What IS that? I watched for about 3 minutes and I could feel my IQ going down. It wasn't real series, was it? Was it a spoof?

Can we use "Altfor mange kokker"?

That would be the translation of "way/far/all too many cooks".

The "alt" in "altfor" acts like an intensifier.

How am I supposed to know this? This is the 1st time I'm seeing "too" and the hints give me 2 options out of which one is incorrect.

You're not expected to know everything - you're here to learn, after all. :)

Now you know both what is the appropriate translation in this context, and that there is (at least) one other translation which would be applicable in other contexts.

What is the difference between til and for? I'm unclear on when to use which.
