What's the capital of Sweden?


The Teenager-in-Waiting was doing geography homework.

T-i-W: Mum, can you test me on the capital cities of different countries?
Me: OK, what's the capital city of France?
T-i-W: Paris.

Me: That's right. What's the capital city of Italy?
T-i-W: That's easy, it's Rome.

Me: OK, what about the Republic of Ireland?
T-i-W: Dublin.

Me: What's the capital of Sweden?
T-i-W: Ikea.

Absolutely fantastic!!! She could have answered Volvo and it would have been acceptable as well! Teenager's wisdom for you! Ciao. Antonella

Very, very funny! Who knows, maybe it should be changed to suit the times! Your T-i-W is very clever!

So are you actually saying, then, that Ikea is NOT the capital of Sweden?

Antonella, she was genuinely surprised that it wasn't right!

Mervat & Cybill - exactly! It's only a matter of time for sure.

Rosie, well as far as I know it hasn't happened yet but maybe one day!

Lisa - when I laughed at my TiW she got annoyed!

see you there! said...

Tell her Ikea can't be the capital of Sweden because it is a suburb of a city near me. I'm sure it is big enough to have its own zip code.

She's cute!
