Schmuck (or shmuck)

Posted by Stitch Jones on September 25, 2003

I am currently watching a movie named "The Life of David Gale" in which Kevin Spacey's character states, roughly, that the word "schmuck" is a jewish word in reference to the part of the male penis discarded during circumcision. I checked archives and found no such reference. Any truth to such claim?
