Extrawurst

Extrawurst: When someone receives special treatment, Germans will say they “get an extra sausage”

We always talk about an Extrawurst when someone demands—or actually receives—an inappropriate privilege.

Nullachtfünfzehn

Nullachtfünfzehn: When something is very average and not worth talking about, Germans say it's “zero eight fifteen”

Germans use this word to describe something that is downright boring due to its plainness and really doesn’t lure anyone out from behind the stove.

Backpfeifengesicht

Backpfeifengesicht ("cheek whistle face"): Someone who makes you feel the desire to punch him in the face just by looking at him

Backpfeifengesicht is a perfect example of creative insults that the German language has on offer. It is highly effective, yet innocent enough to not have you bleeped out.

Vorglühen

Vorglühen: To have some drinks before a party with a few close friends

“Vorglühen” usually takes place at the home of whoever lives closest to the party. The trick is to get just that tiny bit tipsy without feeling drunk yet.
