I can't do "Jewish English" neither, but since I know a bisseleh of Yiddish it's really very interesting to follow it ...

Famous Yiddish Curse phrase: "You should grow like an onion - with your head in the ground and your feat in the air."

Here's one with an unknown origin: "May all your teeth fall out the day before Thanksgiving."

@Ragman,
I always heard it as: may all your teeth fall out but one. Then may you have a toothache!

Oy, a plotz is what you do on the ice. Can hurt your toukhes.

Aside from the occasional comment and schmooze, I'd say that this thread has run its course, more or less, give or take. Maybe yes, maybe no.

msolga, Don't be such a noodge.

Roberta, you went to quite a bit of trouble to explain "noodge" to me once, I recall. But damned if I can remember now! Confused

Anyway, I'll do my best ....... Wink

I'm stuck for a Hebonically appropriate answer, Deb. (See what I mean? Hopeless.)

But hopefully someone blessed with "the gift" will appear & respond before too long! Smile

A friend took me to the Second Avenue Deli tonight. (Very good kosher deli in NYC.)

She ordered corned beef on whole wheat!!! Shocked Shocked

I was so aghast that I made a face and a noise. Rude. Oy. Now I'm plotzing from embarrassment all over my apartment. What a mess.

BTW, she switched to rye. She said she didn't like rye bread because of the pepper. What pepper??? Rolling Eyes She's from the midwest, but she's been in NY for many years. Where do you get pepper in rye bread? Who puts corned beef on whole wheat?

Still I was rude. Now I'm Embarrassed Embarrassed Embarrassed

Shame on me.

@Roberta,
You had a voice to be rude with?

You're out and about with friends?

@dlowan,
I bet she meant the caraway seeds in rye (frankly, I can't get past 'em, either).

Yay you've got a voice! Smile
