Dropped the weekend nitpick in favor of a Sunday picknick. But in the end I still end up at loanwords from Germany.
Mel Brooks parade for schmuck:
When you look up the origin of the word it is not less pejorative than the words in use today. Only 'schmuck' did not travel as far as do the F-A words today.
Those are in daily use over most parts of the world now.
A parade to save and revive the word schmuck? Donations? What the....why?
