How the Norsk/Dansk split occurred (funny video)

(as explained by Norwegians)

The rest I can cope with, but Danish numbers make me want to cry.

En søt historie :)

Original Video.

And regarding the Danish number system, I don't know what you mean! It's simple! "5 plus half before 3 times twenty" and then shorten it into something that just sounds like "five and half sixty", simple!

Just via a friend. He prefers Swedish and hates the sound of Danish (which I personally find quite charming - the sound of Danish, I mean), and knows I more readily speak Norwegian, hence the share :)
