#LastNightInSweden

Grateful to Pres. Trump for inventing a Feb. 17 terrorist attack in Sweden (never happened), because Swedish twitter has run with it. Many, many riffs on the horrors of IKEA, herring, Abba, and the Swedish Chef. (Also, I have just found out from Joseph that Sweden has an official Twitter account that is handed off to a new randomly-selected citizen weekly. I love that.)

Per the BBC, the Swede on deck was school librarian Emma Johansson.

Mind you, there WAS a horrific terror attack by Daesh on February 17. In Pakistan. At a Sufi shrine. It killed at least 88 pacifist Muslims who were engaged in dhamaal, a meditative ceremonial dance (which you’d maybe recognize in the west as “whirling dervishes“).
