The Danish word 'sort' means 'black'.

THIS BRINGS A WHOLE NEW MEANING TO THE WORD 'POLYTHEISM'

I found this the other day

The road name sign translates to "Grimway"
The four signs translate to "The Bailiff Court", "Tax", "The State Prison" and "Crematory"

"Gammel dansk" literally means "Old Danish" and is some alcohol thing

I didn't know there was a territory with that name but then I got a casus belli to take Gammeldansk

I don't know. I've heard there's a secret, hidden room at university which has a notebook and a bottle of gammel dansk, and if people find it, they're supposed to write their name in the book and drink from the bottle. Maybe there's another secret room where they ferment people to replace the bottles. Lots of interesting stuff to search for.

The Danish word "gangart" means "gait"

Ministeriet for Gakkede Gangarter means the Ministry of Silly Walks.

In Danish, the common traffic warning text "pas på blinde vinkler" means "beware of blind spots", however since "pas" looks so similar to "pass", and "på" literally means "on", and "blinde" is literally just "blind", and "vinkler" really means "angles" which is just a realistic spelling of "angels", a true speaker of Danglish would translate it to "pass on blind angels".

The Danish word "slam" means "sludge"

Slamsuger (sludge sucker) means sludge truck

The Danish word "svin" means swine, but "svine" is a verb and means to make something dirty.

If some place is really dirty you may call it a "svinesti", a swine path.

Many words related to obsession with something end in -man

For example

narkoman - drug addict
ludoman - gambling addict
pyroman - pyromaniac
kleptoman - kleptomaniac
