It is not Denglish, but much rather a Pseudo-Anglicism, although this may not be entirely correct either. The term body bag is not exclusive to Germany or the German language when it comes to describing a (fashionable) backpack. See for example the Pear-Shaped Body Bag, this site or this English retailer. British sites often refer to this kind of apparel as across body bag or sling body bag. Does anyone have a reputable source that explicitly says that this specific use of the term is a Pseudo-Anglicism? --Berolina 17:17, 10 April 2007 (UTC)
