Kummerspeck: the weight you gain from overeating due to emotional stress or trauma. A German word that translates literally as "grief bacon".
Ah, those Germans! And can you think of a country that would be more appropriate place, culinarily speaking, to put on said kummerspeck?
When you're depressed and want to console yourself with food, let's face it, tapas, ratatouille or haggis just don't fit the bill.
Noodles, potatoes, butter, bacon and sausage....oooooh, I feel better already.
(Anyone close enough to where Fetch works to run over and mop up that big puddle of drool?)
