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. Here is the unfortunate pic posted on Instagram before Lars pulled it off:

In the end he had no choice but to suck it up and explain himself:

“Ha, ha, I accidentally posted a picture on Instagram that showed more than intended. Now corrected. Summer’s wonderful. The willy picture is today’s hot topic. Completely by accident, though. The future will see a more thorough uploading review process.”

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.”

Stella Creasy at Jewish Labour fringe event…

“I was going to say something about how good it is being a Jew in the Labour party at the moment… but someone told me you guys don’t get irony.”
