    But yeah, I would have much rather seen him in EPL. But I dont think he likes England (and its not like they are his biggest fans, either).
    These are all facts IMO.

    The best part was when he called "doll" a mannequin, hahaha... I know for non english speakers that word may be unknown (I don't even know if I spelt it right) but I don't know, I just find it funny how he said: "the clothes on the... doll", hahaha!

    The chicken part is weird in Swedish as well, and in the translation between Swedish and English, and pretty much all over.
    The actual translation for goose bumps is "gåshud" (goose skin), but some people insist on calling it "tuppskin" (cock skin ). Now if you dont really care about the distinction between a cock and a chicken, you end up with "chicken skin".

    There is a lot of this stuff going on in Swedish. The most notable error is probably when people want to comment on generalisation. The notion that you are not allways supposed to draw everyone with one comb makes somewhat sense because it does ilustrate the point, and the act of combing isnt lethal. However, the word "comb" and the word "boarder" are very similar in Swedish ('kam' and 'kant' respectively), so a lot of people got it wrong and like to proclaim that you shoudnt draw everyone over the same boarder. To make this worse, a general interpretation of this is that boarder implies the edge of a cliff. So what they are really saying is that you shoudnt throw everyone over the same edge of the cliff.

    Its perfectly fine to throw people over the edge of a cliff, as long as its not the same edge; that whould just be rude.

    Am I missing something? Chicken skin does mean goose bumps in English. See here.

    I think swedish people have the best english skills in europe, followed by the dutch. (excluding native speakers obviously) I was told it has to do with movies, because they dont get dubbed in some countries, so you have to learn english if you want to understand them. Is that true?

    And its "goose skin" (gänsehaut) in german too.

    It's true. Movies never get dubbed in The Netherlands & Flanders. Even German movies, just to give an example, are showed in German with Dutch subtitles. There's always subtitles though.
