German Of The Day: Vollspacko

That means “complete dumbass,” or something along those lines. And this guy below should know. When to use the term, I mean.

Vollspacko

“I only landed tenth place on Playboy’s Man of the Year! That’s nine places behind that complete dumbass Böhermann,” Till Schweiger wrote on Facebook.

And that, I think, is probably one of the most intelligent things I’ve ever heard Till Schweiger say.

„Beim Playboy bin ich auf auf Platz Zehn gelandet! 9 Plätze hinter dem Vollspacko Böhmermann.“

Eclipse Faked By Jan Böhmermann

That was the sunniest damned eclipse I ever saw, people. What a dud. I think it was faked by Jan Böhmermann.

The row (about the Varoufakis flip off video) took a fresh twist on Wednesday evening when satirical programme Neo Magazin Royale, on a rival channel, claimed that it had doctored the video and uploaded it to the internet.

Host Jan Böhmermann claimed his team had used digital editing software to insert the indecent gesture. Then it showed another clip it said was the original, in which Mr Varoufakis made the same remarks but without the gesture. A regretful Mr Böhmermann told his audience they were behind the “fake” Stinkefinger footage.

It didn’t take long, however, until the fake was itself revealed as a fake.

„Dieser Witz hat nie stattgefunden.”
