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.
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.
