I don't know how I arrived at that title. I was thinking about our recent take on the word SCHMUCK. Other Yiddish words I recall from childhood came to mind. They seem so obscure now, probably because no one uses them anymore. You have to agree that some of the expressions and words just defy rational or literal translation and are kind of humorous. The word on my mind now is, SCHMAGEGGY - which I think is in the same league as SCHMUCK - but less offensive. If this subject matter is boring, I promise this will be the last one. Everything seems to have a negative connotation and had to do with the KINDA being around.Laurie
I am completely ignorant about Yiddish words. I hear them on TV all the time as politicians and commentators seem to use them occasionally.Thanks for posting...
They seem so obscure now, probably because no one uses them anymore.... The word on my mind now is, SCHMAGEGGYI still use that wonderful word! So....speak for yourself. ;-)sheilap.s. I have a bunch of websites for Yiddish, if you'd like me to email them to you.
