Just When I Think I'm Smmwarrrrt

I rarely read all the way through the A section of the DMN or ST because it's mostly full of world AP stories that don't interest me or I've already seen. But I did look at one story last weekend that began with the sentence above. I felt kind of toopid (as one of my friends calls me) when I ran across a word that I didn't understand. And I'm not talking about "foreigners" (pronounced locally as "fur-nirs")

Expand your mind here.

Thank you for educating me, I have never heard the word "xenophobic." However the sentence still makes me say, "Huh?"

You live in Wise County and you don't know what "xenophobia" means? That is the word that defines this county.

Oooh oooh! I knew that one.
See, we're not the only ones saying to foreigners: "We don't want your kind in our country." And it's not because we are xenophobic; this country is made up of xenos/foreigners. We would just like to be able to keep up with them, and have it be all legal and everything, unkay?
I'm just sayin'

Well, maybe you've never heard of xenophobia because you're stoopid or maybe it's because you think you know everything and are thus oblivious of the concept?? LOL ;)

You need to add "Xenophobe" in your blog banner some way.

Wow. I'm very disappointed that you didn't know that..... I'm mean, really?

Does anybody remember the smell of paper when the teacher would run off a bunch of papers on the Xenograph machine?
