    What is the strangest sentence you have been asked to translate on Duolingo? Mine is: Why does he have such a fascination for death?

    "Crime fell after the chicken became prime minister"

    From the norwegian course xD

    "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.

              This sentence from Spanish is actually one I got yesterday:

              "Los gatos beben cualquier cosa, desde leche hasta cerveza."

              Literally, "The cats drink anything, from milk to beer".
