What is a “Slow Cheese,” an “Environmental Pig,” or a “Cardboard Skull,” you might ask?

Well, if you read on, I will tell you!

A little while back, I posted some illustrations of bad, but funny, translations of Norwegian words here on Bored Panda.

You people seemed to like it, so I decided to make yet another post with weird Norwegian idioms as well.

For more content, you can also follow my Instagram and let me know what you would like to see next!

Hope you like it!
