 Eddie Cantor covered this, when he discussed the good-natured fun the 
immigrants in NYC had when they wrote silly songs about each other (and 
themselves) .  If you truly HATE someone, you do not write vaudeville songs 
about quaint accents and sauerkraut and Levinsky's wedding, etc - people 
will just laugh, not hate.   To truly hate, you must ignore them and then 
deny them admission to your society.
