Question:

What's the Danish for 'dangle'?

Forfeit:

DONGLE
DUNGLE
DENGLE
DOONGLE

Answer:

Dingle.

What about that famous picture of a gurner - you know the one I mean, an old man, with his teeth out, who appears to be swallowing his own face. Because if he isn't swallowing his own face, then he might very well be trying to teach himself a Scandinavian language.
