    "Ett får får en ren ren" - A sheep gets a clean reindeer.

    Since it's almost winter a very important advice:
    "Ät inte gul snö!" - Don't eat yellow snow!

    Edited to add these that just came up in my lesson:
    "Titta, en flygande ko!" - Look, a flying cow!"
    "Det är svårt att komma på en passande mening." - It is difficult to come up with a suitable sentence. (thanks to the awesome contributors and their honesty!)
    "Jag är en talande älg." - I am a talking moose.
