Lentokonesuihkuturbiinimoottoriapumekaanikkoaliupseerioppilas 
According to Wikipedia this means "airplane jet turbine engine auxiliary mechanic non-commissioned officer student". That sounds ridiculous even in English. "Lentokonesuihkuturbiinimoottoriapumekaanikkoaliupseerioppilas" is said to be the longest Finnish word at 61 letters, however that is arguable because you could make up any word you wanted in Finnish really. Let's see what you get if you break it down, translate the words into English, and then put it back together.
Aeroplaneshowerturbinemotorhelpmechanicnoncommissionedofficerstudent.  68 Letters! English wins! And it'd funnier because it says "helpme" right in the middle.

Overbuljongterningpakkmesterassistent was a made up word of measly 37 letters, it's grammatically perfectly fine, used in a song in Norwegian which was popular years ago.

(Literally, “chief bouillon cube packaging master assistant”, or something like that.) And that English example above, would actually be correct in Norwegian. :) (And German, and Danish, and Swedish, and...)
