Just Because It's Trending Doesn't Mean It's True

Best Debate Ever? Swedish TV Accidentally Puts Kids Show Subtitles On Political Forum

A Swedish political forum may be the most fun debate ever that did not include Donald Trump.

Viewers who were watching -- and not listening -- likely thought the politicians were on LSD because they apparently saying some pretty crazy things:

"Greetings, Earth creatures!" the Swedish environmental minister supposedly said.

"I will build the best sand castle in the galaxy!" the education minister promised.

"It's a shame that there's no kind of train that can travel underwater without a rail," the Swedish prime minister argued.

It seems a technical glitch caused subtitles for a kids show about dinosaurs to be superimposed on the political forum.

The screenshots were posted in Imgur.com by a user whose account name is TheBlondeSwede.
