Entry definition

Arschkarte etymology unknown. According to a popular urban legend, the origin of this term can be found in soccer, more exactly the red card. Since on black-and-white televisions the yellow and red card could not be distinguished, the yellow card was held in the front pocket, while the referee pulled the red card from his butt.

  1. (colloquial) bad luck
