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:

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
