Swedes are liberal, yet they always vote for the social democrats. That’s because they are so conservative. Or, as the well-known saying goes, the Swedes are a colorful people. They think blue, vote red and eat green.
Swedish English (Swenglish)
Although the Swedes generally have a very good command of the English language, sometimes they just don’t get it right.:
- "Please take off your clothes and follow me
to the whip room."
(Translation: May I take your coat and accompany you to the VIP room)
- "His name is Öberg, a zero with two pricks."
(Translation: The letter ’o’ with two dots = ö) (prickar = dots)
- "You’ll have to show your leg before entering", "Please keep hanging on the line", "He has many balls up in the air" - more Swenglish
