I don't normally just repost stuff, but I loved this post from metaquotes sooo much I just had to paste it here.

Found on </a></b></a>littledevi's lj. In response to her post on the Swedish Hip-Hop Awards
(entitled You're goddamn right that it's better than bork)

</a></b></a>tfofurn responds with

"Your hip-hop brings all the Swedes to the yard,
and they're like "It's better than Björk"
Damn right, it's better than Björk!
I could teach you, but you're such a dörk."

Oh, man. Did you check the names of the bands?

Mobbade Barn med Automatvapen (translates to "Bully Kids with Automatic Weapons")

Streetdance-framträdande av Beef Noodles (I'm not sure you even need a translation of this one, and I'm not sure I can give you a good one. Swedish prepositions are tricky. I'm pretty certain it's something like "Prominent Street Dance of Beef Noodles.")

Those whacky Swedes.

Huh. Can't get to that entry. It's protected.

"Pippi Långstrump" is simply the name of Pippi Longstocking in Sweden, though. ("Lång", pronounced just like "long", but with a Minnesota accent, means "long." "Strump", pronounced like "stroomp", means stocking. It's a very literal translation.)
