Yup it is true! We Scandinavians have some absolutely bizarre sayings. Take the Swedish `Skita i det bla skapet', which translates as `You've done a poop in the blue cupboard' (`You've messed things up now'). When you've really put your foot in it, the Danes might say: `Traede i spinaten' ('step in the spinach'). And in Norway, you don’t want to be `born behind a brown cheese' (`A vaere fodt bak en brunost'). 50 phrases you never knew you needed in your life, with origins, literal translations, and colour illustrations throughout.
Fun and enjoyable book, great entertainment.
