Willst du mich veräppeln?

Hello guys, i just wanna know whether "veräppeln" is actually a bad word. Some say it is and some say it isn't. Is there anyone able to give me an ultimate answer?

"Veräppeln" just means "pull someone's leg". It is a colloquial word, but I don't think it's a bad word. I wouldn't use it in a conversation with my boss, or in other formal contexts, but otherwise I find it OK.

Here's the LEO entry: https://dict.leo.org/german-english/ver%C3%A4ppeln

Schwester, actually. :-) (And "Bruder" and "Schwester" aren't used in German as "bro" is used in US English ...)

You're welcome. :-)
