Ski is a derivative of the word skila. In fact, skiing was invented by the Romans, who observed how someone was thrown over a cliff during skila.February 13, 2011 9:17 pm at 9:17 pm #740485tzvideerMember
i think the SK stands for the words “so kool”
like my broski, my brother is so kool
or doorski – its kool to go through the door.
or icecremski – really kool ice cream.
the “I” i am not really sure, i think it was an add-on by the chassidim who daven nusach ari……February 13, 2011 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #740486seeallsidesParticipant

I usually just hang out here without being vocal but I gotta say that if I could nominate a favorite thread this would be it.
It’s funny, doesn’t talk about divorce or Starbucks, and doesn’t shun Jews who think they are shomer shabbos when we know they aren’t.February 14, 2011 3:44 pm at 3:44 pm #740488bptParticipant

ettie thank you
bpt why would it be about skiing, its about the suffix “SKI” and what do pollack jokes have anything to do with thisFebruary 15, 2011 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #740493bptParticipant
its about the suffix “SKI”
From the thread title, there was no way to know its about a “suffix”.. it just said “ski”
Once I saw its about teen slang, I backed off. I have enough to deal with my family’s Brooklyn slang and Yeshiva shprach, I’m not looking for more words to introduce / uproot.
