How to smuggle 20 kg of excellent flour from a Cornish family mill to Norway? Public transport.

I’d wrap it up into small plastic bags labeled 100% Pure Colombian Cocaine and put it in your suitcase. In the unlikely event that you are stopped by customs officials, you tell them that it’s really just flour and you have good laugh together. In that case they won’t bother to complain about the flour.

Of course, there may be a brief interlude, possibly including a body cavity search, but undoubtedly all in good humor. And you may be asked ‘Har du rent mel i posen?’

I threw out most of my stuff and it's still estimated at about one tone! That's less than Keira Nightley's, according to the people who moved us both. Actors...
They also advised me to put flour in the checked in luggage and write "flour on it" (-:

I watched Trolljegeren some time ago to test my (very basic level of) Norwegian. I understood two sentences maybe and some random words. Some of them didn't sound Bokmal at all.

The artist is Christopher Nielsen, evidently a pretty well known Norwegian comic artist. The characters depicted are Odd and Geir, ‘To trøtte typer’, or as they are known in (a terrible) translation, ‘Two wasted wankers’. The image appears to predate the arrival of Covid to Norway, so is probably just a paean to pizza.

Thanks. I was confused by "odd" - didn't know it was a name of one of the characters.

Nice poem. I have to wait with making friends until the end of my quarantine. Now I have to keep my 1m distance (which seems to be the only regulation here in Oslo - I've seen at most 3 people wearing a mask).
