I Illustrate Norwegian-To-English Idiom Translations To Show How Weird They Can Be To Non-Native Speakers (16 Pics)

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.
