Re: "Borg sounds Swedish?" (First Contact) Why is it funny?

Of course, there's the famous Swedish culinary catchphrase "Bork, bork, bork" as well.

(I guess the OP might also refer to the fact that "Borg" as in Björn Borg or Göteborg/Gothenburg is actually pronounced completely differently in Swedish - it sounds more like "borrj" or "burry", with the final "g" interpreted either as silent or then as transformed into that "j" or "y" sound. That is, there's nothing Swedish about the way Lily says it.)
