76. Bumpkiss? Is this a Yiddish word?
Edited on Thu Nov-02-06 12:50 AM by Radio_Lady
If so, you have it slightly misspelled!

Bupkees

It's a Yiddish word meaning "nothing" or "crap" as in: "I spent all that money on Lotto tickets and what did I get?......... Bupkees!" (pronounced BUPP-kiss, accent on the first syllable)
