Foreign phrase???

Postby Bailey » Mon Sep 14, 2009 1:48 pm

My mother had a phrase she said often, it sounded like False'a Ket'sa, she used it to describe just about anyone she disliked....she spoke English mostly, had a smattering of German and less French, Parents who spoke Swedish and my step grandfather who was Jewish, any of who she could have gotten this from.

does anyone know if this has any etmology? Any language origin?

Thanks in advance,
B.

Hi B.

Did you ever get anywhere with this? It would be interesting to find out what it was, if you know. Care to share? Are you still out there?
