You're not supposed to say you got "gypped" if like chipotle doesn't give you enough meat in your burrito, for example

On its own, no. Gypsies are an ethnic group, unfortunately their name is frequently slurred though, most often in mocat's example. Gypsies in Europe are treated extremely poorly.

They know that the term "Gypsy" has come to have a negative connotation. They refer to themselves as Romani.

Yeah I learned that on this very blog a few years ago. I had no idea it was a reference to gypsies until then

Less than 15% of Germany’s attack and transport helicopters are air worthy. 

I suppose it’s good that our “ally” Germany is buying off Putin with petroEuro’s while living under the warm comfy protective blanket of $733 billion dollars of US taxpayer paid protection.

In other news, Germany is conducting nation wide terror raids.
