I used to date a Swedish chick. Yes, she was blond and buxom. But anyway, we once had a little chat about the Swedish Chef. I asked her what she thought about him. She remembered him from watching TV as a kid and she and her family thought he was hilarious because he would talk silly and fling things around the room. I asked her if she or her family felt insulted that he was supposed to be talking Swedish. This hit her from left field.

"Swedish? Talking Swedish? I don't understand."

"To us, the Swedish Chef was talking like a Swedish person. It's how we perceive the Swedish language."

"Hmm? We always thought he was the Swedish Chef because he was supposed to making very bad Swedish food."

"What language did you think he was talking?"

"No idea. We all thought it was just silly talk. Do we talk like that? Bork bork?"

"No. You talk like this: 'a-sveer ko-loam a-scheer na-loan -a-keer'."

"Oh, I see. You Americans all talk like this: 'A-rar na-rar bar-a-rear-a-rar snack a-rar-rar'."

"OK, you got me there. But the Swedish Chef?"

"No one in my family thought he was supposed to talking Swedish."

So there you have it. Anecdotal evidence that the Swedes were not insulted by the Swedish Chef but may have been insulted if they knew the creator's intent.

They must have been very blond, I think most of us get it. There is even a Swede who claims he is the inspiration Link
The fun part is that all Swedes feel that Americans know very little about the world. So its: Haha Americans think we sound like THAT.

CitizenTed: "Oh, I see. You Americans all talk like this: 'A-rar na-rar bar-a-rear-a-rar snack a-rar-rar'."


I've often wondered what Americans sound like to other people. It seems to me that English has a lot of words that end in -ing, so I've generally assumed someone mimicking the sounds of American English would include something like "singing bringing." But maybe not.

I've heard that to non-native speakers, English sounds "ugly" or "like dogs barking," but then, I've heard a lot of people claim that French sounds beautiful to a non-native speaker and German sounds harsh and ugly, and I completely disagree with those perceptions, so I guess it's more personal taste than anything universal.

CSB and IIRC:

About 10 years ago, Cartoon Network decided to no longer show Speedy Gonzales cartoons because they might be offensive to latinos.

However.....

Speedy is very popular in Mexico, and Cartoon Network in Mexico continued to show his cartoons.

/And that's what really grinds my gears.
