Swedish lawmaker caught with his pants down

STOCKHOLM (AP) — A Swedish politician who wanted to show his new tattoo to followers on a social media site accidentally revealed far more than he intended.

Lars Ohly, former leader of Sweden’s Left Party, posted a picture of the English soccer club Liverpool’s liver bird tattooed on his leg. What he failed to notice was that his genitals were visible in the background.

Ohly quickly removed the picture after posting it Wednesday on Instagram but couldn’t stop the avalanche of comments in social media.

Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, of the rival Moderate Party jested, “Congratulations – finally, after all these years you have made a genuine public breakthrough.”

Ohly made light of the embarrassment and said he would be more careful when he posts online.
