Körd. Swedish for screwed (has no chance) {adj.} [coll.]. I’ll do what I can, but needless to say, you are good and screwed.

At least according to bab.la.

This is exactly how I feel whenever I am faced with the prospect of assembling my own furniture. And yes, the screwdriver does end up in my mouth as I try to start the thread of the screws, shortly before it becomes a lethal weapon if anyone happens to be standing in the way when I hurl it across the room in frustration.

Paco Pooley of 22769 ~ [bauwerk] could have used my finished shelf as his model for his entry in this month’s round of The Challenge. With Scandinavian as the theme, it was almost inevitable that someone would play on Ikea. And that’s exactly what Paco did.

Yes, the SLIkea box and the inexpertly-put-together shelf are playful. I’m sure more people than just me laughed when they saw it. It also includes a spare board and an instruction manual…which you can see roasting like chestnuts on the open fire. What use are instructions when they are only diagrams and not very informative, at that?

The Challenge runs throughout the month and you can find all of the designer’s goodies in their mainstores. Get there, or you’re screwed.
