The German language has some rather colourful terms for describing parts of the human body. Turn to The Local List this week for a few anatomical alternatives.

While English has plenty of phrases to describe our extra folds of flesh, including bingo wings and muffin tops, Germans tend to err on the meatier side – “Kummerspeck” being a firm favourite here at The Local.
