Laurel is of Scandinavian descent, thus the tale of:

Ten T'ousand Svedes
Ten T'ousand Svedes ran tru da veeds
Chased by vun Norvegian
Ten T'ousand Svedes ran to da shore
In da battle of Copenhagen.
T'roughout da world da Vikings sailed
To Ireland and to France
Dey even found America
Vun afternoon by chance.
Vay, vay back in history
Back ven da vorld vas new
Norvegians searched all over
to find some snoose to chew.
My Grandpa says, and he should know,
Da Svedes made up their minds
To beat da Norsky Vikings
And kick a few "behinds."
Dey fished for Lutefisk and Torsk
It helped to make dem strong
And you and me, ve know a Norsk
Cannot do nutting wrong.
But history, so my Grandpa says,
Shows dat da Norskies von
Dey clobbered all da Svedes and Danes
And made it lots of fun.
But Svedes and Danes were envious
Of Viking trips and raids
Da Viking shields and helmet horns
Made all dose folks afraid.
Ten T'ousand Svedes ran tru da veeds
Chased by vun Norvegian
Da dust from da veeds made snoose for da Svedes
And dey called it COPENHAGEN!
