Fun with FARTs

Playing with the Danish word "FART" never does seem to get old......
I wrote about it twice in 2009 (BADFARTEN and TURISTFART)
and again in 2010... (KRISTI HIMMELFART)

and even though I am a woman of a MATURE age, I still giggle when I see it in print! I just cannot help myself.  Yes, I know the word "fart" in Danish is usually talking about speed, like when the authorities post signs for FART KONTROL (still a favorite), but this headline in last week's Herning Folkeblad sent me over the edge as I thought about my own family....

Would you say that your family could be described using today's adjective?? 


Yeah, yeah, I know this merely means that the family likes hanging out at the go-cart track and racing things.... but oh the directions your mind can go when you read headlines like this one!

Happy Monday!

LOL! :) German has that, too. Imagine singing "Schlittenfahrt" to the tune of Jingle Bells!

It is funny how(we)more mature people can resort to childhood humor, even when sober!

Hi Kelli,
I have been reading your blog a bit from time to time. I am a friend of Nichole and Michael whom I know you have visited in Lyngby.

I just want to ask if you have been in a lift that says "i fart" when running? It makes me smile even if I am a Dane :-)

Personally, I like the 'farts demper' singns before speed tables/bumps.
