Schlockmeister – Friday’s Word of the Day Haiku

Happy Friday! Black Friday to be exact, and whooo-boy do I have a deal, I mean word for you! Actually dictionary.com has a word and a very timely one at that! Today’s word of the day…it’s a word you didn’t even know you needed until now…in fact it will change your life and you’re gong to want to say it every chance you get. The word…here for a limited time only, is none other than Schlockmeister!

Schlockmeister is called an Americanism, originating around 1960-65. It’s a combination of schlock, a Yiddish word meaning cheap or trashy and mayster or German Meister which means master craftsman.

I’m sure you will agree this is the perfect word for today as bargain hunters flood the shopping centers and malls in search of the latest, greatest next big, must have thing that will likely be collecting dust when next year’s Black Friday rolls around!

Happy Holidays!

schlockmeisters don’t care
if you need what they’re selling
they will convince you

people who must have
the latest, greatest new things
are schlockmeister’s tools

the internet is full
of schlockmeisters in disguise
with perfect selfies
