backpfeifengesicht

According to blorky, this is a German word meaning "a face that cries out for a fist in it." My google translation said that it actually means "baking whistling face," but I like blorky's definition better. I'm not sure how to use it in a sentence, though. ("Geez, lookit that guy -- he sure has a backpfeifengesicht, dontcha think?" I dunno...)

grammardog just started a great meme by turning off the IP logging on her LJ and inviting people to make anonymous posts to that entry about anything they wanted to. The results were fun to read, as was  the very funny chat excerpt she put up afterwards.

Anyway, I'm gonna just copy her outright (hey, what's a meme for, after all?) and invite everyone to do the same thing to this entry here. IP logging and comment screening is turned off, so do what you will! If you want a response to your comment though, you'll have to remember to come back to this post because you won't get anything e-mailed back automatically through LJ.

(Oh, my. kumaraka just posted a very funny page showing Tom Cruise killing Oprah.)

The Germans have a word for everything. My pesonal favorite would be "schadenfreude": pleasure taken from someone else's misfortune.



I'm a nice person, I swear.

It was my understanding that "backpfeife" means roughly "slap in the face"... I think the "back" here is more likely short for "backe" which is cheek.
