Cheese danish. Cheese Danish. CHEESE DANISH!

/if you went to college with me, this was incredibly funny.

I'm a Danish CEO so I'm getting a kick out of some of these replies.

Ooh, somebody don't like the po-leece!


/surprised there wasn't a Rodney King reference in there

You know, honestly, this whole thing is a little strange.

FTFA:

Police were initially skeptical of Bagger, who was recently named Danish Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young.

"We've had several people come in and tell us they were the king of Denmark," police Officer Jack Richter told the Los Angeles Times.

Really, tell me how many people in California, let alone a mentally unstable person walking into police stations to make a confession, would even know whether or not Denmark has a King or a Royal Family. Something is rotten in the state of Jack Richter's mind.


Personally, I'd go hog wild and would walk into a police station claiming to be Lord of the Universe.

Reminds me of one morning in high school when a bunch of us were gathered for a breakfast before embarking on some state-mandated testing. Our physics teacher came by, leaned over the table, and said, "I bit into my cheese danish, and I almost had an orgasm." Probably only funny if you went to my high school and know what teacher I mean, and/or you were at said table at that moment.

I do loves me some cheese danish.

There is no such thing as a cheese danish. That would be an abomination greater than an all cheese pizza

Come on, you answered your own question. If you're mentally unstable, are you going to CARE if Denmark has a King or Royal Family?? I doubt many crazy people are going to ponder, "I think I'll tell the cops I'm King of Denmark...hm, I don't know if Denmark has a king...better say I'm King of France instead!"

The more startling thing is if they even have heard of Denmark--probably some fugue left over from high school and Hamlet.

I just landed in the København airport and can tell you that the only cheese in the SAS first class lounge is Swiss Cheese.

T.M.S.: I just landed in the København airport and can tell you that the only cheese in the SAS first class lounge is Swiss Cheese.


Or as Danes like to call it, Danish cheese made in Denmark.

I wouldn't know how to even get Swiss cheese in Denmark or on anything related to Denmark.

. Yeah, it means a lot to us. I realise that it appears sad, but sorry, we care about cheese. It's important to us.

The British gave the world Imperialism... And stable Socialism... And made the world stupidly safe.
the French gave the world both the biggest joke, and the most fearless leaders in History.
The Germans gave the world beer you can float a damn WALNUT in.
The Norwegians gave the world modern military tactics.
The Swedish gave the world a centralized system of making sure if one country tanked the rest didn't follow (tested repeatedly in the past sixty years... Still works).
The Russians gave us nine-thousand ways it just didn't/doesn't work and STILL won't fall as a country (even through THREE changes of economy in less than 100 years).
The Portugese just won't die - ever.
The Spanish just won't die - ever.

But what did the Danish give you?

We gave you redheads - 90% of the world's redheads are Danish or have predominantly Danish ancestry - the rest are twice as rare as albinism.

You're welcome.

/Yes, both girl and picture - thank you GIS)

Thought I made a mistake typing... Yep - I did.

That should say "99%" not "90%".

Also worth noting: only 1 in 20-30 people in the world has red hair. Discounting Asians, Africans and Indians it climbs to 1 in 10. Counting those, you would get 10% "But how can 10% of Europe have red hair when Danes only account for 5% of total population?"

It took government money and over five generations to figure it out - The Viking raids. Much like Genghis Khan claiming 4% of the world's population has his genetics, Eric The Red also claims about... 4%. It's also believed he's the reason Hypertrophic Pituitary Syndrome (giantism) shows spurts of activity and inactivity in Europeans - recessive genes (blonde/red hair) are incredibly difficult to breed out of a gene pool, but might not show up for 2-3 generations in a family line - and follow the exact same mathematic scale. Mendel, you beautiful pea-growing bastard.
