A sentence you can use in everyday life :)

All these bear sentences are created to drive us crazy with the similarity of bjørn and børn...

Goldilocks grew up and the bears came to visit her...

Am I the only one who doesn't know what a garden chair is? Is it a UK English name for outdoor/lawn furniture?

I've always known it as a garden chair, so it could be European english

Garden chair sounds OK to me and I'm a Brit.

I don't know the English word either, but in Danish it is an chair build for being in a garden.

Which makes complete sense, but it's certainly not a phrase I've ever heard.

Given the images found by a Google search, I'm going to go ahead and think of it as what we (US) call a "lawn chair".

It's not a real bear. It's just Anders Lund Madsen.

And the saga continues.
