Thought Schlmeal or schlmozzle?

I have always wondered what a schlmeal or schlmozzle was. Which, if either of Laverne or Shirley was a schlmeal or a schlmozzle?

I lived in Milwaukee once, and I happen to know that Schlmeal and Schlmozzle are a big law firm there.
















I'm kidding. I don't know what the hell it means.

a schlemiel is a fool or a bumbler and a schlemazel is a person prone to bad luck.

they are Yiddish words, often with an explanation similar to the following explanation:

A "schlemiel" is the guy most likely to spill the wine at dinner.
A "schlemazel" is the guy most likely to have the wine spilled on him.
And the "nudnick" is the guy most likely to ask (in a nasal voice), "Gee, what kind of wine was that anyhow?"


I think Penny once defined them as - a schlemiel is someone that trips over nothing, and a schlemazel is someone that trips over the schlemiel.
