We think – and we realize that this is pure speculation – that the slang Yiddish term, “Oy Vey”, which roughly means: “Oh No”, may very well have been created by, or at least derives from the Persian Jews.

The Farsi slang for “Oh No”, is “Ey Vay” – pronounced: ay-vaay – and is used as often and commonly amongst Iranians, as “Oy Vey” is in the Jewish community and beyond. We don’t care for conspiracy theories, but we found this worth sharing.
