Quandary Resolution 2626
larrikin, antsy, meshuggener, unctuous
Shaking his head at Shmendrik's larrikin antics, Kleinbaum turned to Schmalz and hissed: "Listen, not to kvetch (you know me, I'm a mensch, and okay, so the little schlemiel is mispocha), but that antsy meshuggener's gonna get us all caught, unless--" and here Kleinbaum shifted to a more unctuous tone-- "unless maybe (and I'm getting all verklempt as I say this, but I'm thinking about the mazel of the whole thing), just maybe we shoot a tranquilizer dart into that little nudnik's tukhus, grab the gelt, and vamoose?"
