Well...I once said that the sun was blowing...and then said that i had burned a church over the weekend. I laughed about it...but I still try and speak Swedish.

The FART HINDER signs are funniest when they have the pictures of the speed bumps...

In Denmark, I liked the sign that said SLUTSPURT - that was funneh to me...

A quick look at websites gave me this : As far back as the fourteenth century we can read such warnings as "Beware of thy hinder parts from gunblasting,"

Part 1 : A Metaphysical and Anecdotal Consideration of the Fart

It's a funny read.

Some say koort and some say kårt, but it's written kort.
I say kårt for short and kårt for card. But if you take a "kort" in Norway... you steal a postcard or something..
Kort (picture of a person or thing) is called "bilde"...

a-ha is yes in norway.

So you said the word "KÅT" instead of "KORT {KÅRT}"... I think they were very rude to you. Many people in sweden are "Kåt i baken"...

Estrella, I'm more confused.What Espen first said was I THINK correct; I said Horny (kåt) instead of short (kort). I am also afraid to say card (also WRITTEN as kort) just because of small accentuation in pronounciation.

You should train and train to say the 'long' Swedish O, 'wide' E and the 'high' A.
If you get that right no one will ever missunderstand you again.

kort [kårt] = short
kåt [kååt] = horny
kort [kOrt] = card/picture(photo)

Now, kort (card) can be pronounced in two ways, the daily speech fast verson above and [koort] with the very long O. This is 'pure' and very clear Swedish.

Also, these 'RT' is pronounced like the English T (far back).
While in kåt the T is pronounced at the back of the teeth like normal.
So [kårt] (short) should really be [kått] with English T's.
Thus [kOrt] = [kott]

Ever noticed when Swede's sing a song in English the word 'you' sounds like 'jew'?

It happens 9 times out of 10.

The R moves the T back and of the teeth.

My Rs are ON my teeth, not back from it. I think my Rs might be Swedish. :? Are you trying to tell me that they don't use the R at all in koRt?
