The best is the derivation of the word -- see below!

From Mirriam-Websters Online (m-w.com):

Main Entry: pum·per·nick·el
Pronunciation: 'p&m-p&r-"ni-k&l
Function: noun
Etymology: German, from pumpern to break wind + Nickel goblin; from its reputed indigestibility
: a dark coarse sourdough bread made of unbolted rye flour


So does that mean pumpernickel is German for goblin farts?!
Isnt he that singer Engelbert Pumpernickle

Bill Cosby mentioned that as a funny-sounding word in one of his old standup routines.
