Your local Jewish community services building. Etymology: Yiddish word: Yenta (n./v. A gossip, or busybody), AND Pentagon: n. That big building in DC.

These buildings often contain many bustling agencies with oddly-acronymed names and people busily shuffling about within them.

And, oy, word spreads FAST...

"Nu, sure. I heard there might even be a fish taouk stand!

(or Fish Tawouk). A sandwich, always served in a pita bread, that contains rapidly shaved bits of fish that have been spun on a heated electric skewer. Often with a sweating tomato or lemon atop said skewer. In all creator's years he has never actually seen this delicacy served, sold or eaten. As far as he or Dogpile.com know, it does not even exist. But the word sure does.
I had a delicious fish taouk today. But the thing leaked on my pants something fierce.

The dent ALREADY ON the exact spot of the car you near nearly drove into.
"I was on my way down to the Yentagon when some joker cuts me off. And wouldn't you know it... total coincident! Right on the fender I was about to slam into!"
