    No there goes my joke: google translate says that Danish for 'nice' is 'nice ... and Danish for 'hot' is 'hot'?! Is that right?!
    Only 'expensive' changes, i.e. to 'giga-dyrt'. That sounds good! In Denmark they refer to a lot of money as 'dirt'?! And a 'Dirty Mind' is just an expensive one? tongue

    Ha ha, I understand your confusion. The youth in Denmark uses a lot of english these days, so the first two needs no translation! You are right, "dyrt" is expensive. But it doesn't pronounce like dirt, so no connection there ;D
    Stille it can be expensive to have a dirty mind! ... tongue

    You took the day off to get the remote under your own control and let no oldies into the living room.

    This sort of summed up 80's music in a day. Truly the first global event.

    When I hear Madonna's "Like a Wirgin" I imagine ex-girlfriends running around in frills wearing hideous lipstick and chewing gum. popcorn
