claim/hint that Swedes could be boozers (could be seen as boozers....be careful Lena, political correctness...POLITICAL CORRECTNESS! )
But they are ...... its fact !

Centuries of being coddled by the state and the state realizing how much taxes people are willing to pay to get swilled.

Also..... the exemption that Sweden has from the EU to exorberantly (spelling might be wrong) tax booze was hotly contested in about 2000 by not the EU but by citizens of Sweden who emailed the EU arguing that Swedish govt be so to say told to 'stick it' ... and so the high tax will soon come to an end. And then the govt will plead poverty and raise some other taxes!

Getting back to my first statement ... I gather in my conversations with Swedes (and to some extent Finns) that its a real tradition gettting seriously swilled.

No idea on the origins of "Simon Says" but it is a very old children´s game.
