My mother in law calls me the "Nazi prick". She's never said it without a smile. Coon-ass can be worn with pride. Never seen a person from Wisconsin get mad about being called a "cheese head". Plenty of terms for Italian, Irish, Polish, etc. Be comfortable in your own skin, and you can laugh with the joke. Don't be quick to take offense, the closer your friends, the more they don't pull punches.Need to extend that to west of N'awlins, you missin a lot of Us.
