Yiddish insult. THE most potent and offensive insult known to man. it has so much connotation that cannot be truly defined that the closest you can come to its meaning is "horrible person". no other definition has the meaning, and there is no way to convey how powerful that word is. Use with caution.
Hitler was a prime example of a paskudnyak. You'd be hard pressed to come up with others.

A holiday celebrated by Jews. notably Passover (Pesah), Hanukkah, Purim, Yom Kippur, and Rosh Hashanah. all but two can be broken down to "There were bad guys, we beat em, lets eat!" ;)
There's always more than you can eat at our Passover seder.

the first monotheistic religion, basis of two of today's other major religions (Christianity and Islam). The Jewish holy book is the Torah, which is the basis for the Christian Old Testament. Judaism, except in its orthodox form, is probably the most accepting and loosest of the major religions of the Western Hemisphere. Sadly, its followers have been persecuted and ridiculed throughout the ages, and have always been misunderstood by the ignorant.
yes, I am a Jew. and to those of you who have said we are going to hell, remember that there is only one true judge of that, so don't be so arrogant as to put yourself in that position.

bastard language of Hebrew and German, used because until recently the Hebrew language was not conducive to conversation. every word is filled with untranslatable connotations, which makes it an excellent swearing language. also holds the most potent insult in the world: paskudnyak

spoken often in New York without actual knowledge of meanings. Almost always heard in combination with English.
Classic yiddish words: shlep, schmuck, klutz, mensch, bagel, and the wonderful -nik nouns (beatnik, nogoodnik...)
