I will always remember the time my mother tried to tell our guests from the Netherlands that it was carrot cake she was offering them. (Very tasty carrot cake.) She thought long and hard and then declared it "parrot cake".
In that spirit, I found these other funny quotes from when swedes have found the wrong words.
And I remember I read recently somewhere; What do you think a swede means when he says; "There are a lot of easter-lilies in my rabbit"?
... and the cat just climbed my shoulder (like a parrot) and is licking my hair fevrently... -_-
