A Little Humour For A Miserable Day

Today (Saturday) is grey and it has rained for over 24 hours. It’s also at least one jumper (sweater) warmer than recently, which means the snow is melting, leaving large puddles on the ice, so it’s very slippery.

Anyway, here is a little bit of humour I’ve been saving for a rainy day:

Language Problems

Norway has a famous rally driver who is quite well know for his excellent driving, and not so excellent mixing of Norwegian and English (is that Nenglish?). For example:, It’s not the fart that kills, it’s the smell”. In Norwegian “fart” = speed and “smell” = crash).

Along the same lines, I took this photo in the local shops today:


A Norwegian tourist visits London hails a taxi. He opens the door to what he thinks is the passenger side, but is surprised to find the driver sitting there. The tourist says, “I’m sorry, but in my country the rat is on the other side”. In Norwegian “steering wheel” = ratt.

And to close, here is a video. Some of you may already have seen this, but it’s still funny:
