vanishedone commented on the word oofay
Theis is already in the O.E.D. with the meaning thus (19th C.). It's apparently a nautical term, so I can't guarantee it's what the spammer had in mind.

Perhaps we could, however, consider adopting theis in that tricky slot of the impersonal third person pronoun, ie. their/his/her/its = theis.

missanthropist commented on the word oofay
Derisive for 'white person'. Also, 'Ofay'. Related to 'Ooftish': gambling moneys, perhaps. I heard this not many years ago from Samoan friends, so I'm of the impression that it's not dated slang. Appears around 1900.
