Is anybody denying Scandinavian ancestry this weekend?

Or refusing to accompany their wife to IKEA?  And not playing Abba records, and wishing they hadn't bought a Volvo?  And as for those Swedish meatballs...

We haven't been to war with the Swedes for over 200 years when they changed sides. Perhaps they'll do it again & it will be 21 vs. the Swedish goalkeeper.

Ian,
And as the whistle blows, I am sure they will all take you welcomingly under their collective wings, and even laugh at your re-telling of The Swedish Chemist Joke...

So do the Norwegians and Danes in Sweden behave like the stereotype Scots and support the other side?  Or is there nordic solidarity?
