What is the funniest thing you have come across on Duolingo
I am just curious, what is the funniest thing you have come across on Duolingo? I have been learning Spanish, and I have come across a few funny terms such as "I am a spider", "I am a duck, I speak English", the Spiders eat birds", etc. (I know I know, I seem to have an animal theme going on here) Have a great day everyone!
All this in the norwegian course:
Du spiser min hunds mat (You are eating my dog's food)
Du drikker min katts melk (You are drinking my cat's milk) Someone really likes animal food.
Katten vet hva dere gjør (The cats knows what you are doing) This is a psycho cat.
Storebror ser deg (Big Brother is watching you). An orwellian phrase.
Det røde bryllupet (The red wedding). A sad one :(

I remember that sentence. I wrote to my friend in Mexico about it. This is what I wrote to him about it:
"Anyway, I am doing Spanish today on Duolingo. One sentence I have so far is "Mi hermana es vieja, pero yo soy joven. " The word "vieja" is like "vielle" in French. For "young" it is "jeune" in French so it is similar."
This is what he replied about it:
To say "Mi hermana es vieja" is rude, at least for me. There are other ways to say it tactfully like "Mi hermana está grande" or maybe "Mi hermana es mayor".
