I need help with the two Yiddish expressions in the following sentences.

My mother was a profetke [?], selling chickens in the heart of the
city, and her son was a porter. They called him Godel Mamzer
[bastard].

A.G. was a shtam borer [?] and had nine measures of speech. He would
tie together word upon word and story upon story and you never knew
when nor how he would end.

Please send your response privately.

Thank you,
