I'm so glad you discovered that the German language has more to offer than just the usually cited examples of "Weltschmerz", "Doppelgänger", etc. I believe that it's terms like "Ohrwurm" or maybe also "Dorftrottel" (village idiot) which should become internationally known. Germans need to get rid of that serious and always-deep-in-thought mode and image - support them!


OK! George W. Bush is a dorftrottel -- how's that?
