Swedish stereotypes?

Stereotypes can be somewhat amusing, no matter what it's about. But sometimes they can be weird and not make any sense at all. :)

One of the most common stereotypes I've heard about Swedes is that we are tall, blonde, blue-eyed and good-looking. One weird stereotype I've heard is that we love cheese. :XD: Another common stereotype is that we are very polite.

What stereotypes have you heard about Swedes? :)

I've heard that they're blond haired and blue eyed, that they're extremely liberal, and that they like their saunas. They also have a sing-songy language, and talk like the Swedish chef. ;)

A swede I used to chat with once worked as a trick rider and acrobat in a french circus. He trained and rode Arabian horses. When he was a boy his dad called him, "liten apa". I haven't heard much about Swedish stereotypes so I have no clue if anything he ever said about himself would be considered a stereotype. ...other than the fact that his name was Jonas and he said you pronounce that as Yonas. :bucktooth:

Never talk to anyone unless you know them. That is one of the few reasons I love this country. If someone tries to talk to me at the bus, I could just brush him off as a drunkard or a madman.

There's the Swedish Chef, but he sounds Norwegian to me.

Hahaha! :XD:
Well, it's nothing like Swedish, that I can assure you. :XD: And not Norwegian either, to tell you the truth. It's just plain old gibberish. :nod: Yup.
