{Jon looks surprised, Mouse is holding a flag of Sweden}
Mouse: I declare this house the property of the Swedish Empire!
{Mouse walks away, still holding flag}
Jon: Garfield....
Gustavus Adolphus: How dare you speak that way to the King of Sweden.

The author writes:

This one mashes up two SRoMG ideas that got a few mutations, but mercifully never reached pudding-pops levels of overuse: #563 (the Gustaf-themed take on the idea started by #321) and #981.

I additionally blame the Swedish band Sabaton, specifically their album Carolus Rex, for my choice of which king to use for this.
