German Word of the Day (5): Der Kabelsalat (Tangled wires)

4 years ago
"Der Kabelsalat" (tangled wires) is not a salad to eat. I think nearly all of us- tutors and students - know the chaos of cables from eletronic devices. They build a ´creative´confusion of wires under the desk or in the room - that´s what we call the "Kabelsalat".

What is a typical or widespread idiom in your language?
