Scheißenbedauern? Never heard that.

Backpfeifengesicht (German) A face that cries out for a fist in it.

A face that cries to be slapped unconscious. Here in the great bavarian-speaking lands, we call that "Watschnpappn".

Watschnpappn
only two vowels, you funny people you.
that's more like the funny sound you make when you are seriously serious dehydrated and try to ask for water.
