You might be able to pull it off! I've got a bit of a problem with what it stands for, but that's a personal problem.

Not that it's important...

I believe the spelling is "yarmulke". Foreign words sometimes get different English transliterations, especially when they don't start out with a Romanized alphabet.

I guess. When I was looking it up, though, google corrected it to "yamaka" and found it...

yamaka - Google Image Search

Searching for "yarmulke" definitely returns better results. Webster seems to agree, too.
