tee hee

The German word for velvet is Samt. The German word (well, phrase) for corduroy is gerippter Samt. So says http://dict.leo.org/ . I am duly amused.

(If you're wondering, I looked this word up because I got spam from arbeitsamt.de, and wondered what that meant. I'm pretty sure it meant "Arbeit samt" rather than "Arbeit Samt" though.)

And now I will do actual work.
