A gob in search of a smacking

From Welcome to Germany comes today's word of the day, Backpfeifengesicht. And what a welcome it would be:

The word Backpfeife means "punch/slap" (on the cheek/face) and Gesicht means "face"

So a Backpfeifengesicht is pretty much a face in search of a fist. I'm sure we all know such a face. I recommend restraint. Try repeating "Backpfeifengesicht" under your breath over and over again until the urge passes. Pronunciation guide and other trivia here:
