I have written a lot about funny Swedish words, such as prick, fart and slut.
I was wondering the other day about how many funny English words there are….words that Swedes find funny? To be honest, I could only actually think of a few.
Please help me to add to this list!
English words that Swedes find funny
- Pink – a delightful color in English – means pee in Swedish
- Kiss – a gesture of love in English – means pee in Swedish
- Goodbyes – as in ‘saying your goodbyes’ – means good poo in Swedish
- Pippa – the posh girl’s name as in Pippa Middleton – means to shag in Swedish
- Bra – as in supportive underwear – means good in Swedish
- Fan – a tool for cooling us down – means fuck (as in damn) in Swedish
- Rap – the music form – ironically means burp in Swedish
- Skit – as in a satirical sketch – means shit in Swedish
