Sweden as Seen Through the Assange Case

The Julian Assange case makes Sweden look like a country that's governed by congenital idiots and populated with nothing but crazy sluts and lawyers.

Scott Adams:

I am always amused by the strange impact of unintended consequences. Julian Assange simply wanted to release some embarrassing information, have hot sex with a Swedish babe then have hot sex with an acquaintance of that same babe one day later. That’s just one example of why the Swedish language has 400 words that all mean “and your cute friend is next.”

But things didn’t turn out as Assange hoped.  The unintended consequence of his actions is that he managed to make Sweden look like a country that’s governed by congenital idiots and populated with nothing but crazy sluts and lawyers. And don’t get me started about the quality of their condoms.

Another great line:

Apparently Swedish laws are unique.  If you have a penis, you’re half a rapist before you even get through customs. And if your condom breaks, that’s jail time. What I’m saying is that the Club Med in Sweden is a nervous place.

Indeed.

    Huh….

    Recently I put “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” down (couldn’t get into it) and picked up “Let the Right One In.” The sexual perversion in either novel is enough to make one wonder why the Swedes are…well, weird about sex.

    @Herb – Just rent the DVD of the movie from Netflix. The Swedish production is very good. So far, the first two books have are now on DVD, the third is making its US theater run.
