A new website offers just the thing that’s been missing this election season: Yiddish curses for your political foes. “May you live to a hundred and twenty without Social Security or Medicare,” reads one of the entries on the Yiddish Curses for Republican Jews site. And they’re not messing around: according to the site’s Facebook page,

“The best Yiddish curses start out like a blessing and then snatch it all away. You should make a fortune…and spend it all on doctors. You should eat a feast of the most delicious foods imaginable…and every bite should make you sick. They are specific, which is why we’ve written a whole bunch of new ones for these very particular circumstances.”

Here are some of our favorite 2012-inspired additions:

“May your insurance company decide constipation is a pre-existing condition.”

“May you make a fortune, and lose it all in one of Sheldon Adelson’s casinos.”

“May your son be elected President, and may you have no idea what you did with his goddamn birth certificate.”
