Hi forum, we have a problem...
In Lars von Trier's "Idioterne"  there is a famous scene (min 49) when Axel pitches his PR campaign for baby food in the form of just a litte sheet with the word BARNEMAD on it, claiming that it brings the idea "easy to handle". His boss explodes: "Didn't you know they produce baby food (barnemad)?". Alex responds: "I did'nt know. (...) But they call it "børnemad", not "barnemad". It could be a hit."

Now my questions. Since I think that børn is just the plural barn: (1) Is "barnemad" possibly an idiom for "childrens' play" in the sense of "very easy"? (2) could both barnemad / børnemad be used for baby food? Is there a diffeence?

I apologize if this for Danish speakers might by a silly question. It would be helpful for y interpretation of the film.

Thanks
Andreas Hamburger
