Never sit in front of the king of Sweden during Olympic handball (PHOTO)

LONDON — It's good to be the king of Sweden. Absolut flowing like wine at every political function. The power to deploy the Swedish Bikini Team at your whim. Able to wear perky colors whenever you'd like, because that's actually the flag.

It is not, however, good to sit in front of the king of Sweden during Olympic handball. Unless you don't value your hearing.

That's King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, with Queen Silvia of Sweden, emphatically cheering on his men's handball team in its win over rival Demark on Wednesday, 24-22. And that's a woman sitting in front of him that wishes he was slightly less emphatic.

No word if she decided to crowd-control the king like that bloke did with Aly Raisman's parents.
