    It does sound Jewish, however it is not , think more northern. Nice try though, keep up the good work and thank you for taking the time to answer the question.

    Very good with Pepperoni, correct, Honcho, correct, Ukulele, correct. But it saddens me to say that you have the wrong answer for Moped. Please try again and remember Friday I will reveal the answers.
