What a piece of (Danish) junk! May the force be with you!

My DD11 (dear daughter, aged 11) was at a classmate’s birthday party at the ice rink yesterday afternoon. Now, the rink is right next to our local recycling centre so, when the time came to pick her up, I decided to load up the car with junk and kill two birds with one stone. Or should I say,”kill two flies with one swat”? Slå to fluer med et smæk? ;)


Our genbrugsstation (recycling centre) reopened a few weeks ago after an extensive makeover. It’s scarily efficient in its layout. There are even ‘pit stop’ areas where you can clean your hands and vacuum your car! I was ooooohing and aaaaahing over the streamlined, high-tech look of the place when one of the recycling crew told me a funny story. The design contract was apparently won by a French architect. A Star Wars fan. Yep, if you take a closer look at the layout of the recycling plant, you’ll see that it’s shaped like…the Millennium Falcon! The only thing missing, said my new-best-friend-the-recycling-worker, was Chewbacca… ;)



What a piece of junk!” Said Luke, the first time he set eyes on the Millennium Falcon. Hmm, you can just hear the French architect: “She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid. I’ve made a lot of special modifications myself!” :P

“Now let’s blow this thing and go home!” Have a (junk free) wookieweekend!
