Another good find from the ol' paper journals:

(TL23a p.47, July 13th 2003)

Amusing example phrases from the Yiddish section of "Germanic Languages":

"he got married but he didn't have a real wedding"
"he doesn't want to marry a Norwegian"
"he should announce that a goat of his was lost"
"what do I need a wife for?"
"what should I give you ten kopeks for all of a sudden?"
"so why are you walking around without pants?"
"where on earth is the second drumstick?"
"let's just try to ask the first guy we meet"
"then don't kiss me on the head!"
"then go and prove you're not a bear!"
"I'm cold and wet"
