Norwegian village has a "Monty Python" moment

Just thought this was funny:

The Norwegian village of Ørje replaces the crossing signs at one of their street crossings with a “Silly Walk” variety.

The national road authorities are apparently about to spoil the fun, though:

A larger picture of one the controversial signs.

I kept waiting for Lil’ Steven to saunter across.

Unfortunately the sign has just the faintest flavor of goose-stepping about it. However, the briefcase saves it.

As for those road authorities, just a bunch of dour Lutherans, I’ll be bound.

Ørje sounds like a good place to live.

Until you get bitten by a møøse.

I was once bitten by a møøse. No, realli!

I bet you can get a nice parrot there.


Norwegian Blue, lovely plumage.

What? The møøse?

The majestik møøse is not blue. This I know.

A Møøse once bit Mr Me und my sister… No realli! He was Karving her initials on the møøse with the sharpened end of an interspace tøøthbrush given by Svenge - her brother-in-law - an Oslo dentist and star of many Norwegian møvies: “The Høt Hands of an Oslo Dentist”, “Fillings of Passion”, “The Huge Mølars of Horst Nordfink”…
