"@Stargzer: Max kens Yiddish?

Shouldn't that be "Groks Yiddish"? LOL"

I thought that a Scots word would be closer to your homeland than a Martian word.  Then again, maybe I have your homeland wrong.

"Do I look like a fartshadeter?" 

Oy, vey! No!  Had to look around for that one!  It's just that your knowledge seems boundless.  All Hail Max the Magnificent!

fartshadeter—A bewildered, befuddled person. This is a word appropriate even for someone to say about oneself. Highly unexpected events can fartshader you. "I'm all fartshadet because my daughter told me she's pregnant." "So what's to be fartshadet?" "You don't understand—she's still single."

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

@Max:  "@Stargzer: Better than being a momzer!  ;-)

Well duh!"

Whoa!  Max kens Yiddish?  Does his knowledge know no bounds?

( I have some Jewish friends and a copy of Rosten's somewhere.)

@Stargzer: "My Beagles... are eating machines second only to the shark."

I will go along with that.  There is a beagle nearby that I have taken for walks occasionally when her owners are away.  She will pull me 15 feet off the path and turn around triumphantly with a dry old chicken bone in her mouth.  I can see why they use them as search dogs at airports.  Great dogs though.

BTW If you will get in touch with me at stn564 (at) yahoo (dot) com (dot) au I will try and post you a packet or two of Tim-Tams.  Such devotion to Aussie food should not go unrewarded ..... and I don't like to think of you being ropeable!

@Max: ". . . a card-carrying member of the non-bagle-eating fraternity."

My Beagles and I are happy that this was only an apparent transposition of the 'e' and 'l' and not an omission of an 'e' before the 'a.' So, I am sure, is MeasurementBlues, since I believe that like bacon, dogs are not on the Kosher Menu.

My Beagles love Bagels, and just about any other food; they are eating machines second only to the shark.

@MeasurementBlues:  "Unacceptable."

Ah, well, what can I say?  I'm just another meshuga goy.  Better than being a momzer!  ;-)

"non-bagle-eating fraternity"

Not quite. I have a meeting on Sunday morning and I volunteered to get the bagels. I'm getting up early to try a place for the first time. http://katzbagels.com/
