I will never buy pumpernickel again. I can’t even order ‘moons over my hammy’ at Denny’s because of the embarrassing sound of those words. And today I learned that pumpernickel translates to ‘flatulent nick‘.
Pumper is an old German word for a fart and nickel is German for ‘nick’. Old Nick is often used as a nickname for the devil so the actual translation should be something like ‘devil fart’. It earned its name because it is hard to digest.
I know you don’t believe me so look it up yourself.
