Stockholm has its own carneval (a small copy of the Gothenburg one, it turns out :-)
University students build floats depicting latest news and events, and parade through town.
In Sweden, we call the bumber cars "the radio cars", hence these radios on wheels.
They build their own floats of course. The whole building process is also a good party.
Swedes would recognize this one on the spot (from Donald Duck's camping trip with Goofy and Mickey Mouse)

This would be the Pirate Bay...

road worker stereotypes
"terrorist cell driven" (the fugitive appears courtesy of Guantanamo Bay)
The city grinds to a pleasant halt during the parade.
People watch from everywhere
Trucks are trailing the parade, picking up "debris"
notice the half bike on the back
