    We call a messy-nebby-wierd situation combined:challee-pulkee (NOT TO BE USED ON PEOPLE!)

    A great-exciting-perfect situation is:juicy (not couture…)

    My Father A”H used the word “pespechnye” to mean unpleasant like unpleasant weather. I don’t know if it’s made up or if it’s a real Russian word.

    We call out sandwich maker the “tzzzzz” because that’s what it sounds like.

    It sounds very funny when we make other people sandwiches and we say, “Hey, just plug in the tzzzzz, okay?”

    We ALSO say lupper. And brupper for when we have pancakes for supper or something.

    Then there’s FFY for Fend For Yourself dinner night (but that’s not my family, that’s my cousins who I stay with in the summer).

    The garage door opener is the clicker, the garage is either “the Pesach kitchen” or “the folding chair gemach” depending on our moods, a fudgsicle is a fudgie, and a pool float is a floatie or a floater.

    My kids say “it’s a thing-a-maboodle”. They made that one up themselves.

    My little one calls chocolate milk “kaku”. He couldn’t say the long version when he was younger, so the nickname stuck.

    We say Jimjams for pyjamas. Nasse lecho dodi for nothing, e.g, if you tidy up you’ll get a Nasse lecho dodi.

    That posuk you cited is from Maftir of Yom Kippur, not mussaf.
