I came across this peculiar Disney item on eBay a few days ago. I don’t even remember what I was searching for, but I can tell you this much: it wasn’t a Swedish 1970s trading card of Daisy Duck dousing herself with perfume. This character has never been a favorite of mine, but for some reason this image made me laugh. Maybe I’m just reacting to the way she’s spraying the perfume directly onto her bill rather than her, uh, pulse points…? Where would an anthropomorphized duck wear perfume, come to think of it? And which perfume would she wear? And is “Kajsa” the Swedish equivalent of “Daisy?” I have no idea. So many questions.

I have a Swedish friend… I could ask.
Isn’t it random?!
My friend says it’s her name… Doesn’t translate to daisy though.
How weird! You think they’d just keep “Daisy” (not too difficult to pronounce, right?) or else use the Swedish translation for the name of the flower.
Looked up the translation…. tusensköna doesn’t have the same ring!
I think her tail (is it actually called tail for bitds?) would be a perfect spot.
I don’t know what it’s called, either — but it would give off effective “sillage”!
It was the idea! :)
