I read this to Buzz tonight before bed. I’d not read it before…cried so hard I couldn’t read the last line. Buzz was like “dude…really?” and I was all “there’s just something in my eye, go to sleep”.
actual german compound nouns:
Staubsauger (vaccuum cleaner, literally “DUST SUCKER”)
Vorhang (curtain, literally “HANGS IN FRONT”)
Wasserkocher (kettle, literally “WATER BOILER”)
AS SOON AS I SAW “HAND ANKLE” (Handgelenk) I KNEW THESE WERE GERMAN TO ENGLISH TRANSLATIONS.
I’m German, I don’t understand this.
I’m still only running on 3,5 hours of sleep (and a slight hangover) though, because I’m German.
now that the world cup has ended, I would like to apologize for the amount of wc posts. This is why it only takes place every 4 years: People go crazy. People spam. People die. Of heart attacks.
