Swedish Norwegian Mumbo Jumbo

So, Karl Rove hates Sweden. Who doesn't? I hope he has better jokes about the Swedes than the ones i could come up with. Hmm..he is known as the brain but you never know.

A swede was in a nightclub in New York, dancing with a beautiful woman. He whispered into her ear, "I love you." She smiled and whispered back, "I love you too!" There was a little pause, the swede was thinking, then he whispered, "I love you three."

There was this swede who once got home and found his wife in bed with another man. He was so angry that he got a gun and pointed it to his own head. "NO! Don't do that," his wife begged. "Shut up woman! You'll be next," the angry swede replied.

Karl Rove might have Norwegian ancestors but he should study some more so he could hate Blix in a more informed way. Listen to the real thing from a genuine Norwegian baby seal clubber.

If a well-informed person like Karl Rove does have a bad opinion of Sweden, it would be because of its neutrality during WW2, which involved turning back Norwegian refugees at the border (in the early part of the war), selling large amounts of iron ore to Germany, and granting passage for German troops into Norway. Contrasted against Norway's more courageous military and civil resistance, this part of Swedish history is looked down on in Norway. As well it should. The neutrality continued during the Cold War, and is part of the diplomatic tradition Hans Blix comes from, so in moderate amounts this would actually be a relevant grudge.

Swedes: Cooperating with nazis, laughing at Norwegian refugees and promoting French behavior. You just gotta hate them!
