Luck: When a man has mazel, even his ox calves
[1968+; fr Yiddish fr Hebrew]
Yes, the first line uttered by a black female cast regular since 2007 was “mazel tov.”
Author Gary Shteyngart was even congratulatory: “mazel Tov, Random Penguin!”
To all of that that I say mazel Tov, and John, Charlie, and Julian, have a glass of Manischewitz Concord Grape on me.
Two years later, in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Andrews shouted “mazel tov!”
Only, some of the committee-men laughed and nudged each other, at which mazel felt very hurt, and became very fierce.
"Come home immediately, mazel Tow," was the answer returned as fast as the wires could take it.
The tribe of mazel abounds in the Cevennes, and they had already given many martyrs to the cause.
Since the discussion had become envenomed, mazel had been ringing his bell, extremely flushed at finding his authority ignored.
As it happened, mazel was in a frightfully bad humour that day.
