Rossi Glossary Word of the Day – Chazzer

While discussing l’affair Houston and the aftermath of the funeral on last night’s show, a caller wanted to know what Jesse Jackson was doing at the service seated to the left of the podium within camera range.

Getty Images-Media "chazzers"!

But not just Jesse Jackson…Al Sharpton was there too.

A well attended photo op for a highly recognized member of the African American community! Honestly, do you think they’d miss out on that?

Invitation or no invitation, they’d be there regardless.

So I told the caller that the both of them, in my view, are media “chazzers”.

Which leads to the question:

Just what is a “chazzer”?

The Yiddish for goyem dictionary,, describes it as a pig or a glutton.

Or you may remember the scene from “Scarface”:

Frank Lopez: You know what a chazzer is?
Tony Montana: No, Frank, you tell me. What is a chazzer?
Frank Lopez: It’s a Yiddish word for “pig.” See, the guy, he wants more than what he needs. He don’t fly straight no more.

Hence, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson….2 “chazzers”….gluttons for attention.

Or as a radio personality on another station says in a particular car commercial: Don’t be a “chazzer”!

Pronunciation is as follows:

Make like you’re going to hurl up a phlegm ball, using a very harsh “h” sound.


Very good! Practice that in the mirror a few times, and you’ll have mastered Posse Pronunciation in no time!

And by the way, save copies of these…they may come in handy someday.
