Yes, a sad day. As nice as the joke with the coffin is, I really don't understand that everlasting fuzz about left over screws and unclear instructions. My impression is that every moron could assemble Ikea stuff... as long as s/he sticks to the instruction and doesn't try shortcuts or things s/he thinks to know better. The items I ever had problems with where cheap Ikea-copies, but never any genuine Ikea-item. And most of the time I was impressed by the craftspeoples' and engineers ingenuity, who designed the item. My big living room table, for example: I could take all parts out of the box in just the right order to assemble them, and when I was ready, there was a table upside-down in the box, just turn it over and - tadah!
I guess the poorly assembled coffin is due to Sweden's lack of concentration while he was mourning.
Rest in peace, Ingvar, and godspeed.

I'll never understand peoples struggle to assemble IKEA furniture.

Ingvar was a good man and a great leader. He'll be missed dearly.

Let's all hope he has better luck making it to heaven than we do finding the exit to IKEA.

I'm Finnish and I can totally relate to Finland's sadness. If I could build a whole house, it would be filled with IKEA. I'm like a kid in a candy store when shopping there and no one really wants to go with me because I became so annoying. "OH MY GOSH LOOK AT THIS! I WANT THAT AND THAT AND THAT AND THAT.... THAT'S SOOOOOOO CUTE LOOK!" I know, I'm weird when it comes to IKEA.

I'm not sure how many others feel this way. But yeah, I still think IKEA is very popular here in Finland.

I, too, was freshly escaped from prison (a scary divorce), was close to broke in a new city, and needed furniture for my tiny apartment. Thanks, Mr. Kamprad. My first few days of freedom were spent putting a dresser and an armoir together. I followed the directions, and the sense of accomplishment was a great way to start a new life.

RIP

Finland is way too sad here. For an average Finn, the reaction would be more of a shrug. We don't really care about the passing of the IKEA founder.

Come to think of it, you've given Finland more emotion here than in the Finland 100 years celebration comic, @humon.
