I think he's making some kinda abstrupid® reference to chopped liver, Jackie. Ignore it! Just cause a Cornell perverter says sumptin' don't make it so without evidence.

My dear mom had a number of colorful expressions. If you fidgeted in church, you were "like a worm in hot ashes." A heavy snowstorm was a "fanny dragger." A greasy mess was a "mommick."

I think the word mommick was in the book, "Christy". I think one of the characters used it while attempting to give a dose of medicine that didn't make it down. (The book takes place in the mountains of...NC, I think, or TN.)

Sigodlin is a regional expression. Antigodlin is its equivalent in the South and West.

Origin and Etymology of antigodlin according to Merriam-Webster:

anti- + -godlin, -goglin, probably variants of goggling, present participle of “goggle” (in the now archaic sense “look obliquely, (of the eyes) take an oblique position”)
