Obama is in Town


America’s excuse is that he is worst kind of republican ever. :XD:

Denmark saying, "The master negro" needs some explaining.

The Danish words for "downer" ("nedern") and "the negro" ("negern") sound very alike. That has hilarious results when people from certain parts of the country try to say, "That’s such a downer". These poor people are not being racist. They just mean to say “downer” and it comes out as "the negro" because of their dialect.

On top of that we often use the word "master" instead of "very". ("That was master cool!")

So if people with a certain dialect want to say that something is "Very much a downer" it comes out as "It’s the master negro".

It's hilarious. :XD:

*le reads the description*
.... *is registered as a Democrat but is actually an independent(what, no one in the independent party ever runs for president, so if I were registered as an independent, I would rarely get to vote!)* .... There should be SAtW characters for political parties from different countries....

Actually, we don't really say "master". I think you're referring to "mega", coz that's something we say A LOT more.
I'd replace "the master negro" with "the mega negro".
I have never heard a Dane saying something like "det var mestersejt" (that was master cool). What I hear is "det var megasejt" (that was mega cool).
Just sayin'.

I guess Humon is from Jutland, because in the accent spoken in Copenhagen, "nedern" and "negern" do not sound alike.
