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:

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.

I found a brochure about Denmark in the Nordic Library of Helsinki. One of the writers described Danish as something that most closely resembles a throat illness. I found that hilarious x) But also true.

P.S. I love that the North Americans eat breakfast together.

I think "røgede ørreder" should be the default "Danish-Test". It barely sounds like anything understandable, and literally sounds like we have something stuck in the throat.

Wasn't squirrel a anti-spy countermeasure during WW2? Saw it once on TV that they found a few german spys thanks to this damn hard word xD
