Norwegian term or phrase: ellno
In a survey response from a young person about the marketing of a certain beverage:

"X gjør deg glad ellno"

I also found this on an unrelated blog from a teenager: "Ikke for og klage ellno"

I don't feel quite so out of touch after consulting Bokokmålsordboka/Nynorskordboka and seeing that those folks apparently have no idea either. :-)
