The Swedish Piece

A friend told me that in Iceland they call the last cookie on the plate The Swedish Piece because in Sweden everyone is so nice so they won't take the last piece. You should leave it for someone else. I told my wife about my new linguistic discovery and she said that she used to work with a guy who was famous for always taking the last piece.
