Don't be too hard on them. They're new to the American version of Halloween and get a bit confused about some of the things.

They're dressed in different types of costumes: sexy, scary, and fandom.

Only the most necessary

Only the most necessary

I assumed a pool was only for the very wealthy and got confused at all the pictures of swimming pools from America, so my friend who practically grew up in the US and still visits the states every year joked that getting a pool is very high on Americans' list of things they need in their life.

"They make sure they have a house, a bed, food, and then a pool"

Have a safe trip home

Have a safe trip home

This was a way to get rid of unwanted guests in Iceland back in the day.

Feed them poisonous shark that hadn't been fermented quite long enough, then send them stumbling in the direction of the nearest lava.

The Scots voted on their independence, and though they voted no, the no supporters only won with 55,4% making it almost a tie.

Office Pet

Office Pet

In China you can make a living just from being white. Just sit around at an office/meeting/bar/you name it and be white, all because white people are pretty rare and exotic in China.

These people are often referred to as "pets" because they are told what to do and how to dress, but have no real purpose other than to hang around and just exist, yet cost money.

In Sweden the number 6 is spelled "sex" and I've spent a few conventions with Norwegians giggling about it while disappointed Swedes looked on.

Edit: Damn, I was sure I had checked all the ways the Nordics spell 6 but apparently I missed Iceland. Oh well, maybe he was just optimistic and hoped it was about actual sex.
