Nothing is censored in Dirty Yiddish. It includes phrases for any situation, so readers have enough chutzpah (balls) tell the local deli that they've waited long enough for their knish, and explicit swear words crude enough to shock Bubby and everyone else at the Passover seder. There's even vulgar sex terminology so graphic it puts the outspoken Lower East Side princesses to shame. Next time you're chattin' in Yiddish with your friends, bust out with expressions they never teach you in school, including:
Explicit sex terms
Raw swear words
