    I hang my head in shame when I think about the amount of bandwith consumed by this issue.

    OMG, what's Trump saying? is it code? a signal to Putin? what?

    Everybody go die in a fire.

    I agree, although there has been some pretty funny stuff out there.

    Does that bandwidth include those of us who are just having fun and don't take typos as a serious issue?

    No, and I thought Trump and Spicer had some fun with it and I appreciated that.

    So yesterday, I used the term Oy Vey at work and the security guard had no idea what I was saying. Not a lot of Yiddish spoken in Utah.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Not in Brooklyn, Skokie and certain areas of L.A.

    Interesting J-factoid of the day: Hebrew was considered a dead language before emigration to Palestine took off. It was basically recreated as a modern language (biblical Hebrew is a bit different from Hebrew spoken today in Israel)

    Fun fact: "Even though they don't seem similar, putz and schmuck share the same meaning in Yiddish. Schmuck comes from shmok meaning ****. And putz comes from putz, which is another word for ****."
  • ricinusricinus Senior Member Posts: 6,214 Senior Member
    What's Latin for putz?

    I believe the proper latin term is described here. Hint: its "Bigus Dickus"
