New York Shitty Day Ender: Word Of The Day

Chutzpah (IPA: /ˈxÊŠtspÉ™/) is the quality of audacity, for good or for bad. The word derives from the Hebrew word ḥuá¹£pâ (חֻצְפָּה), meaning “insolence”, “audacity”, and “impertinence.” The modern English usage of the word has taken on a wider spectrum of meaning, however, having been popularized through vernacular use, film, literature, and television.

In Hebrew, chutzpah is used indignantly, to describe someone who has over-stepped the boundaries of accepted behavior with no shame. But in Yiddish and English, chutzpah has developed ambivalent and even positive connotations. Chutzpah can be used to express admiration for non-conformist but gutsy audacity. Leo Rosten in The Joys of Yiddish defines chutzpah as “gall, brazen nerve, effrontery, incredible ‘guts,’ presumption plus arrogance such as no other word and no other language can do justice to.” In this sense, chutzpah expresses both strong disapproval and a grudging admiration…

So let me get this straight. This person saw fit to take the time to:

A. make and post fliers requesting that the “pretty” woman he saw leave a television on the curb* give him the remote control that accompanied it. Presumably for free.

B. set up an email address so in the event that the aforementioned woman…

  1. actually finds said fliers
  2. puts “2 + 2” together
  3. is not creeped out that this man knows what she looks like and
  4. decides to give this gent the remote control in question

…she can contact him.

Wouldn’t it have been easier simply to take down the make and model of said set and purchase an universal remote— or I am I missing something here? Thoughts anyone?

*This is just plain creepy. Seriously.

Not content with merely duping the elderly and naive into purchasing energy at inflated prices it would appear that IDT Energy is now embroiled in a case of dognapping.

…Person had a tattoo on his neck.


Miss Heather

P.S.: In all seriousness folks if you know anything about this most unusual situation please contact the dog’s rightful owner at the above telephone numbers. I do not know if either of the following fliers are related to the one gracing the beginning of this post— but to be on the safe side here they are.



This is the kind of stuff that breaks my heart. There is a special place in hell for the kind of people would steal pets for money. Jerks.
