    Translation is fun. The German word for lighter, "Feuerzeug", translates literally as "fire thing". Other fun examples are "Warteschlange" for queue ("waiting snake") and "Glühbirne" for light bulb ("glow pear").

    I lived in Germany for a few years. My kids (and me secretly) found it funny whenever we were told to have a "gute fahrt"

    gute fahrt = good ride = good journey or safe journey.

    And also the German for television "Fernseher" which translates something like "Far away see-er" IIRC?

    Great language.
