    “Kvetch” was actually a correct response on last night’s “Jeopardy!”

    From “Blazing Saddles”:
    Schwartzes!
    Nah, nah, seit nicht meshugga.
    LAUSENGEHN!
    Auf wie Gesund!
    Hast du gesehn in diene Leben?
    (They darker than us! Woof!)
    Yiddish speaking Indians

    Translation:
    Blacks!
    No, no, don’t do anything crazy.
    LET THEM GO!
    To your health.
    Have you seen (anything like that) in your life?

    I can see I’ve entered the Borscht Belt. For anyone interested in learning Yiddish, check out How to Speak Yiddish by Leo Rosten. It’s fun!

    Blazing Saddles = funniest movie of all time, brings a smile just thinking about it. God bless Mel Brooks.

    Let’s see. Eddie Cantor. Milton Berle. SId Caesar. Jack Benny. Carl Reiner. Mel Brooks. Alan King. Danny Kay. The Three Stooges. The Marx Brothers. And on and on. (Wikipedia lists over 200, though not all of that era.)

    I now know that a schlemiel is someone who always spills soup, and a schlimazel is someone it always lands on.
