Let us present, 5 very random Norwegian expressions:

 

Som hakka møkk – As chopped shit (pardon us) – Selling like chopped shit!
Hakka mokk - spraying manure

 

Klar som et egg – Ready as an egg – Ready to go, get started
klar-som-et-egg-norwegian-ready-as-an-egg

 

Ha det som plommen i egget – Feel like an egg yolk – Being very comfortable

Silkeføre – silky conditions – relating to snow conditions when cross country skiing – it means things are going really well/easy.
