Right out of the paper

I just thought that I'd share some of the things I've read in the paper lately... Please have some oversight with my not-so-appropriate comments.
Want to get rid of your problems?
Apparently a 54-year old police man started to give indecent proposals to a 27-year old woman he was questioning about an assault case. I just love this sentence he said to her (maybe something I should use more at work... or at home... ;-)):

Do you want to fuck your way out of trouble?

Practically harmless.

I saw an ad for how women could get bigger breasts (yes, I'm just a simple man with simple interests) the "natural way", which apparrently was through some pills and such. But what really got my attention was the slogan they had:

Practically harmless compared to surgery.

The only way I can interpret this is that it's risky as hell, but there's at least something out there that's riskier...
Look at me!
The Swedish Migration Board has gotten a lot of criticism lately because they celebrated with champagne and cake after a woman was rejected and not allowed to stay in Sweden. Another story I read this morning was about a supervisor dealing with a blind immigrant that came to their office and needed help with his apartment. Apparently they weren't getting along in the discussions and had a somewhat heated argument, resulting in the supervisor exclaiming:

Look at me when I'm talking to you!

Tactful. I just love it when the most emphatical and professional people get the most important posts...

    Haha, it's a crazy country we live in. As for me, I seldom read the papers. There is too much bullshit in them. Sometimes it feels like everything is just made up by the papers. And that can be true at some cases, just look at how Aftonbladet (I think it was) posted an article about Persbrants (a famous swedish actor) alcohol problems.

    Damn! Sorry for the double(now tripple)post.

    @Kalle: It was Expressen and they are getting sued.

    How about the convicted sex offender who got a subscription of Viagra.

    Or the politician in Sunbyberg who will get severance pay (fallskärm) in the total amount of 11.5 million SEK for the next 25 years when he got fired for using his work phone to make calls to sex lines.

    … there is more (S) & (M) are giving themselves about 8 million more to use to promote themselves in the upcoming elections …

    Sometimes I feel like moving to the US because there you at least will now what to expect.

  • Haha, great observations – thanks :D

    Kalle,

    It seems like your trigger finger was itching! ;-)

    Mats,

    Yes, those were the other stories that were eyebrow-raising. However, I'm not sure you would find it better in the US…

    Steve,

    Thanks!

    Arní,

    Well, most people seem to think so, yes… :-)
