    Express It In Yiddish!!
    Don't threaten me (you can't threaten an atheist with going to hell), I am not intimidated or scared, couldn't care less,
    אל תאיים עלי, אתה לא מפחיד, לא מבהיל, לא מבעית, לא מטיל אימה, לך תאיים על הסבתא שלך

    גיי סטראַשע די גענז

    gey stra'she di genz

    go threaten the geese

    תאיים על האווזים

    Yiddish is rich with expressions. In fact, sometimes the same phrase can be said in a number of different ways. I try to bring the unique ones, where it is is not obvious from the literal translation what the expression means.
