Swedish King & Queen

AWESOMELY Obnoxious

Olympic Handball Fans

8/9/2012 9:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0809_king_carl_quenn_silvia_ABACAUSAKing Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden and his wife Queen Silvia have officially earned the title of most AWESOME MONARCHS EVER -- cheering their faces off last night at Sweden's Olympic handball match against Denmark.

Their hilariously annoying battle cries must have worked too -- because Sweden advanced over its rival, winning 24-22.

Hungary's next in line -- but little do they know ... Sweden's got two incredibly rich (and loud) secret weapons.

Apologies to the meatball-hating, anti-IKEA, ABBA-bashing party pooper sitting in the front.

We always read about how content the Euro life is in the Baltics...The utopia of social services, long holidays, peddling bicycle through the Tulips... I see Swedes,Danes, Finns all seem to explode! And this is Summer when the sun shines 4 days a week.

Sweden Idol is better than most of the Idol shows, almost all of them play guitar while they sing in the auditions, and they bring in better talent.
Abba was cool, so were the A-Teens later when they covered Abba songs...especially the two cuties Marie and Sara

I guess the lady covering her ears didn't think there would be any cheering going on at a sporting event. She should have stayed home and watched old reruns of Benny Hill.

what makes the lady in front a meatball-hating, anti-IKEA, ABBA-bashing party pooper? Some people (like me) have ultra sensitive hearing and certain noises at certain volumes can really hurt. Doesn't mean she's a party pooper. :P

I've had people like that behind me, easiest way to deal with them is tell them to shut up and show some consideration, or throw them off the balcony if they keep it up, in the name of being good sports they could just yell....."Weeeee!"...on their way down.
