Google translate claims it is Nasty Fat Friend's Fetuses. Does that gel with the spirit of the word combination as the title reads in German?

Fette Freunde, Fette Feten

Fat Friends, fat parties

Fat is synonymous with good or über

So maybe

über-friends, über-parties

Thank you both for your quick responses! Does the word 'feten' mean both parties and fetuses? Is fetus a slang term for party?

Fetus is a German (latin?) word meaning the same as in English.

Fête is frech for party and used as Fete is German. Also used in (British) English according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F%C3%AAte)

Edit: We are completly off topic here, do we need to move to some other forum for this?

fetus: singular Fötus or Fetus, plural Föten / Feten
slang for party: singular Fete, plural Feten

Not at all off-topic. Fetus is how google translate interprets feten. Anyone who makes a similar inquiry will likely be similarly curious. Language is well within the bounds of this topic.

I've ton a bit of tinkering to maintain the alliteration and general sense of the German, in English:
Filthy Friends, Fresh Functions
(the word for party could also be Fetes or Festivities, but I prefer the multiple meanings of Functions.)

Regarding the title „Feten“ never meant anything else than party. „Fete“ is a quite old fashioned word now but has been commonly used by teenagers in the eighties.

Incidentally, what would the title be in Esperanto?

Possibly: Senhontaj amikoj mojosaj fieroj.
But I think there are better translations.

How about "Fat Fun with Freaky Friends"?
