message Eines noch, was mir gerade aufgefallen ist. Ich glaube, bzgl. des Bildtitel meintest Du im Englischen "piggyback", also Deutsch "huckepack".

message Hallo Thomas,
vielen dank für dein feedback. Mir ist pick-a-back als huckepack bekannt, und so weist es auch der Langenscheidt aus. Piggyback ist eine Verballhornung dieses Begriffs.
Wikkipedia schreibt dazu: "Piggyback is a corruption of pickaback, which is likely a folk etymology alteration of pick pack, which perhaps is from pick, a dialectal variant of pitch."
Trotzdem vielen Dank für den Hinweis. Wo man sich überall so trifft... unsure
LG
