20 December 2012: Pickelfresse

20 Dec: Pickelfresse from kate hers on Vimeo.

Location: Berlin, Germany

Word or Expression: Pickelfresse

Closest English Translation: Pizzaface

Literal Translation: Pimple mug, Pimple face (feeder)

Note:
Fressen means to feed. Fresse is another impolite word for face, since that is where one eats. So, although Germans don’t have this image in their mind, I always think of a pimple eater when I hear this word.
