noun. A Yiddish lobotomy. Lox is optional.

Real citation: "'economy, schmobotomy'??? You sound like an ostrich with his head in the sand. Not saying it isn't normally sparse at the beach, but facts are rolling in from governments which track the income from late summer and early fall . . . it's evident tourist areas have already dropped noticeably and will continue to drop. And when this second wave of the crisis hits and the markets continue to drop, the outlook is going to be real dismal for next summer."

Made-up citation: "I don't know where you got your information, but I don't perform schmobotomies in my gazebo! But--wink wink--for a small fee, I could do a schmexorcism if you are older than 17."
