עס פאַסט ווי אַ חזיר אַ שטרײַמל.

Es past vi a khazer a shtrayml.

It's as suitable as a shtreimel on a pig.

SOURCE: Bernstein, Jüdische Sprichwörter und Redensarten. A shtreimel is a fur-trimmed hat traditionally worn by rabbis and Hasidic Jews on the Sabbath and holidays. And of course the pig is ritually unclean.
