I am using Duolingo to try and improve on the schoolboy french I learned over 40 years ago, and while its a very useful app, I swear it is hard of hearing sometimes, when I am talking to it in french, it always sees to struggle with me :(

My wife is half Danish, her father was a Dane. If you visit the WWII museum in Copenhagen there is a bible on display. In the flyleaf the 12 founder members of the Danish resistance signed the bible swearing allegiance to King Christian 10th. Not only is her father one of the signatories, but it was his bible. We didn't find that out until after his death.

Also in there is the VC won by Anders Lassen, the only non-British winner of the Victoria Cross (he was commanding a British company at the time which is why he qualified). My wife's father and Anders Lassen knew each other well.

When Denmark was bypassed near the end of the war in order to concentrate on Germany, General Eisenhower sent a representative to meet King Christian to explain the Allied plans and explain why Denmark was being bypassed. That representative was my wife's father.

My wife's mother was part of the small team who made the 3D models of the Ruhr dams that were instrumental in the success of the Dambuster Raid. Guy Gibson came to see her team after the raid to say a personal thank you. In the film 'The Dambusters' the models you see are the real ones. They are now in the Imperial War Museum.

No such heroics in my family I'm afraid.....

Sorry to muddy the waters by getting the Swedes involved but this thread reminded me of a classic Two Ronnies sketch…

Loved the sketch in the chemist where one is asking for deodorant, the other says in a heavy accent "ball type or aerosol," and the response was "No, I want it for my armpits"

Also reminded of another surreal question from bonkers TV quiz show Shooting Stars:

True or false - the Dutch language started out as a joke but it just got out of hand.
