Explanation:
Hallo !

One possible translation would be:

The pig and I, on the way to work

gris = pig
og = and
jeg = I
pa = on ( a with a ring over it)
arbeids = work/the work
vei = way

I wish you good luck !

Me and the pig on the way to work


Explanation:
The trick here is not the content but the poetic timbre!. Tone is exactly right, however it's nigh on impossible to equal "jeg" and "vei". Maybe - "me and the pig, on the way to work" rings truer (although that might be breaking some grammatical rules).

cheers.

Andy
