Drive time word mavenry

I was listening to the morning program on Swedish State Radio channel 2 this morning where they were playing 'Danish word of the day.' The idea is that they read some Danish word and then people (Swedes!) call in and try to guess what it means. Today's word was 'stikkelsbaerben' and people were guessing everything possible, from a Daddy long legs spider to razor stubble. The correct meaning is 'hairy legs' and the Danes at work told me that the literal translation is 'gooseberry legs'. You wouldn't want to be caught at the beach with those now would you?
