It's Schmuck! Not so nice, maybe!

"Schmuck", or "shmuck", in American English is a pejorative term meaning one who is stupid or foolish, or an obnoxious, contemptible or detestable person. The word came into the English language from Yiddish (שמאָק, shmok), where it has similar pejorative meanings, but where its original and literal meaning is penis.

"Pun", in English, is a humorous play on words which have similar sound but different meanings; an expression in which two different applications of a word present an odd or ludicrous idea; a kind of quibble or equivocation.; examples: "I do it for the pun of it"; "his constant punning irritated her"

OK, got it. Thought you were taken in by the Norfolk folk tale about the beast. I've seen the scratch marks on the church door in Bungay, supposedly being those of some kind of devil beast (as mentioned in your link).
