Schmaltz this!

The above photo depicts a table at the legendary Sammy's Roumanian restaurant in the Lower East Side of NYC. Two of the required foodstuffs are included in this photo - seltzer (in blue), and schmaltz (in yellow). For years and years and years I've wanted to go here, but could never find someone masochistic enough to join me in the artery hardening glory of Sammy's.

Until this past Friday.

Mmmm schmaltz.

Of course, now I'm literally obsessed with the word schmaltz. Poor kathryntact has had to put up with me using schmaltz in almost every sentence imaginable. "Boy, I'd like to dip my stick in your schmaltz." Or, "oh yeah, schmaltz me baby."

Sounds like a great idea for a meme on a rainy Monday. Give me your most schmaltzy sentence!

For more Sammy's fun, click the building on each page here to get a visual display of their egg cream magic.

I'm going to beat the schmaltz right out of you....

Yeah I wasn't convinced either.

I'll give 'em so much schmaltz they'll have to wipe their nose with a pancake!

Mmmmn, schmaltz! I was also amused about the discussion of schmaltz as lube. We agreed it was something not for pussies, but maybe anal.

@invisiblegrrl Schmaltz is melted chicken fat. At Sammi's you pour a little on a thick slice of bread. Delicious!

C'mon, it's the syntax for replying to someone else, not just on Twittter!

That's what ANY twitteraholic would say.

I want you to suck it so hard I schmaltz a hole in the back of your head.

I will torture you with vegetarian schmaltz.

Ya know? I might actually be willing to try it. Maybe.
Apr. 6th, 2009 04:59 pm (UTC)
I find your lack of schmaltz disturbing.
Apr. 6th, 2009 05:12 pm (UTC)
Ha! Best one yet. I want to use this in every restaurant I eat at now.

Glad you liked it. Please feel free to distributed it as you see fit on unsuspecting servers and customers everywhere!

Can you imagine if I start getting that one spread out?
Apr. 6th, 2009 05:40 pm (UTC)
All you had to do was ASK. I _love_ Sammy's and haven't been there in Too Long.
(Though really, as I'm freshly unemployed, I shouldn't be going there now…)

Next time you're in NY, it's a date.

For the Jack Nicholson fans
Jack Nicholson as Colonel Jessup in 'A Few Good Men', parody text added 'You want the Schmaltz?  You can't handle the Schmaltz!'

The Schmaltzing, it's infectious.

You are a genius. Pure, unadulterated, genius.

Re: For the Jack Nicholson fans
I can't find the right screencap yet, but I seem to be on a USMC kick right now:

"BULLSHIT! I bet you could suck a Schmaltzball through a garden hose!"

Hrrm, youtube ...

Here, have another
Mary Poppins portrayed by Scarlett Strallen at New Amsterdam Theater NYC - 'A little bit of Schmaltz helps the medicine go down'

Something about this one, it tips between innocent and oh-so-not.

Re: Here, have another
You're amazing! I love this!

I SO need to take you here!!!
Apr. 7th, 2009 05:09 am (UTC)
Next time we're going to be out that way, I'll see if you're free and maybe we can do it.

Egg cream! And I can try the goopy fat-stuff on bread!!!

(It's HOURS later and I'm still excited.)
Apr. 6th, 2009 07:50 pm (UTC)
Oh WOW they actually have SCHMALTZ on the TABLES ?!?!?!
Apr. 6th, 2009 07:51 pm (UTC)
Like syrup handed to us from the Gods above.
Apr. 7th, 2009 07:07 am (UTC)
I came up with another one. The last one was Star Wars and this one is Star Trek.

"Schmaltz! Cho ee choo!"

It's obscure but it amused me.
