That picture... It's the same as that one posted a while back when there was an earth quake in the US. Something about how there was a major one and in other places there was barely a rumble.

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."

Please = venligst

Would you please hand me the butter.

Ræk mig venligst smørret din dumme ko.
User avatar #67 to #45 - angelwithashotgun (06/15/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #82 to #45 - vincetacular (06/15/2014) [-]
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).

Venligst translates to kindly, not please =)
User avatar #85 to #45 - abstractpink (06/15/2014) [-]
Vi har ikke et direkte ord for "please"

"Will you hand me the remote? Please?"

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

Venligst på engelsk er "kindly"
User avatar #169 to #85 - scizzor (06/15/2014) [-]
"Be om"

"Vil du være så venlig at række mig smøret, be om."

>will you hand me the remote PLEASE

>vil du VENLIGST række mig fjernbetjeningen

nope, still venligst ************
User avatar #171 to #165 - abstractpink (06/15/2014) [-]
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.
User avatar #283 to #171 - besle (06/15/2014) [-]
Burde ordet ikke være bedes?

"De bedes række mig fjernbetjeningen"

"De bedes flytte dem"

Norwegians, Danish and finnish people would agree on this. Hell, we even make jokes about sweden. Here is one: How do you sink a sweedish submarine? You knock on the door
#207 to #199 - areandara (06/15/2014) [-]
swedish-speaking finns joke about norwegians the same way swedes do. But swedes are still considered quite gay and we joke about them as well

Every country jokes about every country, those exact same jokes exist in Swedish language. Example: The Norwegian to his wife: "Honey, I heard it was gonna snow tomorrow on the radio. Well you better cover the radio then."

Sweden is known for lots of immigrants, particularly muslims.
User avatar #233 to #95 - northleech (06/15/2014) [-]
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"
#352 to #233 - alexanderh (06/15/2014) [-]
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.
