Everything in America is bigger...
Since Swedes seem to like to take their babies everywhere (including academic lectures), and because babies need so much stuff, it is necessary for Swedish "barnvagnar" to be large enough to transport small elephants.** Inevitably, barnvagnar take up a lot of room, oftentimes the space right in the middle of the sidewalk.
Getting off the bus today:
"Why do they always have to adjust their children right in the middle of where everyone needs to walk?"
(And by "everyone," he meant "we.")
"If you had children, you would probably need to adjust them too."
"Yes, if I had them, I would probably adjust my children a lot, but I would do it to the side, out of everyone's way."
"Because it is, after all, very important to have well-adjusted children."
"Oh my God, you're turning into me."
Let the bad jokes go on.
**In the U.S., it's a fairly common practice to leave the small elephant at home with the babysitter.
