Adding to the Vocabulary...

I learned a new word today.   Here it is (hold on to your hats): Pferdewirtshaftsmeister!!

Beg Pardon?!?  Or, rather, Gesundheit!!  *Snort Giggle*

Seriously, I read this on the COTH forum and immediately fell in love with it.  Couldn't pronounce it, had NO CLUE what it meant, but by crikey, I LIKED IT!

The forum did not provide any definitions, so off I trundled to my favorite Online Translator.  Here's what it came up with: Horse landlord custody master.  I pretty much chopped this down to Horse Master.  Okeydokey, that's one I can understand. 

However, Horse Master is not half as much fun to say.  Try saying Pferdewirtshaftsmeister.  I double dog dare you.  If you're not fluent in German (as I'm not) you might sound like the Swedish Chef from the Muppets (as I did).

Today was what you could call a down and out crappy day.  It's better now, all because of Pferdewirtshaftsmeister. 

Go ahead and say it, and try not to smile.  I double dog dare you!

  1. Well I messed up the no smile thing right off the bat; by laughing out loud when I tried to spit out that 600 letter word. I didn't just mangle it - I slaughtered it (as in doornail dead with exponents ;o)
    P.S. Here's hoping today is a better day.
    P.P.S. I LOVE the Swedish Chef!
