I know, you think Scandinavians are staid, boring, normal white people, but I can tell you that deep in their bosoms beat the hearts of the weird. Witness the events in Insjön a few years ago.
It was Friday night in the village of 2,000 souls when two teenage siblings wandered out with their smartphones to play Pokémon Go.
But instead of finding Pikachu or Squirtle they soon came face to face in the park with a couple who must have seemed scarcely more real.
The teenagers’ mother, who reported the incident to the police, told newspaper Dalarnas Tidningar:
“They wore rubber masks depicting pigs’ heads and they started screaming and waving a green laser.”
A laser beam hit one of the teens in the face and the children rushed back home, shaken but luckily unharmed.
The masked shooters, who also wore T-shirts labeled ‘King’ and ‘Queen’, were next spotted by incredulous motorists as they had sex beside the hamlet’s waterwheel.
As one does. It wasn’t even midwinter yet, when brains turn into a hamster wheel of desperate crazy seeking release.
