IF Iraqi's or Somali residents went this gaga over trival bull, you'd all come clamoring down on them to "go back home!" Yet, here we are, forced to believe this is just good old wholesome Norwegian relations. It's obvious they are trying to plant the seeds of discord and get Norwegians worked up into a frenzy to over throw our government and reign terror over the land of 10,000 flakes.

Another over-the-top headline. "Norwegian pride is busting out all over" Balderdash, there has been no no excitement over their planned visit other than this article. I'd bet dollars to donuts that of the almost 900,000 folks with Norwegian ties, not even 20 pct. could name the king and queen.

A way not to embarrass yourself, is to not worry about embarrassing yourself. They royalty today isn't like the royalty of the Middle Ages. You will not be beheaded or put on the rack. They seem like just normal people.

Why do I torture myself by reading these comments? I thought to myself "surely, there can't be any negative comments to a cute story like this!" But no, there are comments about how this is much to do about nothing, about how the King is a German impostor, how most Minnesotans with Norwegian descent wouldn't know who these people are...on and on. Sheesh. Do folks always have to pee on a parade? It's just a cute story. Next time, go pee on an electric sake fer cryin' out loud.
