    Unless i read this wrong the gypsies are good right?Why the hate?
    "Gypsies", or the "Roma" as they prefer to be called, are an ethnic group which originated in India (their language - Romany - is directly descended from Sanskrit) which for unknown reasons took to a wandering life-style in the late middle ages. Eventually they reached Europe and became part of the ethnic mix of many countries, contributing not a little in areas such a music and the arts.

    Because they were strangers to many of the people they moved among, strong prejudices grew up, and indeed continue to this day. Although they were indisputably "Aryan" according to the Nazi racial typology, they were pursued relentlessly.

    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    I read somewhere that Gypsies hold a divine right to steal because just before the crucifixion a Gypsy stole one of the nails (which is why clasically the crucifixion is shown with only three nails). As a reward they are forgiven for the sin of stealing.



    More of them should really have moved into PR and advertising than hitherto have done.

    My girlfriend is quarter gypsy, which is why I make her empty her pockets before leaving my house. Also I'm careful not to upset her in case she puts a curse on me.

    Just because she's one and a half foot tall and lives in a caravan, doesn't mean that you should call her a quarter gypsy
