Tak for kaffe!

via The 10 funniest Danish expressions and how to use them – Telegraph 

….and a ‘clarification’ on some of the idioms discussed in the article from the comment section by Lars Rønnow Larsen (http://disq.us/p/vsw840)  and Nick Brockdorff (http://disq.us/p/vsgee8).

“Tak for kaffe (thanks for the coffee), is the danish version of “this is too much, I am out of here” – and since danes ALWAYS drink coffee when they socialise, the exclamation is derived from a popular way of saying goodbye” (Brockdorff, 2015).
