  1. *Eine Backpfeife
    It is female in German, too
    Even funnier is how the word is a compound word of back and pfeife. Where first one roughly means ‘bake’ from ‘baking’ and the second is a ‘whistle’. So if you want to really delve deep into it you would have to translate as Baking-Whistle-Face.
