Cris Carter -- Yiddish Gone Wrong

8/18/2009 7:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former Minnesota Vikings star Cris Carter had the chutzpah to try and bust out the Yiddish word "meshuggeneh" during some yente segment on ESPN earlier today -- only he totally misused the word ... and ended up looking like a total shmendrick.

Cris Carter
TIP
-- skip to 5:27 into the clip.

For the record ... meshuggeneh is not glue. It's a crazy person. Nosh on that.

Props to Deadspin for finding this gem.

Actually he was one of the best players in the league not just among black players. A shoe in for the Hall of Fame and if you listen to him, one of the true football analysts who understands the game and knows what he is talking about.

I love TMZ alot because, I wish I was famous for something...lol but, a black man can't do or say no wrong in the media TMZ will blow it out of proportion & know that White America loves it!!!! It's a damn shame, only time I ever clicked on a topic on here and seen no negative comments in when the 27 year old Twilight star was holding his new born. Bill Cosby can be holding his grandson & you will see so many racist replies it's a damn shame but, being the site that TMZ is it will never show a black man in a positive light anyhow.

Biased information    

According to health experts, the H1N1 swine flu virus is impossible for nature to create. In other words, it was created by someone in a lab. There were patents out on vaccines way before the virus just miraculously showed up. Tell everyone you know that this is a manufactured crisis. What they intend to do with this manufactured crisis is a bit unknown at this point.

What we do know:

1. It's man-made by those who have the means, knowledge and resources.
2. It's being hyped by the for-profit media and vested government agencies.
3. The vaccine is paid for by tax-payer dollars to the tune of billions.

Wake up folks. Take the rose-colored glasses off. You have real threats and one of those real threats are many of those who would profit from a manufactured crisis.

Google the 1976 Swine Flu fiasco. It'll give you some reality of how far these vested interests will go and how many they'll sacrifice for money and power.

Only marry foreign women    

TMZ is one of the only places in the media that does not worship special interest groups like women and blacks. But the also to not favor white men. They report the news with out feminist (man bad, woman good) and racist slant.

#1-lost in lalaland. CRAZY GLUE, GOOD ONE!!!!
I think he was so passionate about the subject of Brett, that Chris didn't realize what he was saying. Maybe someone told him that was what it meant. Even I know it means crazy, and I'm a Christian.

Mike,

Completely agree. One of the best wide receivers of all time. He and Randy Moss were one of the most feared and productive receiving tandems ever. When you double teamed one, the other was able to make a big play/catch. Definitely a future HOFer. Even signed a photo for me.


I'm so glad to see Cris on ESPN. ESPN should hire more former players like Cris, as they have a unique and insightful perspective of the game. All he does is catch touchdowns!!
