Is this true?

Norwegians use the word "texas" as slang to mean crazy, it has emerged. But when did this start happening, and how unusual is it?

 

To most of the world, Texas is known as a big state in southern America.

 

But to Norwegians, it is also a word that frequently crops up in everyday conversation - often in the phrase "Der var helt texas!" [That was very completely/totally texas!].

 

The word is slang for "crazy" or "wild" and is used to refer to a chaotic atmosphere

I´ve never heard of those expressions before. There is nothing like it here in Sweden. 

 

I'd say that was insulting but then I recalled that I think of most Scandinavians as variations on the Swedish chef, so...

 

Ha, ha.

It´s obviously Danish. *nods*
