Swedish word/phrase of the week


Actual translation: pillowcase
Literal translation : eagle good/tasty/yummy

I have no idea why Swedes equate pillows and pillowcases with eagles or the state of being tasty, but it would appear they do. This was one I hadn't thought of before overhearing a conversation in my favourite cafe. There were some fabulously hipster Swedes sitting with some equally hipster Americans sitting behind me while I drank my coffee. The Swedes were explaining it and I quickly jotted it down for the blog. Hilarious.
