In the Norwegian course, the mayor is a chicken. He is obviously not liked, as he gets killed. He is mentioned many times along the way, and has an interesting story.

The bear wears a shirt so it'll have a warm winter! It is protected against wind and cold!

I typed in:The bear wears the shirt, but the autocorrect changed it to: The bear wars the shirt, and it counted it wrong.
