Riddle of the week: What can travel around the world yet stays in a corner? (answer below)
What I have learned: That according to a tweet by Greenpeace UK ‘The oil age is ending, renewables are the future!’
And for something different:
Our GERMAN WORD OF THE WEEK goes to: das Stinktier (skunk)
Germans love to make compound nouns by sticking two nouns together like the above example. Tier is animal and Stink is obvious – put them together and you have…Stink Animal. The logic that Germans are so famous for even applies to their language.
Another example is the word for glove – der Handschuh. It’s a shoe for the hand!
Answer: A stamp!
That’s all, hope you had a good weekend
