motza, n. colloq. a large amount of money, esp. a gambling win [? f. Yiddish matzo, bread]

2015-08-22 Rerun commentary: Admittedly those seat covers look a bit... furry for ox-hide.

Imagine the Starship Enterprise bridge, with custom seat covers on all the crew station seats. That would be kind of cool.

And yes, I've been known to use the word "motza" in casual conversation. Australian English is so much fun!
