A fun song in Danish

Oh boy, a video about a grandmother drinking beer šŸ˜€ And in Danish too, the language of the Vikings! What’s not to like! šŸ˜€Ā I have always liked Danish. It has such an interesting sound to it. I know some people make fun of it though. Some have called it “Norwegian spoken with a potato in your mouth”.

I don’t think that is fair. It is obviously “Swedish spoken with a potato in your mouth” šŸ˜€ I kid! It is a very cool language. It is descended from Old Norse as are all the modern North Germanic languages. It is closely related to Swedish, which are both descended from an eastern dialect of Old Norse, whereas Norwegian and Icelandic are descended from a western dialect of Old Norse.
