Is a Jaw Harp the politically correct term for a Jew's Harp? I think Jew's Harp is an accepted term in the music world. A friend mentioned on the Red Hot Chile Pepper's new comp CD they manage to call it Juice Harp, ha ha ha.

Hey Dan. Jaw harp was what Levi called it. I thought Jew's harp as well, but went with what he said.

Wiki says it can both ways:'s_harp

Yeah, I guess saying or typing "Jew's harp" just feels wrong to my PC brain. And the term "Jaw Harp" has been around for quite some time; it's not like it was just invented in the past few years in response to an ADL campaign.

Having looked at the Wikipedia page, though, now I'm gonna have to start calling it a marranzano pancake!
