Listed below are links to weblogs that reference What's nu? (by Mitch Sisskind):


Nu, so don't be surprised I'm the first one to chime in here. Nu, Mitchell, you think just an anybody can think up such a good use of nu as you like in the above illustration?! Here's one that Sholem Aleichem's Golde told Tevye: "Nu, let's go eat . . ." Show me another Yiddish writer as funny and great as Sholem Aleichem. Nu, okay, maybe Israel Zangwill fits the funny part. I don't know, you can go meshugah trying to recall the greats!

So nu? So sue me! Sue me, what can you do me?

Overheard at Fritzels circa 1956: “Nu, are you going to finish your coconut cake? You look a little full epis.”

Overheard at Kungsholm, circa 1952: “Nu, I’d rather have the gedaempfte brust at Fritzel’s….”

Overheard at Younker’s restaurant, December 24, 1955, at the Showmen’s League of America’s 10th annual Christmas benefit: “Nu, Bernie [Mendelsohn], we did darn well for the kinder this year!”

Overheard at the Aragon Ballroom, 1949: Says Pearl, “Darling, this hot fudge sundae is out of this world.” Morris: "Nu?"

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
