appelsin-cheese "Cheese!" is the English word used to bring a cheesy smile across your subject's face when taking a photo.  However, this same word in Norwegian doesn't give quite the same effect.  In fact, if you say the Norwegian word for cheese, 'ost', your subject will pucker their lips like blowing out a candle for the big shot.  So instead Norwegians use the word for orange, "appelsin", with, of course, the emphasis on the "siiiiiiiiiiin" for a big fruity result.
