Today is Syttende Mai, Norway’s Constitution Day (not, as I’m sure you remember from previous years, its Independence Day).
As happened last year (I’m pretty sure) it rained today, so I couldn’t display my Norwegian flag once again. I did wear my Norwegian flag tie, plus a Norwegian flag button, to work, however.
In celebration, I’ll post this video, the most memorable Norwegian thing I’ve seen recently.
It’s not memorable, I think you’ll agree, for its beauty or its music. It’s memorable for featuring an idiot in a man-bun who does things on mountains that no sane person should even think about.
I suppose it’s meant as a reminder of one thing Norwegians all have in common — a death wish.
After all, we’re the country that gave the world the lemming.
