Random German words

After exactly one week in German class, here are some random German words of which I've grown fond:

kaputt--broken
der Luftpirat—hijacker (of aircraft)
der Spargel—asparagus
die Brombeere--blackberry
der Schnabel—beak
die Dunkelkammer—dark room
der Stau—traffic jam

& last but not least,
zusammenklappen—to fold up (a chair, etc.)
How’s that for a mouthful?!

My favorite German word has always been Schmetterling - butterfly.

At the fair I thought the "E" was out on the Pirate Ship ride, but maybe the carneys were just German!
