It's hard to get a good bagel in Boston. Only 2-3 places get it.

Toronto?

 

There are plenty places in the right areas. Are you planning a visit?

Just returned from a few days in NYC. I want this where I live, not just in Brooklyn.

There was a scene in an early M*A*S*H episide where Col. Blake toasts a Korean officer by saying "Cheers." The Korean officer replied "L'Chayim."

For those curious, L'Chayim means "To life."

I'm willing to bet that I'm the only one here who can make the following two truthful claims:

1.  I studied Yiddish while I was in grad school earning my MSEE.  I still have my texts annd my copy of the standard modern Yiddish-English dictionary (Uriel Weinreich's).

2.  I was the (unpaid) President of a federally (USA) chartered financial institution.

 

Any takers?

@antedeluvian: Far funnier was in "Blazing Saddles" where the Native American chief speaks in yiddish.

Ah, yes; Mel Brooks as the chief:  "Schwarzes!" when the Black family is circling their wagon.

@Stargzer..."fartshadeter—A bewildered, befuddled person."

@Antedeluvian... "(Does anyone else remember McHale's Navy..."

Great program.  Haven't seen it for years, though.

 (Does anyone else remember McHale's Navy, where Fuji, the Japanese POW, was always saying "Oy, vey!" at the first sign of trouble?)

Far funnier was in "Blazing Saddles" where the Native American chief speaks in yiddish.
