Word of the Day: SHICKSTER

from shiksa (in Jewish speech, a gentile girl) 

“…The Parson is on the highfly in a fantail banger and a milky mill tog. He got the cant of togs from a shickster whose husband’s in a bone-box. He’ll gammon the swells. He touched one for an alderman the first ten minutes…”

From: The Sydney Slang Dictionary, 1880
