IKEA is Weird


1. IKEA sells cheap but not cheap looking furniture.

2. IKEA's instruction manuals are minimalist, in a bad way.

3. IKEA sometimes tramples on historical artifacts.

4. IKEA sells Swedish meatballs?

Now, IKEA is opening hostels for shoppers who want to stay the night in their stores. All the Swedish meatballs you can eat!

I like the new look of your blog. I must admit I don't understand why anyone would want to eat swedish meatballs from IKEA. It's not like the Tar-zhay Cafe or anything.

We just visited the IKEA in Helsinki and picked up a nice looking bookshelf that I'm sure will last upwards of two whole years. But here they pronounce it "EEK-ea." And the meatballs gave me wicked gas.
