News__ MAMMA MIA: SWEDES DO IT BETTER
There are some major stereotypes about Sweden. People think swedes are a bunch of beautiful blonds who smell like campfire and only concern themselves with ABBA, gummy fish, Nobel Peace Prizes and bikes. All these stereotypes are pretty much true. Swedish people are gorgeous ladies and gents who only shop at thrift stores, eat elk, and enjoy jogging and biking. Seriously. That's what they do. Finding kids with cool style was so easy it was overwhelming. Here's eight of the best:
