Funniest sentences in the Norwegian course

Hei alle sammen!
I thought we should collect all the sentences that made us laugh during the course! Here are some I have found:

Ulven spiser meg. (The wolf is eating me.)
Sauer spiser bøker. (Sheep eat books.)
Mauren liker edderkoppen. (The ant likes the spider.)

Feel free to add screenshots or just quote the sentence with the translation! Let's laugh a bit. :)
