Swedish Meanings...

Here in Stockholm, everyone seems to speak English. It's great except the only problem is that I don't speak Swedish whatsoever! This has resulted in me mistranslating all sorts of things. What a disaster. For instance, this sign at H & M:

There's a 30%-off sale at the Slutarea? Damn! Needless to say I was disappointed when I found out it only a 30%-off sale at H&M, *sigh*

Although I have run into several of these signs and I've laughed at all of them, my favouritest thing has been this kid wearing this shirt:

I can only imagine all these little Swedish kids running around calling themselves "Wankstas." If only they knew it wasn't cool to be a Wanksta.
