    Funny headlines....

    - Ladies in particular seem offended by it...
    Sports pub in Trondheim changes name after costumer complaints



    And the article leads as follows:
    "After six months in business the owners of "The Cock and Balls Sports Pub" have found that the pub name may seem offensive to some of their costumers."

    I should point out that Norwegians are a somewhat fragile folk, at least when we're sober, and we do not have the kind of pub culture that you have in other countries. Also, we think the appropriate english word for the grownup male chicken - is "rooster". I would, on a personal note, suggest that six months is a rather long time to research this particular aspect of a business.

    Here's a nice one. You won't understand a word of the article, but here's an attempt at a translation:

    Newspaper: Adresseavisen, Norway
    Playstation enthusiast told to calm down

    Neighbours reported screaming and yelling on Saupstad Wednesday night

    Police responded to reports of a disturbance in an apartment building in the Saupstadringen area, around 2 am Wednesday night.
    - Neighbours heard screaming and yelling, says officer Håvard Høyem at Trøndelag police precinct. - They couldn't sleep. The patrol we sent, found the source of the commotion to be a resident playing video games.

    Police instructed the man to turn the volume down when playing games in the middle of the night.
    - He probably spent a little too much time in his own company, forgetting the rest of the world. He was quick to accept our request to be more quiet. We consider this matter resolved, says officer Høyem.

    You know, GRRowl, I read around a bit in the headlines of Adresseavisen and there was this series about the recent storms around Trøndelag. There was this disturbing headline that went like Den motoriserte sauen kan ta skade.

    If it wasn't for the thumbnail, I'd have had no idea what a motorized sheep ("en sau" is a sheep, right?) is supposed to be. Do you crazy Nordmenn really call a lawn mower robot a motorized sheep?!!!

    LOL! That is indeed a disturbing headline. I can assure you that is not the case, btw. Boring old "lawn mower robot" is what we call them too. Well, all but this intoxicated journalist, I assume.

    Right. So, you all know summer time can be quite slow on the news front. Not so much in Norway this year, where the headlines have been an interesting read as news of the stone formation known simply as "the Troll Dick" quickly became the stand out story of the summer.

    The protruding boulder had been quite the potent tourist attraction, until someone - probably with some kind of penis envy condition or erectile dysfunction as backdrop for their actions - went ahead and cut the Troll pecker clean off.

    The story since has been of the ongoing endeavour of repairing the damn thing, giving rise to epic headlines such as: The Troll Penis will rise again, Re-erecting the Troll Dick, and so on.

    I'll leave you with the time lapse video of the re-erection process, a costly project which was livestreamed in it's entirety.

    If you are in need of a soundtrack for this experience, the ever so famous song, immortalised by the talented singer Josh Groban, entitled "You Raise Me Up" should be an excellent choice.

    For reference: The Troll Dick in it's original state.
