Q: I’m looking for a two page map of the U.S. that expressed nicknames for ethnic groups in different regions.
A: Sissy sez: “That would be ‘A Nation of Foreigners’ in the 199th Birthday Book. The map shows such groups as Jarheads, Scoovies, and worse; Drawings by Randy Jones represent ethnic-based expressions like ‘Irish confetti’ (bricks) and ‘Mexican Overdrive’ (benzedrine). The writer, if this is writing, was of course P.J. O’Rourke.”
