Word of the Day: Backpfeifengesicht

Today's word was stolen from a Cracked.com article, "The 10 Coolest Foreign Words the English Language Needs", which I highly recommend. However, today's word is so fitting for Urkobold that we will not only make it a Word of the Day, we will also adopt it as a tag:
back·pfeif·en·ge·sicht

-noun (German)
1. A face that cries out for a fist in it.
Pictured: A professional portrayer of the backpfeifengesicht.
Warning! This man is a highly trained professional. Do not try this at home!

So I'm looking at that picture, trying to figure out where I know that guy from. After a minute, I think that's the guy from Real Genius, then I think, no, that's the guy from Ghostbusters. It turns out I'm both right.
He had quite a run as the go-to arrogant jerk guy, eh?

Indeed Highnumber, indeed. At first I thought he was the douchebag 80's guy from the first "Die Hard". I almost punched my screen before I noticed I was mistaken.

He's William Atherton, and he's the king of portraying smarmy pricks.

I decided to go with a non-political image, as tempting as some of our current politicians are for this word (Sean Hannity was another thought--he's got the smug ass look down to a science).

Oh shit! He was the reporter dude in "Die Hard!

*slaps self in head*

Naga - I thought you were kidding the way high# was!

Pro Libertate said...

Really, now, this giant of smarmy character acting deserves better than this. He's a god in the asshole portrayal category and shall not be mocked. Except by Bill Murray and Val Kilmer, that is.

VM,

I've been busy for the last month or two. The pressure is getting to me apparently. Total mental lapse!

VM said...

How about some nice monkey adult entertainment to relax you?

Every time I think humanity can't shock me, it shocks me.

Atherton was also in "Class of '44" as a snobbish fraternity brother.
