How to Recognise a Swede Part 3

1. They really do want to attend the Nobel Prize Dinner.
2. They get really pissed off when Norwegians state that the Nobel peace prize is much more famous than the other Nobel prizes.
3. They all silently believe that Norway is just another province of Sweden that was granted country status to stop them complaining.
4. They get seriously sentimental when entering an IKEA store, outside the borders of Sweden.
5. They claim they are not royalist but actually do care what "she" will wear on the Nobel Prize dinner.
6. They know the names of a multitude of IKEA items.
7. They know how to pronounce these names and sigh when non-Swedes don't.
8. They don't really care about winning as long as Sweden beats Norway and Finnland, no matter what the contest.
9. They know that Sweden will never win the World Cup in football but keep partying anyway.
10. They are prone to stand in line without complaining
