I love languages and I really love funny words and phrases.
But as a Norwegian, I sometimes catch myself saying these weird things when I speak English because my brain directly translates the words. This causes some English-speaking people to scratch their heads—“What on earth is an Ice Bear? Or an Ink Squirt? And why would I eat a Lard Ring?”
So I made this Instagram account where I translate words from Norwegian to English in a bad way. I also add a drawing so people can understand what it is.
I hope people will like it, and maybe have a little laugh, also I hope that you guys can come up with words from your own language that would seem weird to non-speakers.
Hope you will enjoy these silly word translations!
