Ramone’s Yiddish Word of the Week
chutzpah – Extreme arrogance, nerve; as in the “the nerve of him!” In English, people associate chutzpah with something positive, but it’s actually not a compliment. I was shocked too, I thought it was a positive thing. I guess I learned something.
- Mike McKelly is a huge douche! He has real chutzpah!
- I’m the sexiest person in the world. That’s not chutzpah, that’s a fact!
