    I don’t mind trucker lesbians, so long as they’re coffee-drinking trucker lesbians. 

    And who knew MC Paul Barman made it to Sweden?

    Oh, I see, so they’re pre-vetted everyday Swedes. That makes it a lot more reasonable, but also a lot less interesting than what I initially thought, that they would just be picking people at random.

    I’d love the same process to happen with @Canada… sadly the account is orphaned by a benevolent holder who can’t seem to put it into the appropriate hands! Perhaps the BoingBoing exposure will help.

    I can’t wait ’til it’s Lizbeth Salander’s turn and she posts all that damning confidential information exposing rampant misogyny in the  Swedish tourism agency.
