    Crazy. How does something like that get accepted to start with. And for that much money?

    The thing is, someone had to make/come up with all these sculptures. It's not like a real con man who just takes away with the money and doesn't actually do any of the work.
    So I'm of two minds about this. What was the point of it all, really?

    It's something large, red, and alien that has invaded Finland, and then there's a little soldier making a stand.


    Is that Sweden forced into a square IKEA box?
    Jamen jag tror att han skäms, och har gömt sig. Vårt universum det är en av dom otaliga spermasatser som Herren i sin självhärliga ensamhet har runkat fram för å besudla intet.

    That it is.

    For Britain we got a empty space, which I think isn't the most commonplace negative stereotype he could have used for us. What he should have done was make the silhouette of Britain out of very ugly teeth.
