Ahaahahahah...you got it. We do say schmuck back home for pretty stuff. Jewel. Hahahah, you made me laugh. The joys of Jiddish.

I wonder how the debates on EF always end up mentioning certain human anatomy, lol.

As the Yiddish meaning is used in US English, reading the suggestion that someone should glue their schmuck to a laptop, cover it with pink glitter, and offer it as a parting gift to an old flame - well i just had to laugh a bit myself

Imho - this makes a better parting gift for a teen ex-gf!

She is not a teen from Switzerland or EU. By Swiss standards she would be more like 25. By EF standards she would be 80.

I knew it must be some kind of toy, but my imagination got the better of me.

Ah, fidget spinner, of course.

You guys are so, like, yesterday...

FYI, the youths no longer use laptops. Too much hustle. Cells, in pants pocket. The backpack is for food.
