I love those #UnwantedIvanka memes.

 

The picture has text "shanda spawn of a daughter".

 

FYI, the word shanda (written as שאַנד = shand, but pronounced either shand or shandeh) is a Yiddish word that means a shame or a disgrace. It comes from the German word "schande", pronounced shandeh, with the same meaning: shame, disgrace, dishonor, ignominy, infamy, opprobrium.

 

Sounds about right for Ivanka.

Thanks, I was unfamiliar with the term shanda. It adds an interesting context to that twitter post.

Something non-Canadians don't know about this song: the line "they're not even a real country, anyway" comes from a quote from the now-deceased seccesionist Quebec politician Lucien Bouchard, who said in 1995, of Canada "It is divisible because it's not a real country."

 

After the separatists lost the 1995 referendum on Quebec secession, the party leader Jacques Parizeau blamed the loss on "money and ethnic votes".
