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)

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.
