and what does it mean?
August 19th, 2017
Not for the first time, I find myself wishing that English (or German) had a word as expressive as the Dutch “mierenneuker”.
a nit is a louse’s egg, nitpicker seems to be related to the ants in mierenneuker…. 🤔
Nitpicker, but literally translated it means “ant fucker”.
I think there is a german word that would work quite nicely, it’s “Korinthenkacker”. (Did I just fuck an ant as well?)
The infinite German vocabulary universe - Korinthenkacker, Furzklemmer, Dibbelschisser, Tüpflischiisser. German seems to be anal rententive.
“Eizenficker” i believe in German, no?
french: enculeur de mouches
