Peace Pipe Puffin' Meatballs

Sweden, SMC grants you collective, complete, and unconditional absolution for any dumb shit ever pulled in your glorious past. Your slate of sins is wiped clean. Walk in peace, fair-skinned Meatballians.
A totem pole taken to Sweden from British Columbia 77 years ago began its long journey back to Canada Tuesday. The most common story is that Olof Hansson, a representative of the Swedish government, had purchased it from someone who was not authorized to sell it.

The totem... is believed to be the first cultural artifact voluntarily returned to a Canadian aboriginal group from a country outside North America. More At CBC
