A shande far di goyim!

"A shame in front of the goyim."

Hurled by Abbie Hoffman at a Jewish judge, Julius Hoffman, during the trial of the Chicago Eight. Thrown about originally in 1756 during the "Battle of the Balcony," and most recently blogged about Sen. Joe Lieberman.

A shande, indeed. We just watched the one X-Files with Jews - the one with the Golem. It's very good, except for the fact that the young Jewish widow keeps calling her father tate (which is right) and pronouncing it tahtay (which is wrong).
The word is pronounced ta-teh.


What, you couldn't find a Jew in show business to teach you?
Shande. Shan-deh.
