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.

He's a former American Football player. It made a nice sound and could have been glue, he liked the pretty sound and just popped it in there to fill up more time in a 5+ minute series of meaningless noise.
