Long

You get 'long words' 'cause you is all erudite-like and then you get 'long words' 'cause you is just too lazy to put spaces between lots of short words. I found myself taking umbrage at the fact that this BBC article about German word-pruning seems incapable of distinguishing between the two.

But the article got me to thinking about another language we all know and love, including this (I'd thought apocryphal) place name, and that led me to this. I'm a little too lazy to do a final tally but when it comes to teh crazy-long I think the language we all know and love is right up there.
