A Sad Day (Ein Trauriger Tag)

Back in 2007, we told you about a gloriously long, German word, while reviewing Lincoln Rd's Hofbrau Haus -

But my friend, Andreas Roman Heiss, who knows his German sh*t, just emailed me this devastasting news -

Germany's longest word - Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz - a 63-letter long title of a law regulating the testing of beef, has officially ceased to exist.
