Is this a normal responsibility for secretaries in Denmark?

Lawyer here. Afraid not.

Is this another joke about lawyers?

It's a dirty business.

No, it's a running gag on Duo Danish lessons about washing your coworkers.

Believe me, after a week of corporate litigation, all you need is a sunny Saturday afternoon, a bucket of soapy water, a decent firm brush, and a garden hose. Otherwise, after a few weeks, they start to look pretty bad.

I've already come across a similar sentence, where the mayor washed the secretary and, according to some people, secretary meant a piece of furniture. But now, we have here the undeniable proof that it's about a man having a nice time at the office. Duolingo, your sentences are totally inappropriate! I'm really disappointed with you.

It could have been a female lawyer and male secretary! Or both male employees -- oooo la la!

Better than the beer drinking bears.

How about more sentences that make sense, it´s difficult enough to translate these sentences, why make them so absurd? Just asking

You sir apparently do not have the life goal to be a lawyer and be washed by your secretary but respect those of us who need this phrase

It's done on purpose so sentences strike your attention and your brain is more likely to retain them. :)
