True Blood - Simple Swedish 3
Nix, I think the Stockholm accent is the nicest sounding Swedish accent there is. And I'm not just saying that because it's the one Alexander Skarsgård has and I can't tell them apart anyway.
Actually, the rest of Canada dislikes us Torontonians too! I didn't realize it's the same in Sweden. What a strange phenomenon!
And I love my Stockholm accent, too, I've never understood why other Swedes think it's so horrible. I do understand why they don't like Stockholmers, though - we can be quite patronising and condescending towards the rest of the country, since we think we are the only real city people in Sweden and everybody else are just bondläppar (that's the plural of bondläpp - and you know what that means now, right?). Because, you know, they are.
I guess us Torontonians are equally terrible - other Canadians will tell you we're unfriendly and command too much attention compared with the rest of the country. They have plenty of other gripes too, but as a Torontonian I'm just too self-centred and ignorant about the rest of the country to care what those gripes are.
Sounds like Stockholmers and Torontonians are peas in a pod - or would be, if we were actually the big city people we think we are. (Sweden has about 9.5 million inhabitants, so you can probably figure out how "big" Stockholm is in an international perspective.) We're infamous for calling anything north of Uppsala "the North" and thinking that everything from dialects to climate is exactly the same everywhere. But who cares, they're all hillbillies up there anyway.
