Quote of the day: DANISH

January 6, 2013


When asked by the Guardian to account for the popularity of Danish television overseas, the actress Sidse Babett Knudsen – who plays Birgitte Nyborg, Denmark’s first female statsminister, on “Borgen” – replied, “I’ve no idea, because our language is one of the most ugly and limited around. You can’t seduce anyone in Danish; it sounds like you are throwing up.”

— Lauren Collins in the New Yorker
