name: WOP
Pronunciation: 'wp
Etymology: Italian dialect 'guappo' swaggerer, tough, from Spanish guapo, probably from Middle French dialect vape, wape weak, insipid, from Latin vappa wine gone flat
Date: 1908
usually disparaging : ITALIAN

I think that can be mixed with W/O Paper. I imagine the first italians hearing WOP
thougth they say them "guappo", that's not a delicacy also for the italians.
(the sequence "without p[aper]" sounds like this italian southern word)
I hope to have add a WOP of wisdom...ooops a Jem of wisdom to this definition
Ciao to all (WOP and not) :-)
