Mark Twain had a point or: Size matters

Idly leafing through my local adult education center's brochure the other day, I came across the announcement of a beginner's web-design course containing the not exactly short word Windowsanwenderkenntnisse*.
the longer, the better! (onemorehandbag)What a German "sausage" of a word! Mark Twain's comments about the - arguably - awful German language are still valid and much as I love the poignancy and briskness of English, I think there's a beauty to these long winded tongue-twisters, too.
