sign, chumps! He LOST. Get over it.

2. Are you aware that the term "zipper head"

Is an ethnic slur against Asians?

3. Never heard of this. We used it as a term in the 70's to describe a "Frankenstein-like" person

I don't even get the linkage? Can you provide a reference?

4. Here's definition

Zipperhead
Race: Asians
Coined by US soldiers during Korean War. Also used in the film Full Metal Jacket. MULTIPLE reasons have been submitted:
http://www.racialslurs.net/slur/zipperhead
1) If Asians were shot in the head with high-powered weapons, their heads would split as if you unzipped them

2) Vietnam War slang for "Zero Intelligence Potential" (IE: just kill them, no reason to interrorgate them)

3) Many times the Asians would be run over by military Jeeps, which left tire tracks on them that resembled zippers.

4) Asians tend to part their hair down the middle, leaving a zipper-like strip.

5) I'm not sure if the military used body bags to transfer dead enemy soldiers, but theres a possibly reference to the zipper on said bag.

6) WWII Japanese pilots wore leather helmets with zippers down the middle

6. I found the reddit thread

Seems most people in the reddit thread weren't aware of said usage either (before most of our times), but I edited my title anyway.

Glad it’s not used so much anymore.

5. Been in MO since before the election

Shocking # of support signs all around.
Since the Nov 7 election call, I DO point and laugh, and fly the bird at the signs still up.

Glad to know I am not the only one. Hehe

I don't agitate however. Too many gun carriers here! Did you see story from rustygurl? She was accosted by an elderly neighbor on her own property. Serious illness these MAGAts have.
