I'm getting more brazen in my Brokiespeak lately. This morning in response to a request for pictures of a project I replied, "Here are some updated photos, none of them very good, but s'all we got."

I got off an elevator in an apartment building.  An arrow pointed to the left for apartments J-P, and another pointed right for apartments Q-T.  You know I started thinkin' about that pup tent.  :)

I like "Brokish."

"Brokish"?  ??? Oy, vey. ...  ;D

Gosh, I find I use them all the time!

I'm starting out sentances with "Friend", more and more.
I used "If we can't fix it we have to stand it"
I've used "truth is" and "tell ya what" a lot too.

Must be from living in NY all these years.  ;D

Maybe Yiddish isn't so bad a comparison.  It has lots of great words and phrases that have entered everyday speech, and I'll bet Brokish will, too.  ;D

oy vey = shit, that's hard
kvetch = bitch
pisher = pissant
tush - ass
gelt = bucks
schlong = dick
mensch = good ol' boy
bris = dick-clip
chutzpah = balls

That's why I immediately understood Jeff's oy vey. It's oh weh in German. Guess I'm a bit slow-witted today  ::).
