What’s the Swedish Chef saying?

The Muppets have enduring popularity, both in America and around the world.

But there’s one question it seems everyone asks – what exactly is the Swedish Chef saying??

Well, apparently Swedish people get asked that question a lot, and their answer is nothing Swedish. To Swedish people he sounds Norwegian. Actually he’s speaking gibberish!

Slate did find a ‘translation’ of the gibberish though – it’s based on the context and which words sounds similar to Swedish words. There are videos of the Swedish translation and the English version here.
