Last week while I was in a lecture about proteins and proteomics, I learnt a new German word!
I think it might be my new favourite!
As you can guess from the picture, our little Eierlegende friend is a pig-cow-chicken-sheep hybrid.
Literally, an ‘egglaying wool-milk-pig’.
The English version is ‘jack-of-all-trades’, but who even uses that anymore?
Here, the Deutsch triumphs! Although apparently it’s not really a very flattering thing to be called.
