goy (gɔɪ)
n., pl. goy•im (ˈgɔɪ ɪm), goys.

usage: This term is usually used with disparaging intent, implying a mild contempt for the attitudes, traits, and customs of non-Jews. Although it may be used in a neutral, even positive way to refer to a Christian, it almost always connotes a degree of condescension. Usually the context, such as the use of a qualifying adjective, will show the intent of the speaker.

—n. Usually Disparaging.
(a term used to refer to a gentile or non-Jewish person.) -- http://www.thefreedictionary.com/

Idiom: Judge, jury and executioner

If someone is said to be the judge, jury, and executioner, it means they are in charge of every decision made, and they have the power to be rid of whomever they choose.

Drama Queen 

People (mostly girls - but boys play their part) who like to blow everything totally out of proportion because they either:

a) Want to seek attention, or

b) Have some emotional dysfunction and it's their duty to make life harder for everyone around them.

Cuckold

Cuckold historically referred to a husband with an adulterous wife and is still often used with this meaning. In evolutionary biology, the term cuckold is also applied to males who are unwittingly investing parental effort in offspring that are not genetically their own. Cuckold derives from the cuckoo bird, alluding to the alleged habit of the female in changing its mate frequently and authentic (in some species) practice of laying its eggs in other nests within its community. --Wiki
