Pardon for my ignorance but..... WHAT THE FUCK IS WOPS????

WOP:

NOUN: Offensive Slang Used as a disparaging term for a person of Italian birth or descent.

ETYMOLOGY: Italian dialectal guappo, thug, from Spanish guapo, handsome, dashing, braggart, bully, from French dialectal wape, rogue, from Latin vappa, flat wine, scoundrel.

The "traditional" story is that during the period of high Italian immigration to the US, those without immigration papers were labeled "WOP, " or WithOut Papers.

You'd think one of the Italians could've answered this...

I guess that I would be a WOP, 'cos part of my ancestry is Soanish and I'm guapo, plus I got no documents, so I fit the WOP descrption perfectly :D
