Silliness

On the grounds that it is, apparently, 25 years since the first IKEA store opened in the UK, I bring you this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mO7W2Tytfvk

And here are the words for anyone who wants to know…

Ikea by the very wonderful Mitch Benn

We come from the lands of the snow and ice
And gods of war and thunder;
With a swing of an oar, we would reach your shore
And pillage, rob and plunder.
We were ravishers of women, and capturers of kings,
But now we’re friends, we make amends,
We fill your homes with lots of groovy things.

Ikea!
We’ll get your houses looking sleek and modern, that’s for sure.
Ikea!
We’re conquering the world with our self-assembly flat-packed furniture.

You can maximise your living space and brighten up your walls,
Or just have a cup of coffee, and perhaps some nice meat balls,
And if you haven’t killed each other by the time you get to pay,
Perhaps you’d like to know who made us what we are today.
Our boss is Ingvar Kamprad, he takes his vodka straight,
He’s been our fearless leader since nineteen fifty-eight.
Now he has over sixty billion dollars in his grip,
He makes Bill Gates look second-rate –
Ja, screw him, and his stupid paperclip!

Ikea!
Our CEO is a legendary Viking entrepreneur.
Ikea!
We’re conquering the world with our self-assembly flat-packed furniture.
Ikea!

I feel so much better for that!
