By now I am sure that you all heard the Sven, Ole and Lena jokes in which one or all three of these scanderhoovian caricatures are played as fools in various compromising and inconveniencing situations. Well often times, my name get substituted in these jokes.... by own non-bike riding relatives to boot! I tell them that must stop..........but they never do!
One day they will be sorry; believe you me!

Every nationality has nicknames -we learn to get over it.. We should not get bent out of shape if someone uses those names. Be more mature than he other guy.
