It looks like the person in the picture is much farther away than the toy, which is probably just a regular-sized toy, photographed to create a false perspective.

“It looks like the person in the picture is much farther away than the toy, which is probably just a regular-sized toy, photographed to create a false perspective.”

- Even though you’re right, I’d like you to tone down your critic attitude towards Danish Capitalism.

Didn’t you know Europe is morally superior to your part of da world?

“It my be a faked photo”

- Perhaps, but most Danes actually look like that.

““NO REAL THAN YOU ARE” should enter the lexicon of bad translations.”

- Why?

Look at the picture on this Norwegian page: http://www.aftenposten.no/nyheter/uriks/article1925563.ece

Do you think this is also a photography of a regular size Lego man?

““NO REAL THAN YOU ARE” should enter the lexicon of bad translations.”

- Why?


That phrase really makes no sense to a native English speaker. Is the artist trying to say "no more real than you"? It's only one word, but it makes a huge difference.
