“God protect us from goyishe hands and Jewish tongues!” (“Got zol op’hitn fun goyishe hent un yidishe reyd!”) No wonder this saying came into being, as the Yiddishe curses are often funny and intricately elaborate unfulfillable prophesies of doom.

The Yiddishe words and sounds are such a perfect match with the sensibility of the outrage expressed; they make me giggle.
