It's the American way to wallow in self-pity. And it defuses Stanford band attempts at sarcasm.

Don't like that? How about Inerrant Papists? Or Bloody Martyrs? Fish-eaters is a nice alternative to Mackeral Snappers, which probably doesn't mean much to most non-Catholics today. Or the Fighting Dolours (of the BVM.)
