swedish meatballs

It's up in a bunch of places already (lifeiscarbon, psfk), but a new trend has struck in Sweden. Allegedly, random acts of sculpture have become a craze in the Scandinavian country.

It all started when a state sanctioned sculpture of a dog was placed on a roundabout and vandalized. The next day, somebody had made their own dog to replace it.

Now more and more homemade dogs are popping up all over the country on roundabouts or elsewhere. They don't even have to be dogs. The trend calls for a:
"...dog or other animal made from any material which, often concealed by the darkness of the night, is placed in a public place..."
Now that Americans take their music trends (PB&J, I'm From Barcelona, The Knife, Jose Gonzalez) and their fashion trends (that new hipster scarf, skinny jeans, etc.) from the Swedes, maybe I should start fashioning a rottweiler for my front stoop.

Just dawned on me that Swedish only has one E.
