Wrapping up the joy of oy

July 24, 2014

When Martin Baker of Liverpool was about to wrap a gift in this paper, his wife berated him for its "festive" flavour.

But turn the paper upside down and it is suitable for any Yiddish occasion. Though I can't tell you if the exclamation refers to the cost of the gift or anticipates the recipient's disappointment.
