The Goings-On
Schlemiel and Schlemazel
12/3/2008
So what's the deal with these crazy words!? Well, to start you off, let's just say "the schlemiel spills the soup on the schlemazel."
schlemiel
- An awkward and unlucky person for whom things never turn out right.
schlemazel
- An extremely unlucky or inept person; a habitual failure.
So these words are Yiddish, and as you may imagine, there seem to be many alternative spellings of these guys, but I will still take suggestions! In the meantime, you can also browse this list of English words of Yiddish origin.
