Politics, Danish Style

Politics is a profound and serious subject in Denmark.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- A Danish political party named partially after a male sex organ has claimed responsibility for covering other parties' campaign posters in penis stickers.

The P.I.K. party -- an acronym for Penge i kommunekassen, or Money in the Council Coffer, which also spells out "pik,"** a crude form of the Danish word for penis -- took responsibility for covering posters in yellow stickers shaped like penises, The Copenhagen Post reported Tuesday.

"We admit we did it," party Vice President Niels Andreasen said. "But we've tried to distribute them equally among all parties' posters."

I don't think you'll find any Brits labelling all our politicians as pricks ... oh, hold on.

** Strange flashback to 1970s subtitled scandinavian, ahem, 'arty' Super8 films.

Perhaps we should start a "Freedom For UK" party, and plaster FFUK stickers on the forthcoming election posters.

You've got to snigger slightly.

Although I'm always a tad stunned as to how many people here in Britain actually have faith in our politicians and view their debates as something considerably more realistic than WWF wrestling, or whatever it's called these days.

Wrestlers aren't as well paid either.
