During times of pandemic, the common flu is known as Piglet Flu. While less deadly than Swine Flu it still makes you feel like shit. However, because it is not infamous like swine flu you get no respect from having it. So you feel like crap and no one gives a damn because you don't have h1n1.
Doctor: How do you feel.
Patient: Like shit.
Doctor: Well the tests came back, you don't have swine flu. So get the hell out you lazy good for nothing bastard. Come back with a real illness.
Patient (as he is thrown out) But i really do have the flu. Even if it is only piglet flu.
The Norwegian Prom, except instead of one night it goes on for 3 weeks. Many students are drunk every night and ride around in busses or vans some of which cost over $200000 and have sound systems that could be used at most concerts. Most week nights these busses drive around playing norwegian cities filled to the brim with drunken happy people. However on several weekends during the "Russ holiday" they all gather in huge parties with 11000 people. It is truly the most epic graduation ever. Nothing even comes close to the pure awesomeness that is russefeiring.
I was was drunk every day for 3 weeks during russefeiring. It was the best party of my life.
