Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus are unamused.

I can see why there would be concern over the town council needing to be Björn again, but I'm far more troubled by the month of Cock in Gothenburg. (new window)

By the way, whoever's in charge of the ads, I will be sure to vote for John Kasich this Tuesday, a full 4 weeks after the election.

That's not something Drew does. John Kasich would have bought $X.00 worth of advertising time, which hasn't run out yet, so they will continue running the ad, until all the ad spots purchased are depleted; depending on the ad network, he may not be able to get a halt/refund in a manner synchronous with campaign finance regulations.

Don't blame me, I voted for Björn the Cat!

To be fair, you probably can't throw a Swedish meatball in that country without hitting a Björn Andersson.

Well, I didn't be the John Jackson and Jack Johnson reference, but at least I got in before the the Howard Johnson reference and the thread degenerating into a fart thread because somebody mentioned Blazing Saddles.

Doh!
 
2010-11-26 04:08:17 PM  
Beat, not "be". Doh, again!

Are there little plastic toys in those IKEA meatballs?

Yes, I know that Kinder toys are German.

But Germans have boundary issues.

THX 1138: That's not a very common name, and there are TWO of them?

Actually, in Sweden, Anderson/Andersson is a *very* common name. As is Björn. It's less surprising than you think.

/My great-grandfather was Jonn Anderson, and came from Sweden in the late 1890s.
