Just busting your chops.... although there's an old Jewish lady who disagrees with you:

She teaches a class at the center in “mamalushen,” the mother tongue of Yiddish, to seniors who want to better understand “the things you heard your mother say.” YIVO believes Kneydl is right, and they're considered an authoritative source by many. Others are arguing that there simply is no authoritative spelling — just a consensus on pronunciation. This is true for a lot of words from the Hebrew alphabet (which Yiddish uses) like "Hannukah," and "Mazel Tov."
“I wouldn’t have spelled it with an ‘i,’ ” she added.
But Aaron Goldman, a former accountant and sales manager in a blue baseball cap, jumped to his feet and banged on the table as plastic wear bounced.
“That would be ‘knawdle,’ not knaidle!” he said.
