  •  "Masshole"??? (0+ / 0-)

    Interesting... a sarcastic term of endearment, I'm guessing.

    •  It is so (0+ / 0-)

      And would you believe it even has its on wikipedia article?

      It started off with northern New Englanders angry about the poor driving habits of the throngs of Massholes coming north each summer (in Vermont, the equally disparaging "Flatlanders" is also used). But it has been coöpted by some in Massachusetts for self reference, as the official term of "Bay Stater" is too clunky.
