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."

NOW I know what to call myself!!! :-)

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

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

"@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."

@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!
