Thread Name: Epithet for English Immigrants in Song?
Subject: RE: Epithet for English Immigrants in Song?
A term used by my Irish catholic side of the family in Rhode Island when addressing or talking about my 1st generation English "Dod, like in Cod, grandfather who was raised in Fall River/New Bedford, on the MA/RI border. In humorous intent it was used as " You blooming Jicky/Jickie when Dod was in the room." --- In less polite settings it was "bloody jicky/jickie". This is W.W.2 generation talking about the W.W. 1 generation. And I heard it from the 1950-1990's till the WW 2 folks passed on.
