German squaddie-speak!

Whoever thought that Krauts in general have no sense of humour should get a load of this site:

It's squaddie humour at its finest. Particular gems are:

Aufklatscher - landing with a smack - paratrooper.
Bärenfotze - bear's fanny - fur-lined winter hat.
Cafe Eichmann - I love this one, it describes the CS-gas chamber.
Disco-Litze - decoration on officers' epaulettes.
Handbagger - literally hand-operated/sized JCB - folding shovel.
Tupperteil - G36, because of the many plastic parts.

Enjoy!
