    From Urban Dictionary:

    Yiddish insult. THE most potent and offensive insult known to man. it has so much connotation that cannot be truly defined that the closest you can come to its meaning is "horrible person". no other definition has the meaning, and there is no way to convey how powerful that word is. Use with caution.

    Hitler was a prime example of a paskudnyak. You'd be hard pressed to come up with others.

    Paskud (паскуд) is Russian for bastard.

    Also from Urban Dictionary:


    Yiddish word meaning "a fool" or "a shame".

    A "shonda for the goyim" means to do something shameful, publicly witnessed by non-Jews, thus bringing shame upon Jews in general (because, the theory goes, we are all held accountable for the worst deeds of the worst of us.)

    "Eric Cantor is a shonda".

    Eric Cantor

    U.S. Congressman or possibly manager of the asshole store.

    'Eric Cantor reminds me of the Manager of the asshole store.' -Lewis Black.
