Pipik? #general

krippens <krippens@...>

Hello everyone,

Something triggered a childhood memory of the word pipik. I vaguely
remember jokes about Moishe Pipik, as in 'who do you think you are,
Moishe Pipik?'

I can't find the word in any Yiddish resource I have. Can anyone tell me
what 'pipik' means? Or where it came from, or what the joke about it is?

Much thanks
Karen Jo Rippens
