The ‘mama loshen’ made it to the White House Monday, voiced for the gaggle by Presidental Cantor Tony Snow.
Regarding continued investigations of Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, Snow said:
“Well, what’s interesting is that there have been all these hearings on the Attorney General and yet nobody has really laid a glove on himâ¦
“At this point, we have hundreds of hearings that have produced bupkis….
Bupkis! The Yiddish word literally means ‘beans,’ but signifies something that’s of little real value/worthless.
So who taught Snow Yiddish?
We’re betting he studied “Yiddish With George and Laura” like a yeshiva bochur studies the Babli.
