.......................Hebrew / Yiddish 2 Cents of the Day.............

Yiddish.............

Farkakte - or as I like to call it the OTHER "F" word...........

an adjective, meaning 'screwed up' or 'a bad idea'; literally, 'crapped' or 'becrapped'.

"I have never seen such a farkakte project plan in living history!"


Hebrew............

Simple greeting.......... "Boker Tov" - Good Morning.

Enjoy :)

Shalom

Boker Tov, Damien.

It's 6:15 a.m. in my part of Canada.

This Hebrew/Yiddish word-of-the-day idea of yours is the opposite of farkakte.

I LOVE Yiddish! and the liberal, paranoid, NYC, Woody Allen type humor that goes with it!
Thanks Damien good idea.

I love the Yiddish words. And living in South Carolina and using any of them sure does draw atention.
I used farkakte, though I didn't know how to speek it, and will begin using Boker Tov this morning.
One of my faves is shmata or schmata, meaning rags or old clothes....if I spelled it right.
