Mishpucha

Cidu Bill on Jun 28th 2013

Last week, dictionary.com’s word-of-the-day mailing list offered the word “mishpucha,” which happens to be one of my favorite Yiddish words, giving no indication that it was a Yiddish word.

Has “mishpucha” made its way into mainstream English?

Obviously I don’t have the perspective to answer this, so I’m throwing out the question: who knows what a mishpucha is?

Needless to say, if you’re Jewish, please refrain from responding until at least Monday afternoon. Likewise if you hang out with Jews who’ve used the word in your presence. Or you live in New York City. Or you get daily mailings from dictionary.com. In other words, I’m looking for untainted Gentiles.

Are the generalizations in the second and third panels based in fact? Because my observations tell me they are not.

Jon Delfin submitted this as an LOL. I see what’s going on here — the Old Lady thinks the Gingerbread Man has run into the men’s room — but unless there’s something more going on here, what’s the joke?

The Reader

Cidu Bill on Jun 21st 2013

This one made me laugh for a personal reason (I’m pretty sure I told this story in a different context a while back here, so feel free to skip past it…

A few days before my son’s fourth birthday, as he was sitting on my lap and I was reading “Little House on the Prairie” to him, I noticed his head kept moving left to right and back again in sync with the words I was reading. I stopped and said “Zachary, do you know how to read?”

He said “Yes,” sort of hesitantly.

“Why didn’t you tell us?”

“Because I like being read to, and once you knew I could read, you wouldn’t read to me anymore.”

(and as it turned out, because I’m a terrible human being, he was pretty much correct)

Yeah, and this is why the Luddite I’m married to finally let me buy her a Kindle before we flew to California earlier this year; but what’s the joke?
