Ah, the bachelor party: a man’s final chance to revel in his manly freedom by drinking to excess, putting on a panda costume, running around clutching a live chicken, and setting himself on fire.

Or that’s how they seem to do it in Sweden, at least? Honestly, foreign traditions are so weird.

We hope the groom-to-be wasn’t too badly burned in the moments before he thought to charge into that nearby lake, but the lecture he gets from his fiancée is bound to be far worse.
