He took of his clothes and started running towards Denmark

Here is an article from today's Sydsvenskan:

On Sunday morning a man stopped his car with Norwegian license plates on the ?resund bridge. He got out of his car, took off his clothes and started running towards Denmark. After a time he jumped from the bridge, 50 meters into the sound. He was observed by security cameras and taken into custody, unharmed. The man is described as being in his 40s, and was not carrying money or identification. The man was placed in custody of the immigration authorities awaiting deportation to Norway. One of the arresting officers said that lots of people enjoy swimming in the sound this time of year, but to do so after first paying a toll takes a Norwegian.

Now when they say stuff like that over there, does anyone get bent out of shape or is like here where they are kind of kidding about Norwegians and Swedes?

Absolutely no one gets bent over here about anything without the involvement of the government. All this stuff is in good fun around here-- except when they criticize Americans, then they are serious (and of course, there are serious criticisms to be made). Unfortunately, making fun of the Norwegians doesn't do any good-- they are still stinking rich from North Sea oil and healthy and happy.
