Up Side Down by derkert Up Side Down by derkert
Four legs are better than two, sometimes they can come in very handy, right?! Se also Twisted sister [link] for a similar approach to legs.

In English one says up side down.

In swedish speaking Finland they say: Upp som ner. Which means up as down.

In Sweden we say: Upp och ner, that is: up and down. Which is usually a very strange thing to say when something is up side down. But here it fits the picture perfectly!

In Norwegian, Kristine [link] reports they say it with just two syllables: upp ned. Short and sweet! How do one say it in other languages?

Thanks all the same Richard!

Under over sideways down! Song by Yardbirds?

When you are drunk in Sweden you might say one a bit slanted. Lite på sniskan.

Just for your information!

I remember that song - a good song!

We don't say that here but it sounds right just the same - if I had too much to drink and told someone I was a bit slanted I think they'd get it!

Let's see... one word we use for it here is "looped." That fits this up-down theme.

Huvudlöst! Means the head is lose! And therefore crazy!

Its funny how these kind of terms sometimes imply a lack of sense and sometimes craziness.

I'm very sorry! This was in page after page of comments. I'll do better next time! :D

To answer your question, this one: In swedish speaking Finland they say: Upp som ner. Which means up as down.

I like that one because it is close to saying Up IS Down...which fits this perfectly. :)
