I’ve always associated Yiddish with comedy. Many of the best comics of the Borscht Belt were Jewish and spoke with a peculiar dialect and rhythm sprinkled with Yiddish words that were hilarious.
The Yiddish language has that ring of humor and the speed of New Yorkers. It just sounds funny.
I took a moment to look up some Yiddish words and their meanings. Schmendrik was one of my favorites. It means a stupid person.
Schmendrake moments is a new feature to my Humor Ninja Blog. Please leave your favorite foolish moments in the comments and together we will create comedy!!
