#123622 - 02/21/04 03:35 PM Ahftseloches
From a Yiddish Dictionary:
Ahftseloches (ahf tseh luh chass) n : inevitable bad luck. The result of a kinehora. The boss calls you in to tell you of your promotion and you have a piece of spinach lodged between your front teeth. Aftseloches, you think. Something like this had to happen!

Have I got this right? Ahftseloches is to the Jewish what Murphy's Law is to... the Irish? Is that even the appropriate cultural assignation for Murphy's Law?
