The Next Time I Visit Ikea

The next time I go to Ikea I have decided that I am going to have some fun. I have decided that I want to replace the store signs with some of my own devising.

As you may know Ikea is Swedish and virtually all of the items in the store are marked in English and Swedish. If you take a look at the Ikea catalogue here you’ll see what I am talking about.

Since most Americans don’t speak Swedish I figure it should be relatively easy to start an Ikea revolution. How many of the Ikea employees are going to realize that any changes have been made.

For example what would happen if you saw an easel and saw that it was called an Artfouker. It is Swedish, you don’t speak Swedish. You wouldn’t think twice about it. It should be easy to go through and make a few changes here and there.

Want something for your bedroom? Maybe you need to buy a Floozieliker. In the bathroom you’ll probably need to get a Strudelsocker or Coksenhoser.

The kitchen could use a few Meathosen and Gorken.

See the possibilities are endless.

    I love it! You wouldn't even have to make up words; just use the wrong words, e.g. sweet potatoes, meatballs and gingerbread become sötpotatis, köttbullar and pepparkakor. Hey, I was hungry when I wrote this. Anyway who wouldn't want a couch in their living room called the Köttbullar. It comes in sötpotatis orange and pepparkakor brown. Are you sure that isn't what they are already doing?
