Schmatta. Goddam It, Schmatta.

Standard

I sort of love that they refer to these scraps of schmatta as “swimwear” when, obviously, they are go-go boy lingerie.

And how do you turn off this fucking auto-correct, which has been fighting me over “schmatta” like it’s a matter of honor.

  2. Maybe it wouldn't autocorrect if you used only one “t”. I've always seen it spelled “schmata”. But then I'm from near Chicago, location central for one of the country's most infamous simplified spelling campaigns, so what do I know?

  3. I'd rather die than correct Mr. Peenee, but I'm going to risk it. It's because the correct Yiddish spelling is 'schmatte'.
