Language Lesson



Denmark wanted America to say this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQkvqJJvR9U because Danes love to make foreigners say it.

All the other Nordic countries joke that Danish sounds like Swedes talking with a potato or porridge in their mouths, while Danes joke that Swedes sound like drunk Danes, and Norwegians sound like drunk Danes singing. :XD:

Québécois is a wonderful mix of Quebec specific french and weird English suppositions...like "on y go á la bar man?" When I first started learning French too, my friend told me to pronounce something like bière, you just have to pretend like you are vomiting a little. C'est majestueux!

My Canadian neighbors like to joke that Quebecois is basically an extremely drunk American trying and failing to speak French.

In Faroe Islands, we joke that Danish sounds like someone puking while talking. A good example would be "Hvaaaad".
As for Swedish and Norwegian... it just sounds like really bad Danish

And last but not least... Icelandic sounds like broken Faroese, which we find absolutely hilarous

WAIT this is the first time I realize that the cornflake boxes are the border between USA and Mexico! The darn comic is four years old... I'm not very clever, it seems.
