I had written some other stuff on this topic, then I googled and found something I'd forgotten about: there's a character named Scheisskopf in Joseph Heller's novel Catch-22, which is a very popular and widely read book.

Who's to say that the word won't enter the German lexicon over the next couple hundred years? Words are always flowing between languages and being updated by pop culture.
