Don't let this video discourage you from learning Danish

I've loved this video since I saw it a couple years ago.

Warning: Don't attempt to learn Danish from this video.

If you ever run into a Norwegian as a Dane, then he will most likely (like 90% of the times) suggest that you watch this video.... Norwegians love hating on our beautiful language! :P

I've yet to meet a Swede or a Norwegian who, when they discover I'm learning Danish, hasn't suddenly become very smug and said "You know...snigger...in Scandinavia, we say that the Danes...more sniggering...talk like they have a potato in their mouth." They will proceed to burst out laughing, but then stop and then wonder why I've not joined in.

Yes, it may be slightly accurate, but when you've heard the joke for the twentieth time that week, it gets old pretty quickly... :P

Anyway, I do enjoy that sketch. :)

Typisk norsk humor :) Søk på "team antonsen" (på youtube) for flere gullkorn...
