My Litvak wife (who has just discovered her family name Nieman was
Novosetz~Novosedz~Nowosedz in Birzai, Lithuania) also remembers hearing
Galitsiana for "bumpkin"--the equivalent of living in Podunk for USers.
(The mythical residents of Chelm could also be invoked...)

PS to Jim Landau--Jim MacKillop has no pseudonym: my teenage daughter picked
"einstein" as our moniker--David Bergdahl
