STOCKHOLM – News outlets around the world keep reporting that nothing exciting or noteworthy is happening in Sweden. Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt tried to dismiss the accusations early this morning, saying that events in the country take place on almost daily basis: “On my way to the bathroom I met Joseph Gustavsen, head of the Swedish opposition, he said good morning and smiled, but I distinctivly felt something strange in his voice. I don’t know what it was but things happen in this country. I’m sure there will be more events this week.”
Apparently not much is happening with Swedish civil society too after the failure of USAID/Sweden project, that simply found nothing to improve or reform. Head of “We Love Sweden As It Is” NGO Kripke Svensen said they had to collect signatures last month to ban an Aerosmith concert in Stockholm: “That band was just too loud. And that guy with the really giant mouth just seemed he could yell really loud, I don’t think our senior citizens whould appreciate that.” Latest population census indicated that 79.4% of Swedish is aged 65 and more and even the 30 babies that are born every year come with grey hair and peaceful wisdom in their eyes.
“Someone sneezed very loudly early this morning, my guys are investigating that”. ArmComedy spoke with Chief of Police Folke Bernadotte who told about major crime uprise in 2008: “A Stockholm senior citizen came home and discovered that her cat was stolen. We had to send both our policemen. The crisis was averted when the cat returned, supposedly after a month of hanky-panky with other cats. The situation stabilized after that.”
Sweden was last mentioned in news in 1983 when country’s only band ABBA gave it’s last concert. After 25 of silence, some map makers started printing maps that simply had a giant lake instead of Sweden. King Carl XVI Gustaf had to oranize a press conference, where he pesonally opened Google Earth and proved that the country still exists. More importantly King Carl XVI personally met ArmComedy after hearing on the TV channel about two foreigners arriving at Stockholm airport. He warmly welcomed us and asked many questions about Armenia – questions mostly related to obtaining visas and immigration opportnities.
