A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
This week's theme: expressions coined after the names of birds.
kibitz (KIB-its) verb intr.
1. To look on at some activity and offer unwanted advice or criticism.
2. To chat or banter.
[From Yiddish kibitsen, from German kiebitzen (to look on at cards), from Kiebitz (busybody, literally pewit or lapwing, a bird with a bad reputation as a meddler).]
"Bochy and most managers refrain from kibitzing, and they let their
pitchers and catchers decide what to throw."
Never eat more than you can lift. -Miss Piggy, a character in the cartoon "The Muppet Show" a puppet show on television
