Funny and weird German words – my personal selection – part 2

Remember my last article with funny and weird German words? As I promised I follow up on it and add a couple more. I could go on like that forever as I come across such words all the time but I guess too much of that is just… too much and everyone has to discover them for themselves.

verhonepiepeln – who comes up with words like that?
der Tunichtgut – funny how a noun is created from verb and adverb parts
das Larifari – don’t mistake it for safari!
Muffensausen kriegen – it even sounds scaaary!
ausbaldowern – it just kinda looks like a spelling mistake…
hanebüchen – take special care of this one! It’s almost extinct!
der Dreikäsehoch – three cheeses tall? what a lovely description for a kid!
der Spargeltarzan – Asparagus Tarzan –just cute!
der Muckefuck – what the …? Don’t think anything vulgar, it’s just… coffee

I hope that by listing those I inspired at least one person to go on a quest for funny and weird (not only) German words. Have fun doing that and as always: I would be very happy if you shared them with me in the comments!
