Insjön, a tiny Swedish hamlet with only 2,000 residents, is the center of a bizarre incident involving pigs, lasers, and the hit game, Pokémon Go.
Two teenage boys were playing Pokémon Go, and trying to catch ’em all around 10:30 pm near a local lake when they ran into a couple wearing rubber pig masks. The couple approached the boys aggressively, making strange noises, and waving a green laser in their faces.
Fortunately, the kids were shaken but otherwise unharmed. This was not, however, the end of the incident.
A short time later a small traffic jam began to build up on the local highway as motorists slowed down or stopped to watch a couple porking each other at the side of the road.
I agree with Bernie Sanders that we should be like Sweden: Sex pigs halt traffic after laser attack on Pokémon teens https://t.co/lwoJpGoKcI

It was the same couple from the lake, still in their pig masks, and wearing only tee-shirts’ one with “Queen” written across the front, and the other with “King.”
The couples’ activity was less of an issue than the fact they were desecrating the site of the town’s iconic waterwheel. Entertainment being in short supply in Insjön, the police were only called when traffic became an issue.
By the time the police arrived, the piggy pair had fled, leaving a smiling population, several uncaught Pokémon, and a blushing waterwheel.
The couple is still at large.
