Swedish Hell’s Angels Sick, Sick, Sick
According to a Swedish police investigator, “It seems to be depressing being a member of this club.” According to a news report, 70% of the Stockholm biker’s club have been diagnosed as depressed by the same doctor and are getting sick benefits. Sweden’s welfare state seems to lead to problems: 20% of the workforce is on long-term sick leave or has taken early retirement.
Of course, if you’ve ever watched Swedish movies, you’d know how depressed the whole country is. Have you seen “Da Duve,” the short Ingmar Bergman parody that came out years back, where the pigeon kept pooping on everyone from The Professor to Death? No wonder they’re depressed.
