I am going to pretend that this is a Roe v. Wade story and share something that I ran across last night on Reddit. The German word for contraceptive is Antibabypille. I was pretty sure this was a joke until I looked it up on a German to English dictionary site.
It is even more chilling when you add “the”: Die Antibabypille.
There are other words for contraceptives but that is clearly the most descriptive.
It is even easier to say that the word for the regulation on beef labeling: Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz
