The Swedish government decided it would be a good idea to hand over the reins of the @Sweden Twitter account to regular Swedes, a new one every week. It's a chance to show Sweden to the world and it was all going swimmingly until a barmy lady by the name of Sonja Abrahamsson stepped up to the plate. Her bio alone should have been enough to set off a few alarm bells:
My name is Sonja and I’m a 27-year old womanlike human being from northern Sweden. I grew up in a little itsy bitsy village called Latikberg, witch means cloudberry montain in native swedish (samiska?). All people there are relatives and they all own tractors. In the autumn we had to pick up potatoes, in the winter we shoveled snow, in the spring we were confused and the summer forced us into growing thick skin and made us the bad motherf*ckers we are. Because of the big swarms of mosqitos that will drain you on blood until death unless you can take it.
When I was 19 years old I took my stuff (including my boyfriend) and moved to Gothenburg. Then I got pregnant two times in a row. Now I’m a single and low educated mother, but at least I don’t do drugs and prostitution. Instead I have a blog and I write things, and I also talk on national radio from time to time. I dont know what I want to do in the furure. Thinking about the future is not my speciality, apparently. But I’m excited to know if we all die the 21st of December.
Here are some of Sonja's highlights:
Once I asked a co-worker what a jew is. He was "part jew", whatever that means. He's like "uuuuh… jews are.. uh.. well educated..?"
Have to go. You can enjoy this video while I'm gone. I made it one day when I had a fever and nothin to do:
Everytime I tell people I don't like strawberries, they look at me like its a serialkiller on the run.
Everytime we see a dead reindeer here in Sweden, we get the urge to eat a lot of bread. Its just the way it is.
Look at this awesome picture of me and a dog!
Before WW2 Hitler was one of the most beautiful names in the whole wide world. I know. Its as chocking as dolphin rapists.
Its the first time my kids sees a printer. They're like "LISTEN!! Its music!! But look! Theres paper! WITH TEXT OMGOMGOMG"
In sweden KREATUR means domestic animal. So when you say ”beautiful creature” im thinking about meatloaf. Both the singer and the food.
Last but not least, as we say in Sweden: A danish lamp:
