Haha... You ahve got to ask yourself, why would people call their town something like that? :D

Oh, don't mind the danish writing. Danish and Norwegian are pretty much the same language in writing. Minor differences. I'm not so good at understanding a conversation, but the writing is almost like writing with a fellow countryman. :D I just asked if they had some funny names up there too. ;)
Whatever happens...

Sissel Kyrkjebø, er ikke hun dansk nå?  :p

Kyrkje = kirke
Bø =  vet ikke hva det betyr, er bare et stedsnavn tror jeg.

I could translate this to English, but I doubt it would be very interesting. :cool:

Nordisk kærlighed! :D

We have some really, REALLY good ones here in Denmark.

 - Sæd = Semen/sperm
 - Lem = dick
 - Tarm = intestine
 - Bræk = puke
 - Bøssemark = gayfield
 - Fodby = foottown
 - København (you could make this 'køb en havn'), Copenhagen = Buy a habour (it probably really meant something about trade by the habour)

 Denmark is crazy. Don't go there. :D

I've never heard of Bræk...where is that?
Anyways, I was born just near the town "Høm", which can be translated at poop... yup, we danes are weird
