Anatomically speaking, i think you have a problem:p

Eskimo - PC minefield *grimaces*

Yupik or Inupiat Eskimo in Alaska is good, but don't mention the word in Greenland, I gather.

no i dont have dial up, I was on hukd and in mid-conversation when someone asked me the above question, it was quicker to ask here than load up a new page with google,

you obviously didnt know the answer and as usual were going through peoples threads hoping someone would pay you some attention if you made a snide comment. well done you got it!

mods any chance we can set up a hukd nursery and keep the spoilt kids in there?

How long does it take you to load up a new page? Don't you have "tabs"?

I am intrigued now. :thinking:

is this a joke?

u lot should watch QI more it tells u everything

our understanding is that the word "eskimo" is regarded as pejorative in Canada, but that "Inuit" isn't a catch-all alternative; the Inuit live in northern Canada and parts of Greenland, the Kalaallit in Greenland, the Inuvialuit in Canada, and the Inupiat, Yupiget, Yuplit and Alutiit in Alaska.
