(I tried to use as many of timsterner's Swedish idioms as I could!)

'Oh, go to where the pepper grows'

Said the man to his long-suffering wife

'Even in hell, you'll make fire for the crows

Wasting warmth as I've wasted my life'

Was the day you slid on a shrimp sandwich'

 

So I found myself thinking about some ways we could go about making a feature film and here I present to you a jumble of ideas all pertaining to one main idea!

He's a piteous beast, a most ill-favoured wonk

And grievously misunderstood

 

His saggy Squonk skin hangs off...
