Actually, putz and schmuck both mean penis.  So, either fits LD!

We've got the beginnings of a best-seller!

Tsebrokhn-pleytse Barg

Someone can just photoshop the boys with yarmulkes instead of cowboy hats, and we're in business.  ;D

Tell you what, for whatever reason, for me putz seems to have ... diminutive connotations. I'd say LD is a great big schmuck.

Or maybe he's a great big schmuck with a tiny little putz?  ;D

That might explain a lot. ...

This is great!!!
A few more:

Alma Jr. is such a shayna maidala.

Alma and Ennis had a small chassina, not many of the muspucha came.

Ennis was a zer swer arbiter, so he couldn't meet Jack till November, but he still never had any gelt.

Alma was able to buy a lot of chotzkas when she married Monroe.

They all had asach tsuris, thats why they were all so sad all the time.

(I have no clue about the spellings.)

Paul, I love the yarmulkes with cowboy hats!  :laugh:

Good ones, Cameron!  Spelling schmelling, we get the gist.  ;D

Puny putz syndrome explains a LOT in this world, Jeff.  :P

My sister-in-law used a Brokieism today without even knowing it  ;D.

Today is a public holiday in Germany and the family met to celebrate my niece's birthday. My sister-in-law's husband said something she didn't approve of and when she criticized him, he answered

"I just thought so..." - close enough, but not yet a Brokieism.

Then his wife countered with "Yeah, yeah. You're a real thinker here."

Made me chuckle.  :)

"You're a real thinker here."

"Du bist ein vierglich denker, hier?"

Sorry, my German is very rusty.  :)

Hey, that's quite close, Jeff! Very good  :) - and not rusty at all.

vierglich = wirklich

She said: "Ja, ja. Du bist ein echter Denker hier."

In German, the two words wirklich and echt both mean real.
