Did You Know?
No matter how much you know about one thing, there's always something else you ain't as good at as, because if you was, you wouldn't be as good at the thing you are at now, if you are?
His 1989 autobiography explained the meaning behind his stage name. "Ish Kabibble" derives from the Yiddish expression "Ische ga bibble?", meaning, essentially, "What, me worry?", the expression later appropriated by MAD Magazine as a motto for its Ish Kabibble-like fictitious mascot Alfred E. Neuman.
