You know how you often say completely wrong things that show how ignorant you are (e.g., pretending like you know Arabic), that presumably you heard on the internet or some other unreputable source? Well, this is but one more example.

Arabic for slave = abd, http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/%D8%B9%D8%A8%D8%AF
