Mr Potatoheads’ family


I was just thinking about last summer, when we went to see my family for some barbecue. Well, as almost always, I got quite bored, even tho my family are funny. But then I found a potato!

In the bottom picture you can see my wife. If you try real hard, you can actually see that she thought it was enough.

The danger in high-speed hopscotch playing

High speed, indoor hopscotch play

and the danger it brings

I just want to warn you about playing high-speed hopscotch indoors. It’s not really a good idea. Here are some brutal photos of what can happen:

This is my colleague Linda, she's been very naughty and even if I warned her, she had to play high-speed hopscotch. Now you see what happens, Linda!

About the Icelandic people

Icelandic people

– what is going on up there?

I read this somewhere:

“Hats off to the Icelandic people. First they declared themselves bankrupt… Then they set their island on fire…. Anyone else smell the mother of all insurance frauds?

Haha say it ain’t sooo

Linoel Richie. Hello?

Lionel Richie

and his song “Hello”

I was listening to the radio before, and they played Lionel Richie’s “Hello”. Something reminded me about that song, that I use to wonder something as I watched the video? So I checked the video again at Youtube, and yes – there it is. The big issue.

-Hello, is it me youre LOOKING for? Hon är ju blind!?

-"Hello, is it me you're LOOKING for?" Hey, she is BLIND?

I went to a toilet the other day. The light in it was quite cool, so I decided to take a photo of my face.

and then I hade a face lift in photoshop.

Dizziness and a solution


– I have at least one solution for your dizziness

I had quite some problems with dizziness for quite some time. I thought I knew what caused it, but it kept coming back. But one thing made the dizziness go away (hopefully forever); 5 weeks at Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

Well it wasn’t just the location that made it happen, but jumping into the warm water and fighting with the waves, that did it! Wonderful! And shortly after those wave-fighting days, I went up on the Maya pyramid in Cóba. I wouldn’t have done that if my head was spinning hehe.

Water Misting Fan….or?

Water Misting Fan

This was the first time I did see one of those. Probably quite comfortable, but not so funny. But I found a way to make it REALLY funny! It’s kind of the weirdest transformer, one second you are feeling warm and use the Water Misting Fan, and the other second you are being attacked by a Water Fisting Man!

What the heck is a Water Fisting Man? Hell, Im staying out of that bath tub, man!

What the heck is a "Water Fisting Man"? Hell, I'm staying out of that bath tub, man!

The Assential Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan smells issues

– the Assential Bob Dylan

A while ago, mr Dylans neighbors complained about the smell that came from his toilet (read more about it here).

I thought it was so funny, that I decided to write down as many jokes regarding this as possible, by using his own song titles.

Here’s the list (hold the mouse cursor over the title, to see the original one):

  1. “Don’t stink twice, it´s alright”
  2. “Knocking on heaven´s odeur”
  3. “Maggie´s fart”
  4. “Poo’ boy”
  5. “Shit ain´t me, babe”
  6. “Slow drain”
  7. “Like a rolling stool”
  8. “You’re gonna shit me”
  9. “Brownsmell girl”
  10. “Buckets of drain”
  11. “If you sewer, say hello”
  12. “Bob Dylan’s 115th cream”
  13. “A moonbeam on your feces”
  14. “Tight connection to my fart”
  15. “Poo right to me baby”
  16. “Shit hurts me too”
  17. “Tell me that it isn´t poo”
  18. “I threw it all your way”
  19. “Don’t ya smell Henry”
  20. “Someone’s got a hold of my fart”
  21. “We better take piss-cover”

And believe it or not – I’m 34 years old! 😀

Butterfly – The Alcohol-based game from Sweden

The Butterfly Game

do NOT try this game at home. Well, don’t try it at all. I’m serious.

I will now tell you about a game. Or WARN you about a game, if you will. It’s called “The Butterfly” and believe it or not – it’s just dumb people that plays it. I really have to say that, because if you DO try this, I don’t want to be blamed if something goes wrong. So please, don’t.


The first game of  “The Butterfly” was, as far as I know, played in one of the silly suburbs south of Gothenburg (the 2nd biggest city in Sweden. It’s kind of small, but big, if you see it through swedish ears). Anywow, since people in the suburb of Lindome doesn’t have anything to do, they invent different kind of games. Or, the games are just an excuse to drink tons of alcohol, but since people still laughs at it, it’s just fint to call it a “game”.

It’s really simple. Here’s a check list of items that you need to carry out the whole thing:

What you need

1. One piece of aquarium
2. 2 windup running plastic fish
3. Quite many metres of cling film
4. A couple of litres of, as we call it in swedish, GROGG [a drink made by mixing spirits with a soft drink]
5. A bunch of thin plastic tubes, about 1 meter long each
6. A bunch of crazy and partyhorny friends
7. An open field, as a grass lawn, a tennis field or a huge parking lot.

How to do

1. First, pour all the “grogg” (yes, that’s right, from now on, you really need to call a drink made by mixing spirits with soft drink for GROGG) into the aquarium.

2. Take the two windup running plastic fish, wind them up and let them dive into the grogg. They will now mix it, so it taste good for a long time. Sort of.

3. Wrap the cling film around your stupid friends, until they just look like a bunch of stupid people that are wrapped…in cling film…uh.

3. Now, put your friends around the aquarium. Put them in a funny pattern, like a flower or a sun cross. Be gentle to them. Oh, wait, they are wrapped in cling film! You can handle them the way you want. For now.

4. Help them with the plastic tubes. One and each of the participants should have maximum one tube each. If they have more than one, it will be unfair. Put it in their mouth, preferably.

5. After a while, you will have all your thirsty friends laying around on the field. Very cosy. Hopefully, the weather will be nice (so you probably don’t want to do it in Gothenburg then).

6. On the count to zero (from a optional number), your friend will have to suck even more than before.

7. Since they are in the pupal stage, they are a bit vulnerable to dogs, cats, lions, crocodiles, talibans and other creatures. Be sure not to leave them there, but guard them with your life (sort of). This is, however, optional. It’s up to you, actually.

8. Depending on how many of your friends that was dumb enough to participate in this crazy game and how many litres of grogg you have, sooner or later you will hear a slurping sound. It’s the typical sound that appears when a bunch of people drinks the last of grogg with plastic tubes from a aquarium. You will recognize this for the rest of your live, probablyl.

How ever, as soon as the grogg is finish, the participants have to crawl up on their knees, raise on their legs, squeeze their arms THROUGH the cling film and scream – “I AM A BUTTERFLY“.

The first one who does this, wins.

So, good luck with your playing! And don’t blame me if something’s going wrong. I will be busy sucking grogg, maybe in a park near you.

How about some stand up comedy stuff?
