Clearly taking advantage of the upcoming Swedish election season, the vile Danes have decided to launch a sneak attack on their northern neighbors.
Danish fishermen have been caught fishing outside the Swedish island Hallands Väderö, a natural reserve, where both governments have agreed that fishing is illegal.
Yeah, sure. ‘Fishing’. It’s clearly an euphemism for an armed incursion. But, if they thought they could bully the Swedes around, they were sorely mistaken.
…shortly after the report was released the Swedish Minister of Agriculture Eskil Erlandsson called his Danish counterpart, Henrik Höegh, to discuss the situation. Höege had already told Danish radio that the fishermen would be punished for violating the ban.
‘Punished’. That’s another way of saying their going to kick their Hans Christian Anderson asses back to Copenhagen and give ’em a healthy dose of what for! That’s it. The Swedes have been patient enough with those Danish bullies. It’s time to settle this once and for all. The Swedish king needs to act now, kick the Danes out of Denmark and send them packing to Greenland or something (and they better watch out and not poach the Icelandic fishing grounds or they’ll have to answer to the Viking Squad. How hard could it be? I imagine the Swedish General Staff discussing the operation:
General Wingersson: C’mon, it’s Denmark. We zip in, we pick ’em up, we zip right out again. We’re not going to Moscow. It’s Denmark. It’s like going into Wisconsin.
General Ziskey: Well I got the shit kicked out of me in Wisconsin once. Forget it!
*For years I’ve been trying to elicit a rabid nationalistic response from Mrs. TwShiloh by describing a variety of ‘outrages’ against Sweden as part of an experiment to see how hard it is to turn a Swede into an extremist. She has thus far failed to take the bait and I have been unable to even get her to adopt and spread the reasonable slogan of ‘Moderation or death!’ among her fellow Swedes. Clearly more study is needed….
