Happy Independence Day!

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

I just had a discussion if you’d say “Glad Självständighetsdag” or “Trevlig Självständighetsdag” in Swedish for “Happy Independence Day”. I said, yes. In principle… I guess you’d rather say “Trevlig självständighetesdag”, but both sounds weird in Swedish. Perhaps since we don’t have or celebrate an Independence Day. Sweden don’t have any. So I guess we are still suppressed, or something… ????

No, but seriously, we’ve never been invaded since the wars with Denmark and Norway ended (in 1600-something), and I think the usual Swedish way of pretending that nothing happened by not acknowledge it, is very much at play when it comes to those wars… (War, what war? We never lost anything, and we certainly wasn’t invaded. That land was Danish and/or Norwegian then. So it wasn’t Sweden so we cannot have been invaded…).

And when it came to WW2, well, let’s not mention the war… The sweetest way to describe Sweden towards Nazi-Germany is to say we bent over backwards to please Hitler and his pals. They we’re A-OK. Hell, Goering even had a summer-cottage in Sweden and was married to a nice Swedish-girl named Karin (or Carin). And everyone was Nazi in Sweden! Until the tide turned… and then we became very Anglo-friendly all of a sudden, and those damn Krauts could go fuck themselves. And no one was nazi anymore. Until recent years when the old nazis started a new party in Sweden calling it “The Sweden Democrats” – but let’s not mention that to the voters. They might be upset. Let’s just brush it in under the carpet, as we say here in Sweden. Donät mention it. Pretend it was never so.

And by the way, Sweden was never occupied during WW2. Nope. We were neutral! And handed over shitloads of iron-ore to the Nazis – as much as they could use. Just to be extra neutral. And we let their soldiers go home on leave through Sweden in special trains. That’s how super-neutral we were in those days.

Interesting changes to “the normal”

Saturday, May 20th, 2017

The 1901 Dorland’s Medical Dictionary defined heterosexuality as an “abnormal or perverted appetite toward the opposite sex.” More than two decades later, in 1923, Merriam Webster’s dictionary similarly defined it as “morbid sexual passion for one of the opposite sex.” But in 1934 something had changed about that… all of a sudden it changed, to be “normal”.

Ricky

Friday, May 5th, 2017

Flera Ã¥r efter att jag flyttat Konstministeriet till Löberödstrakten fick jag veta att Ricky Brush en gÃ¥ng bott i byn. Den store Ricky! Den mannen spelade i egen liga. Jag önskar fortfarande att jag kunde sett minen pÃ¥ hans postgubbe dÃ¥ denne efter lÃ¥ng tids brÃ¥k äntligen fÃ¥tt Ricky att falla till föga och flytta ut brevlÃ¥dan till tomtgränsen. En sÃ¥n smÃ¥skuren liten jävla postiljonsfascist! Förneka den store Ricky den bekvämligheten det innebär att kunna öppna dörren i morgonrock (eller morgonstÃ¥nd) och plocka in tidning och postskörden. Men nädÃ¥. Icke. När Ricky till sist piskas in i fÃ¥llan kommer sÃ¥ Postis Pär lunkandes pÃ¥ sin runda – och där skulle jag vilja sitta med en kubikmeter popcorn och en iskall Dr Pepper. För Ricky hade spikat upp sin brevlÃ¥da vid tomtgränsen. PÃ¥ en 5 meter hög stolpe. Leverera Posten nu dÃ¥ din lille jävel, kan man fortfarande höra viskas om man vallfärdar till Rickys grav.
