In the News: Five Things

Each week, our editors will highlight a handful of Swedish stories that catch our attention.

She appeared on Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel to show him a popular Swedish bar game, which involved a string, a pen and an empty beer bottle. Basically Pin the Tail on the Donkey: Drunken Squats Edition.
