Schmatta. Goddam It, Schmatta.

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.

    1. I think if I, the goyest of goys, know the damn word, spellcheck should too.

    PS Spell-check comes with your browser. Just right-click and you can un-tick it to turn it off.

  3. 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?

    1. Nope, definitely two t's. I know cause I looked it up once autocorrect started pouting about it.

  5. I think with that one in the top photo, "on" and "off" are a pretty arbitrary point. Although an important one.

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

    1. Schmatte. While Google proves that you're quite correct, auto-correct still doesn't like it. Cookie's quite correct, obviously WASP centric editing.
