"Someone get a rabbi down here to bless this chicken. Tomorrow we're gonna go kosher."

Note to self:

If your boss is Jewish, it's probably not a great idea to say "I'm going to make sure the exhibits are in order so everything's kosher for signing the agreement."

Especially not during Thanksgiving week.

Mental note:

Stop using "kosher" as a synonym for "in order", "good", "acceptable". . .

[Title quote is from "Accepted"]

Seriously. I used to work in an office and my female boss was always referring to this or that person as a 'schmuck'. One day, she came to work and was telling us that she was reading a book and learned that 'schmuck' was yiddish word for penis. She of course was mortified, and even more so when she learned that a number of us staff people knew exactly what she was calling everyone. BTW, the office was a state govt office of human resources where all state job applicants came to seek employment. It was a funny day.
