My new favourite Catalan word. La meva nova paraula preferida en català

Pixatinters.

That would be literally an ink-pisser, or what we might call a pen-pusher, or a beurocrat.
En anglès seria un pen-pusher (algú qui empenta un boli) o un funcionari.

Pixatinters.

Love it.  Me l'encanta.

Far too lovely a word for a bureaucrat – makes me think of magical creatures in a fairy tale.

Oh my, I do know me plenty of pixatinters. Such a more elegant word than what we have in the north american lexicon!

I have to agree with Beth, it does sound fairy-tale-ish :D
