Would not recognize you, Lars, without the rose-colored lenses. 😉
Whoa, imagine the cost of those beers in Norway!
Lars, did you join in late or is that already your second one?
Uwe Raabe To be honest, I was at least two and half glass ahead of Cristoph at that moment. He arrived late 🙂 Prost! Or as we sometimes say in Norway (directly translated): “Schau an die Decke!” or “Kopp in Nacken”!
“Nicht lang schnacken, Kopp in Nacken!” is orignial Plattdeutsch. Are they really the same words in Norwegian or was this your translation from Norwegian?
Lars Fosdal Interesting. The phrase “Kopp in Nacken” is used in exactly the same way here in our local dialect “Plattdeutsch” (literally “Flat German”), which is spoken all over Northern Germany mostly in rural areas and in a multitude of flavors. In “High German” one would say “Kopf in den Nacken”. The whole sentence goes: “Nich lang schnacken – Kopp in Nacken.” and has the meaning of “Don’t talk – drink!”
Lübbe Onken Sorry, didn’t see your comment before.
“Kopp in Nacken” was Christoph’s suggestion for a German analog to the “Look to the Ceiling”, (in Norwegian: “Sjau i takjet” in a dialect from Sogn & Nordfjord/Voss).
That explains it. 🙂
Bill Meyer I’m a realist these days 😉
Lars Fosdal I guess that’s why you need the big mug!
Wish I had such a mug right now. Started traveling at 1230, and won’t be home until past midnight. Currently on a train from Oslo Gardermoen Airport to Porsgrunn, after a couple of hours in a car to Zürich, and a flight we nearly missed due to incompetent airport people. Travel is so relaxing…
