TRUE STORY, not about ///M3, though.

We had a little "diversity training" class at work, a few years ago. To get the class thinking, the black female instructor asked for some suggestions on potentially offensive terms.

Someone thoughtfully suggested the phrase "...Jewed 'em down on the price".

In response, a rather simple looking fellow leaned back, stroked his several chins, and mused, "hmmmmmm... ya mean lahk thet Saint Jude HoTSpituhl? Huh... I never knowed that wuz offensive."

I guess you just never know...
