In this game, contestants tell us if something is a real or fake SkyMall product.

Sprechen Sie Deutsch? Part Zwei

Aug 12, 2016

The German language has a lot of long, crazily specific words. For example, "kummerspeck" literally means "grief bacon," and refers to the weight you gain from eating your feelings.
