Only on Reddit

Only on Reddit do I discover things like this:

TIL that a popular slang in Danish for having your period is “Der er kommunister i lysthuset”, or, “There are communists in the funhouse”

When I called shenanigans – believing this to be a puerile internet prank, and maybe a little upset at the implication that communists or menstruation spoil fun times – I got confirmation from others, including more euphemisms:

I’m danish and I’ve heard it before 🙂

We also have “The red painter is visiting” and a bunch of others… The worst term for it is probably “period-sauce”…
