2012-10-05 Rerun commentary: "Oy vey" is an English phrase of Yiddish origin.

It's kind of an unusual thing for me as an Australian author, since most Yiddish terms that enter English do so through American usage, adopted from the relatively large Jewish population, and very few of them filter into common Australian usage. Evidently Terry watches a lot of imported American TV.
