Ahh, what the story DOESN'T say is that the beaver had just moved into Sweden's 60% tax rate and was trying to shelter his newly built home from the woman, who was a tax collector. He was trying to retire early and had just moved from Texas for the healthcare.

What he had actually shouted, although hard to understand in Swedish with those poor teeth, was "Government spending at 50% of GDP: this is a case of the tail wagging the beaver."

Terrible misunderstanding, but a lesson to be learned here. The poor beaver will next appear on a Michael Moore documentary on the need for universal income tax insurance and then on MSNBC (whoops, maybe Fox).
