Mullet

Oh, the ways I find to faff in my lunch-break. Today, translations of Mullet; apparently every country wants to blame them on foreigners and/or sportsmen. So Sweden (similar to Norway and Canada) has the lovely-sounding Hockeyfrilla (“Hockey hair”). The Danes (“SvenskerhÃ¥r) blame it on the Swedes. Poland goes all the way with Czeski piÅ‚karz (“Czech footballer”) — sports and abroad all in one.

All this from reading the blog of Amelia Andersdotter, who managed to win an election with the slogan “Vote for me because I know a lot about European cooperation, or because I have a mullet“.
