My Squarehead Girlfriend

A year behind the rest of the HBO-viewing public, we've just started watching Deadwood on DVD. I was amused that the toughs refer to Scandinavians as "squareheads," and have taken to calling my Minnesota girlfriend, with her Swedish roots, My Squarehead Girlfriend. Even asked her won't she please, baby-baby, please, lemme hear some of that squarehead talk. She -- pictured here taking a chocolate cake out to the cabin for a birthday dinner with my mom -- refuses to oblige and, taking her own cue from Deadwood, calls me a Limey Bastard.
