hard to explain but easy to spot

There is a term used in German that describes narrow-minded, pettifogging people. Using the word for plaid cloth with small checks for a simile: kleinkariert. If said with an Austrian accent, it sounds like: klakariad. And someone not like that would be ka klakariada. Which is the title of a song by Attwenger, I happened upon just now. It brightened up my morning all of a sudden. As I know a couple of people just like that. I have to work with them. And their Hausverstand, too. Common sense, my arse.
