The swedish rabbit was running over the Norwegian border, on his way he saw rabbit running into sweden. The swedish rabbit asked "Why are you running to Sweden it's rabbit season here?"
The Norwegian rabbit responded "Well it's elk season here."
Then the swedish rabbit said "But you're a rabbit not an elk."
The Norwegian rabbit replied "Say that to the norwegians."

It's funny, because people who say that and usually say how bad it is are not the Swedes. What a strange coincidence. Don't get me wrong, there are objectively a lot of immigrants in Sweden, but the ones whining are people on Funnyjunk who want to have a comeback to "success breeds jealousy"

Hey, I'm not saying I know whether there's a lot of immigrants in Sweden, and I certainly don't think it's a bad thing if there is. I was just stating the fact that Sweden is fairly known for having a lot of muslim immigrants. Which is true.

Venligst = kindliest

You can't say Venligst in the same way that you would say please. They have similar meaning, but they don't translate to each other, in the same way that imagination and fantasy are similar, but distinctly different.

Venligst would instead translate to kindliest. In your sentence, we don't actually have an exact equivalent, so we instead use a phrase more akin to "would you kindly hand me the butter"

A better translation for please, in this context, would be "være venlig at", which would make the sentence:

Vil du være venlig at række mig smørret.

Maybe they mixed up Danish with Finnish which indeed doesn't have a word for please as far as I'm aware (lived there for a year only so maybe they just don't use it).

Vi har ikke et direkte ord for "please"

Så bliver det lige pludselig to "bede om" istedet for "venligst"

Venligst på engelsk er "kindly"

Det kommer an på hvordan du siger det. Uanset hvad, så er "please" et ord du kan bruge i flere sammenhæng end "venligst", og venligst betyder "kindly".

Vi har ikke et direkte ord for please, vi har et par ord som vi bruger istedet.
