PostSubject: YOU KNOW YOU'VE BEEN IN DENMARK TOO LONG, WHEN...   Fri Feb 26, 2010 4:44 pm

Just thought i'd share a funny list with you guys. Maybe you'll understand why i'm so weird Suspect

YOU KNOW YOU'VE BEEN IN DENMARK TOO LONG, WHEN:

You think there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.

You think its normal to pick up a girl in a pub, walk her to her bike and ride with her back home.

You understand why not every type of meat can be put together on top of bread.

You think its impolite to sit next to someone in a bus if there is a bench where you can sit on your own.

You go to the supermarket and buy three good beers and 10 not too good ones.

You can open a beer bottle with almost anything.

You honestly believe that the distance between Copenhagen and Aalborg is long.

You can tell the difference between a Grøn Tuborg and a Carlsberg beer

The first thing you do on entering a bank/post office/pharmacy etc. is to look for the queue number machine.

You accept that you will have to queue to take a queue number.

When a stranger on the street smiles at you, you assume that:
a. he is drunk;
b. he is insane;
c. he is American;
d. he is all of the above.

Silence is fun.

It no longer seems excessive to spend 150$ on alcohol in a single night.

You know that "religious holiday" means "let's get pissed".

You use "Mmmm" as conversation filler.

The word "yes" is an intake of breath.

You have only two facial expressions, smiling or blank

Traditional dinners may not necessarily mean a cooked meal.

You forget how to open canned beer.

Can't remember when to say "please" and "excuse me".

You will leave a pub if you can't find a seat.

Your wardrobe no longer has suits but blue shirts and mustard colored sports jackets and lots of denim.

You don't mind paying the same for a 200-metre bus ride as you do for going 10 kms.

You don't look twice at businessmen in dark suits wearing white sport socks.

You start to believe that if it weren't for Denmark's efforts, the world would probably collapse pretty soon.

You find yourself more interested in the alcohol content than the name of the wine.

It feels natural to wear sport clothes and a backpack everywhere.

You know the meaning of life has something to do with the word "hyggelig".

You are very surprised when you receive compliments about ANYTHING - including your appearance/clothing! In fact when you do, you find it suspicious and start thinking they might have ulterior motives.

You've completely forgotten what a "date" is - no one ever comes to pick you up and unexpected gifts are VERY unexpected.

You don't think it strange that no one ever comes by to visit without being invited and you never show up at any one's place unannounced either.

You wouldn't dream of coming even 10 minutes early to a party. (Once around the block is always an alternative)

You find yourself lighting candles when you have guests - even if it is brightly sunny outside and 20 degrees.

You offer people strange-tasting brown alcoholic liquids with their coffee in the MORNING!

Don't we love Denmark??!!

Heymudboy, I feel your pain. Apparently, Brazil and Denmark have a lot in common:

See? All this is VERY similar here in Brazil. The weather, not so much...

LOL! My favorite?

HA! I would stick like a roach on a chicken pen in 30 seconds flat! We puertorricans are like a poisonous virus! I would go to stranger's houses and talk to them about the 'good old times!' Just Kidding Invite me to Denmark, and I GUARANTEE that I if I arrive by 10am, I will be featured on the 6pm afternoon news AND will make the front page of next day's newspaper!

Ahh, our Scandinavian neighbours. The list you made is quite similar to the Netherlands. But then again, the Dutch and the Danish have always gotten along (well, except for that period at the end of the first millennium, when you guys raided our coasts and stuff). We're very similar!

I was waiting for that shark to come up, haha. Icelanders are freaks!

And to think I barely saw a sheep when I drove around NZ... I did see expensive merino-whool coats everywhere. Wink

slightly offended about the welsh thing with the sheep i am 25% welsh and my grandmother is welsh and the thing about the welsh is horrible and i really take offense to it sorry to spoil your fun but i dont mind you saying things like english and chips or booze or tea and scones and being posh but the welsh joke about the sheep is to far im normaly one who is up for a laugh but when such jokes like that are made they might be funny to you but to welsh people and part welsh they arent so funny

... and this concludes the Country bashing and name calling.

Fun is great until someone calls it. Please refrain from further comments. Nobody is mad or angry... and I want to keep it that way. Smile

By the power invested in me by the Anti-Flaming Brigade and the Troll-Bashing Department... thread closed! Very Happy
