Ulysses Press, Aug 21, 2012 - Foreign Language Study - 180 pages
Next time you’re chattin’ with your khaverim (friends) and mishpukheh (family), bust out some Yiddish expressions that’ll liven up the conversation, including:

• Cool slang
• Funny insults
• Explicit sex terms
• Raw swear words

Dirty Yiddish teaches the casual expressions heard every day on the streets of New York: What’s up? Vos makhst du? Crazy bastard! Meshuggeneh momzer! I’m hammered. Ikh bin fershikkert. Don’t fuck with me! Bareh mikh nit! I have the shits. Ikh hob a shittern mogn. Lick my pussy. Lekh meyn lokh. Was it good for you? Tsufreedn?

OK, so never mind that I wrote this! I'm telling you, it's really funny... Would I lie to you? Not only are there plenty of fun and funny Yiddish and Yinglish words and expressions, but there are those I invented/cobbled together because frankly, Yiddish stopped evolving about a century ago and we just needed words for naughty bits, sexual positions, drugs, and other things our grandparents didn't know from!
So buy it already! You wouldn't be sorry! I promise! And then use the words!
