Cian Cosgrave : Noel looks like Lord Farquad

SafeBox : his answer was the best haha

Erich L : Just when I thought Noel couldn't be any weirder he gets that haircut.

mikeykm1993 : Brilliant clip. Wasn't sure how the series would go without Stephen, but Sandi does a brilliant job.

An N : I hope this wasn't the random UK phone number I rejected a call from a few weeks ago

Douglas Sandberg : "Cause they're usually drunk" says the Dane. I mean Denmark is where we go when we want to get shit faced. It's cheap (at least cheaper), you only have to be 16, and no-one will judge you. It's an alcohol haven.

thedr00 : "you'll never meet an unfriendly Swede" Yay Sweden!

Nic Soderman : As a Finnish person living in Sweden, I am a little cross. "They're usually drunk", Sandi says. No. You are thinking of Finns. Finns are usually drunk. There, settled and corrected.

Yokky : What a lovely and friendly country.

orange circle : Robin, you must have looked for this video knowing what happened? Comment on this and we can all discuss :)

Thomas Lindholm : "No, because they're usually drunk" Good to see that Sandi still has here Danish perception of Swedes :)

Arvid Olson : Heja sveariket! Surströmming åt folket!

tobbe Larsson : lol usually drunk?😀 that's what we say about the Danes lol

Gert Ahnström : I come from the region of Sweden where the "Surströmming" or fermented herring has its origins. Basically there were some islands where poor fishermen lived and to store fish for winter, they salted them and put them to dry in barrels. However, not having enough salt caused the fish to ferment, but being poor they somehow had to eat the fish anyway. What to do? Make a party and eat it with fresh potatoes and quite a few shots of schnapps! Even though the need to eat it thankfully haven't been around for quite some time, the party became a tradition and the canned fish became a delicassy and the right recipe an art. Do Swedes eat it? Not really; not as regular food. But it's a nice party; and as Swedes, we like the exuse to gother up and sing around the tables along with some special food.^^

Rasmusb : "that's because they're usually drunk". I wish this was the case but alcohol is too expensive here

Springas : The fish we eat isn't rotten. It is fermented! There is a diffrence.

Daniel Sánchez : I'm pretty sure he didn't need subtitles.

SH4D0W0733 : Nice dodge of the question, can't let up state secrets now can we?

lanswipe : It would be amazing if he showed up in the comments

Tomb : "I have never met a unfriendly Swede" "It is because they are usually drunk." Well, she ain't wrong

BellaPJ : we are usually drunk...but that just makes us nicer ;)

Sepharess : Fun fact: Robin was actually Dutch.

Stephanie Forde : Sarah Millican looks amazing

Tony Music : "Okay, I'll call you later." Dad: "No, you can call me Dad."

Andrew Hazlewood : Not even random Swede knows why anyone eats lutefisk

Christian Oskarsson : Woop woop! Heja Sverige 👋🏼

MiotaLee : Damn! I wish I knew about this so I could have registered. I'd love to have my voice featured on QI ><

Toasty : Godammit it's not rotten, it's fermented

Tom bones Jones : Hey that's pretty good

13th Evergreen : This is a Kevin and Bean bit from KROQ in the 90's

WelshGrey : What a wonderful conversation

TheBlackDemon1996 : "This call may be recorded" ...Well I don't know why you'd think that.

Fredrik Löfstedt : Love it. XD

sb : noel lookin' straight up like lord farquad

Monaco Super : Brilliant!

Kanjoos Lahookvinhaakvinhookvin : I really hope this is a future QI question and the call Robin back

MidNightMoto : most of these stereotypes are Norwegian or Finnsih...I bet these people think Norway and Finland are towns in Sweden

Wowo Mah : Noel looks like he joined the Music Machine

surprisenaps : I have the same glasses as Sandi...I'm flattered :)

Elestro Air-soft : "They're usually drunk" - Erhm, excuse me? Did you, the UK, call us out on drinking? It's like being called a gun-nut by an American. :)

Samuel Robinson : I feckin love the Scandinavians, their effortless ability to converse in English, their healthy attitudes towards sex, their friendliness, their beauty and just their general Scandinavianess ....big shout out to my friend from Norway Hanne-Mette, she can speak 11 languages..

Widdekuu91 : Ahhww can we do this as well? Random Dutchie? I'd love that, as long as it isn't in the middle of the night.

Lauren : Noel.. that is a ROUGH haircut

Forsbocken : God i miss QI, no place to stream it in sweden from what i've found... Is there no streaming service with QI on it? Glad to see that sandy have become the new host aswell, always enjoyed her on the show!

Alex Rae : Still, wouldn't it be polite to first speak in Swedish and then ask if you could continue the conversation in English?

Eric Burkheimer : Is it just me or does Noel look like a middle aged woman?
