Product Pairing


Written Norwegian and Danish are so similar that on the back of products that has a description in several languages, Norwegian and Danish are usually mixed together, and the few words that a written differently are separated with a “/”. So “I love you” would look like this on the back of a product:

SE (Swedish): Jag älskar dig.
FI (Finnish): Minä rakastan sinua.
DK/NO: Jeg elsker dig/deg.

I’ve never thought about it before, but it was pointed out to me a few weeks ago that DK/NO looks like someone was writing a paring, like Harry/Draco. I haven’t been able to unsee it since. :XD:

"The awkwardness of this realization is just as delicious as I imagined it would be!"
Me: *Dies of laughter*

Sometimes it's DK/NO/SW, though. I guess sister Sweden joins in occationally.

The other day I saw Swedish, Norwegian and Danish mixed on one of those things.
Felt pretty weird, especially since it was actually just Swedish.

Does Ottowa perpetually have a ? floating above his/her head as part of his/her design or something?

Sweden really does enjoy the awkward situations between Denmark and Norway.
