Thanks for the definition. I am aware of the meaning, I am just pointing out that this is an odd word with possibly an interesting history. If I am unsure of a definition, I do have Webster's bookmarked, but again, thanks for your 'help'.

I'm sorry I offended you Pooky, Generally we will begin a discussion here with a definition, so we can all decide which merits of a definition merits discussion. I wasn't dictating to you, just following a normal tact here.

sorry :)

No worries! I was being a bit of a grump, as well as a klutz yesterday, so sorry if I came across cross. On a quick look up, I noticed that klutz has different meanings in Yiddish and German. I have not had the time to do any more research.

On another board we had a lovely discussion on yiddish, perhaps we could discuss other yiddish terms, even on this thread.
