Swedish Meatballs-Up

Another day, another politician posts a picture of his manhood on the Internet. Lars Ohly, upstanding former chairman of Sweden’s hard left Vänsterpartiet, got his meatballs out as he tried to upload a photo of his Liver bird tattoo.

The final word goes to ex-Swedish Social Democrat leader Hakan Juholt: “I’d planned to grill sausages tonight but now it’s going to be chicken.”
