His photo shows the liver bird tattoo on his left calf, snapped from the side while he apparently catches some rays in the nude.
He has his left leg lifted and bent at the knee, and if you look not-so-closely, you can see his penis handling between his legs.
The 56-year-old immediately deleted the photo after realizing his mistake, but because this is the Internet, someone saved it and started passing it around until it went viral.
After posting the photo, Ohly dryly tweeted: “The future will see a more thorough uploading review process.”
The best part about this story actually isn’t that a public figure accidentally shared a photo of his junk. It’s the reaction the image got from his colleagues.
“Congratulations. Finally, after all these years you’ve made a genuine public breakthrough,” teased the country’s Foreign Minister and Moderate Party figure Carl Bildt.
Social Democrat leader Håkan Juholt also texted him, saying, “I’d planned to grill sausages tonight but now it’s going to be chicken.”
It’s kind of a beautiful thought, really. Politicians from opposing sides jokingly ribbing each other over an incredibly embarrassing thing like this. You know America. Opponents would be calling for his resignation immediately.
America, why can’t we be more like Sweden?
