A 'håndmad' is a term used to describe being hit by a flat hand in the face. Håndmad literally means an open sandwich. Also known as 'smørrebrød', but the latter is 'højt belagt' high layered, making smørrebrød more of a mouth full but actually less nutritious. A håndmad is flat in comparison to smørrebrød and makes a more snappy sound on delivery than it's relative. Danish girls often give out håndmadder if you express your intentions to directly. But on the other hand if you don't you'll risk ending up being only good friends. It's a balance really despite Danish girls reputation. We do export the real frivolous ones to avoid to many fist fights in the bars. But here I go babelling away again...
This is a Danish term invented to describe the Carlsberg you'll often find in the groin area of seated Danish truck drivers. It literally translates in to — testis biber — in latin. Interesting enough 'testis' means 'a witness', which translates the term into the beautiful phrase 'A witness beer'.
I thought I was seeing things yesterday when there were 3 new michaelchang entries on the Public Haiku list. (Now, when an open list is actively being added to, it shows up on the front page - lower right). Good to have you back!
Oh wow, you are cracking me up! (Didn't have time to scan my brain for Wordie-er words just then). I am getting such delight from your suggestions to my list. Don't be offended if some don't make the cut; they are all pretty creative. THANKS!!!
