Gainomax – Gulebøjer

Swedes in general like to make fun of the norwegian language, since it has a lots of funny words. We even make parodies like “gulebøj”(=yellow bend) to describe a banana. In the first 2017 issue of monthly magazine Nöjesguiden, there is an interview with norwegian artist Gabrielle. She rose to fame by having one of her songs featured in the extremely popular norwegian tv-show “Skam”. We therefore thought it’d be a great place to translate Gainomax’s classic slogan “Bananas are for monkeys” into “pretend norwegian”: “Gulebøjer er for apekatter.”
