The Smell of Swedes

Call me crazy, but I think this headline is pretty bad.

Here I am, minding my own business, checking out, and suddenly through no fault of my own, I am thinking about the smell of a mid-game Henrik Zetterberg. Now granted, there are probably one or two hockey fans out there who enjoy pondering such things, but I would propose that these fans are few and far between. Not only is this headline disturbing from a hypothetical olfactory standpoint, but it’s really dumb to boot. I can think of ten better headlines:

How Swede It Is!
What a Bunch of Swedeies!
Swede Love To Beat the Blackhawks, But They’re Too Good!
You Bet Your Swede Bippy!
Victory is Swede
Don’t Fill Up On Swedes, You’ll Spoil Your Dinner.
Hitting the Swede Spot in Detroit

Okay fine, that’s only seven, and some of them are just as disturbing as the original. My only point is that this headline is very stupid and if the NHL is going to pay someone to write stupid headlines, they should just pay me.

Although, I warn you NHL, my services normally don’t come cheap. But because I love you, I’ll give you a Swedeheart deal.

    Oh Katebits…you shouldn’t Swede the small stuff.

    The NHL should totally hire you . . . some fresh new puns like yours are definitely in order.

    I heard the Wings are actually looking to sign a few Danish and Norwegian players as well. It’s not quite the same as what they’ve got now, but it never hurts to switch to artificial Swedener on occasion…

    Hee. Yours are much better, Katebits. I always yell out How swede it is! When one of the Canuck Swedes score.
