Saturday, my Mom and I watched a LifeTime movie about an incident in North Carolina. Four boys were out "Clayping", and killed a seven month old baby. The practice involved throwing rocks at Amish buggies and such. The locals called the Amish "Clayps", and thus the name of the practice. My question is, does anyone know where the word "Clayps" originated for Amish people?
I don't know, even though I did a yahoo search on it.
However, to balance out your misfortune at learning of this, compounded by your pathetic judgement when you allowed yourself to be hornswaggled into watching Lifetime TV, study this slang: from[url]http://pinkertons.com/companyinfo/history/pinkerton/history_yeggman.asp[/url]
Don't you feel better already? Now, to continue your recovery, you need to go out with a .480 Ruger and shoot some squirrels. Eat some fried twinkies too, then chase it down with a beer.
