Sweden Says Sweden Didn’t Invent Swedish Meatballs

May 4, 2018 / Posted by:

The official Twitter account for the country of Sweden dropped a bomb on the world. Only, because it’s Sweden, their bombs are made out of truth instead of uranium and baking soda (yes, I flunked chemistry). According to Sweden, Sweden’s sixth most famous contribution to the world (after ABBA, IKEA, The Swedish Chef, The Skarsgårds, and It Must Have Been Love), The Swedish Meatball, isn’t actually Swedish.

Here’s the post that nearly brought a nation to its knees:

Understandably, people were (pretend) shocked.

But because America’s second most famous contribution to the world (after jazz) is a heightened awareness of “Fake News”, many Swedes have countered this “fact” with a rebuttal argument.

That article is in Swedish so I’m not going to attempt to read it. Instead, here’s Alexander Skarsgård reading the longest Swedish word.

That’s a-mildly spiced a meat-a ball served in a creamy a-gravy!

Whatever was in that article was convincing enough to prompt a retraction.

Remember how shocked you were when you first realized Americans didn’t invent pizza, hotdogs or French fries? It’s disturbing to find that what you thought your whole life to be true, is actually something else entirely. I wonder what other Swedish lies we’ve been told.

Dear God, not the Muppets too! Next they’ll be telling us ABBA are actually alien creatures who came to earth riding a gold lamé meteor from planet Discothèque.
