- n. Plural form of meshuggener.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
So much of the book is heavy with meaning and counter-meaning, innuendo and awful implication, that translation would be a challenge even without its freight of rich consonantal Manchester Yiddish – its mitzvahs, shiksas, farshimelts, meshuggeners and yisgadals.
For the rest of us there was some serious catching up to be done and we weren’t going to manage that with meshuggeners like Manny Washinsky hanging around.
