I don’t think I have ever heard this Hebrew word spoken

I don’t read Hebrew that well, but I think it’s something like:

Tsorre HaTifnahoot.

(Maybe pm @zen)?

“Shikker” is the Yiddish word for drunk.

The word “hangover” is used also in Israel. The correct Hebrew word is hamarmoret but it is a word that is not used and most people will never have heard of it (especially if they still have a hangover).
