Happy belated birthday to the King of Sweden

It was King Carl Gustaf's 60th birthday on Sunday, April 30th.

He's nowhere near as well-known as the British Royal Family, and he looks a lot like a puppet off Thunderbirds, but he's my adopted king, and he looks great on egg cups.
I hope that the Swedish government "shelled" out some more of my tax money and got him appropriately "smashed".

He does look great on egg cups, but what kind of a king is he? I just met a touring band from Sweden today looking for directions to the highway. Unfortunately, they weren't playing here, just passing through. Then I randomly hit your blog again when I got home and there was the king of Sweden.

The King of Sweden is well-respected by seven, I mean several people.

But they're not Swedish.

Where can I get a King O'Swedes eggcup or at least a T-Shirt?

He also looks pretty good as the largest of a set of nesting dolls of the Swedish Royal Family. We received this as a Christmas gift from my in-laws a few years ago. Really.
