    Unhappy Who Cares?????

    I read from the original postings on this subject, that someone commented,,,"Who cares, or specifically....who gives a rats ***" Well friend, check around, we (FDNY) weren't alone that first week, and your Rats *** attitude will get your Rats *** kicked if you in fact say that too often! This situation affects not only FDNY, but every Firefighter, Paramedic, Police Office and Volunteer that came to assist. Smuck!!!!!

    RR: Did you mean to hit "reply" instead of new post"?

    To what topic? Sounds like something posted on the statue thread. You might wanna re-post.

    A smuck (unsure of the correct spelling) is the YIDDISH word for the discarded portion of flesh from a circumcision. It's pronounced "Shmuk". Not as bad as a Putz. Growing up in NY makes you culturally divirsified!!

    Correct Spelling & Definition ??
    Depends on who you ask.

    The Famous Kosher Nosh
    Schmuck - @$$hole

    Yiddish Translations
    Schmuck/Shmuck - jerk, also slang for the male organ

    The Ariga Glossary of Yiddish Expressions
    Shmok (taboo) - Self-made fool; obscene for penis: derisive term for a man

    And the list goes on and on.

    Basically, someone who is a complete idiot. A screwup, jerk etc...The literal YIDDISH translation may be slightly different and not being Jewish myself, the dunce label will due.
