Today's Word: schlemiel

schlemiel: A Yiddish term for a bungling, gullible idiot. "That schlemiel just put a $500 check in the mail and is now anxiously awaiting word from the Nigerian prince who needed the money." Schlemiel is identified in the Talmud with a prince who met an unfortunate end.

Don't be a schlemiel!
