How to Recognise a Swede Part 2

They find it morally reprehensible to not at least TRY and eat from all the food groups.

They talk about politics at house parties.

They actually care whether their mobile phone meets the fashion standard.

People ask them if they have polar bears on the streets and they try to spread the myth further by stating it's true.

They think they are better at English than they really are.

They love to use English quotes and slang.

They're really not offended anymore by getting confused with Switzerland and the fact that nobody can find Sweden on a map.

Using fuck, shit and other bad words isn't really that bad for you.

They can name at least 7 different kinds of jam and produce 4 of them in their own kitchen.

They go downtown on a Sunday and don't expect to meet a single soul during a 30 minute walk.

Do Swedes have moose? I'd like them more if they had moose. The Norwegians have lots of moose, which, I believe, are helping to destroy the planet with all their methane emissions.
