    The song here is performed by Øystein Sunde, Norway's Tom Lehrer of a sort.
    Øystein Sunde is a word equilibrist more than a satirist and his songs tell zany stories rather than using the macabre as the comic element.

    This song, "Hest er best som pålegg" tells of an urban guy who got the foolish idea he should learn how to ride a horse, with suitably disastrous results for everyone but the horse (it does, however, aqcuire a taste for modern art).
    Sorry for the irrelevant, dumb video made by someone else:
