(The Citizen)   It turns out the ax-wielding pirate running around town wasn't on a homicidal killing spree. He was simply taking part in a children's treasure hunt   (thelocal.se) divider line 17

Children's treasure hunt? I'd have used a pitchfork.

Well ok then. Carry on.

It's basically a cure. For not being an axe-wielding homicidal maniac.

We have to take things seriously when you think about all that's happening in the world," explained Peter Borg of the local police.

Okay that headline was much more disturbing when I read ax-wielding as ass-wielding for some reason.

/ax-wielding pirates, what is the world coming to.

Yes. Well, when I see an ax-wielding pirate running around town, I shoot the bastard. That's my policy.

That's too bad. I'd have like to have seen an axe-wielding pirate on a killing rampage.

Would he have said "Aarrrrr" when he was shot?

Armed with an ax. That means you have an ax with you? Or you replaced your arm with an ax? What's illegal here again?

So people see a pirate with an axe and assume the worst?

If they knew anything about sailing they would realize that ships carried axes not only for combat, but for emergencies. The sheets (ropes) holding sails are thick and if you had to cut a sail lose in an emergency or risk losing a mast, you grabbed an axe.

Historically accurate costumes rock.

The man was also informed that it was incredibly inappropriate and illegal to walk in a residential area armed with an axe

What happened, Sweden? You used to be so cool ...

They right. It is not credible to me how inappropriate and illegal it is walk around a residential area with an axe in sweden.

/I thought they were more like a european Alaska. We often hangout in my neighborhood with axes, drinking beer, chopping wood.

Axe? Here it's Husqvarna 3120XP FTW. (and a Log splitter). But I guess it's the same beer wise.
