One time he told a joke where he said something about finding a nigger in a woodshed. Does anyone know what he was referring to or has anyone heard of this joke before?

I laughed because it sounded funny. But I did not quite fully comprehend it 100%.

It is nigger in the wookshed.

Meaning that the person they are talking about has a little bit of nigger in them or is not what they claim to be IE mexican, indian or spanish.

Oh ok. Thanks for clearing that up. Though I am sure that is an old joke.

I have always heard "nigger in the wood pile" is used to mean that a male employee or slave was working outside in a wood pile or something and came in to have sex with the lady of the house when the man went away....She got pregnant and has a black child...a black piece of wood mixed in with the white pieces in the genes.

It's a nigger in the woodpile. It means that when you are doing something well and you have one individual that fucks it up (the lame is the nigger in the woodpile), or if everyone's trying to be incognito about something and someone blabs (the snitch is the nigger in the woodpile). Basically if everyone is on one page and one person involved with them fucks it up they are the proverbial nigger in the woodpile!

I did some research on the Internet......David Cameron was dragged into a race row last night after one of his frontbenchers made an unfortunate remark during a House of Lords debate. Lord Dixon-Smith, the Tory spokesman for communities and local government, referred to concerns about government housing legislation as the “nigger in the woodpile”.......The phrase described fugitive slaves who hid in piles of firewood as they fled persecution in the American Deep South in the mid-19th century.

I always understood the phrase "nigger in the woodpile" to mean that a person had some relatively small amount of nigger ancestry that they did not acknowledge.

Urban dictionary (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Nigger%20in%20the%20wood%20pile) has an interesting explanation.

That makes sense. Niggers usually fuck things up.

This was always my understanding of the term. Could also be used the same as rotten apple spoiling the whole barrel full.

Welp, I found a new phrase for when something feels suspicious!

A lady on a yahoo thread wrote that when she was a young girl, her grandmother would brush her hair every night. When ever she would come across a snarl, the grandmother would call it a nigger in the wood pile.It seems to me anything that's not right, or causes difficulties to humans, could be considered a nigger in the wood pile.
