A buxom blonde wore, at a charity ball, an enormous diamond. "It happens to be the third most famous diamond in the whole world," she boasted. "The first is the Hope Diamond, then comes the Kohinoor, and then comes this one, which is called Lipshitz." "What a diamond!" "How lucky you are!" "Wait, wait, nothing in life is all mazel ", said the diamonded lady, "Unfortunately, with this famous Lipshitz diamond you must take the famous Lipshitz curse!" The ladies buzzed and tsked, "And what's the Lipshitz curse?" "Lipshitz," sighed the lady. From -- Joys of Yiddish * by * Leo Rosten, Washington Square Press 1968.
