If you're familiar with Jewish slang, "schmuck", whose its literal meaning is a vulgar Jewish term for a penis.
From the author, Michael Wex, the author of "How to Be a Mentsh (And Not a Shmuck)
"Basically, the Yiddish word comes out of baby talk," according to Wex. "A little boy’s penis is a shtekl, a 'little stick'.
Shtekl became shmeckle, in a kind of baby-rhyming thing, and shmeckle became shmuck.
Shmeckle is prepubescent and not a dirty word, but shmuck, the non-diminutive, became obscene."
