I was watching Pokémon: Indigo League on Netflix and the Pokédex called Kakuna a “transitional Pokémon”
and then suddenly this happened
I know collectively these are all old but I figured I’d just throw these together into a photoset just ‘cause. *o*

actual german compound nouns:
Staubsauger (vaccuum cleaner, literally “DUST SUCKER”)
Vorhang (curtain, literally “HANGS IN FRONT”)
Wasserkocher (kettle, literally “WATER BOILER”)
I smile every time I remember German birth control pills are called “antibabypillen”. Though in the interest of fairness, “fireplace”.
