Thread Name: How Many BHOYS/GHIRLS
Subject: RE: How Many BHOYS/GHIRLS
Well, I feel kinda stupid, which is a feeling I get rather often nowadays. I thought "Bhoy" and "Ghirl" were just somebody trying to be cute about asking how many malesd and how many females there were at Mudcat, one of a string of "How Many Mudcatters..." threads. But here I see it has something to do with football and ethnic bigotry.

Could somebody explain it to this poor, innocent, uncosmopolitan soul from California? Wuzza "bhoy"? Wuzza "ghirl"?
