this week's proverb
ער מיינט ער איז פרומער פון פּויפּס

transliterated
er meynt er iz frumer fun poyps

the proverb actually means
he thinks he is holier than the pope

translated to Hebrew
הוא חושב שהוא יותר קדוש מהאפפיור


here's another
אַז מען אַנטלויפט פון אַ בּרענעדיקע הויז שטעלט מען זיך נישט אָפּ קושן די מזוזה

transliterated
az men antloyft fun a brenedi'ke hoyz shtelt men zikh nit op kushn di mezu'ze

in English
fleeing a burning house, you don't stop to kiss the mezzuzah

in Hebrew
כשבורחים מדליקה בבית, לא נעצרים לנשק את המזוזה
