New word of the week

World Wide Words is always a good read - this weeks newsletter (one week ahead of the web page) introduces us to this useful word:

"Drachenfutter",
"dragon fodder", the peace offering German husbands make to their wives when they have engaged in some inappropriate behaviour.

Comments

Gotta love the Germans - the only people on earth to have a special word for laughing at somebody when something bad happens to them.
