Re: Norwegian exceptionalism

OL-leiren bestilte 1500 egg gjennom å oversette via Google Translate. Men det slo feil. 15.000 ble levert på døra.

Re: New AD Logo for 2018

I think the ideal logo would incorporate a mangled airplane, a squid, and a llama. It would appear that our current logo features an octopus rather than a squid. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=mega+shark+versus+giant+octopus&tbm=isch&tbs=simg:CAQSlQEJ73tiwYQjmTcaiQELEKjU2AQaAggVDAsQsIynCBpiCmAIA...

Well, the three wise men are yet to come, but Santa Per brought me a single present: A somewhat luxurious looking bottle of liquid soap from a female oriented brand. Close enough?
You're welcome. Use it wisely. The soap, not the bottle.
