Better than what I was imagining...I missed "med" and thought Uncle ate the enemy!

Wow! I did the same thing. With Duolingo I've come to expect funny sentences like these more oftenthan not.

Would be less traitorous though.

I keep wondering who this mysterious enemy is...

Well, from a Swedish history perspective, the Danes are the safest bet.

Is there a more specific background to this sentence? (Like, is it from a tale or referring specific historical events?)

No, nothing like that. It's just a random sentence.

Or the Russians in more recent (1800s) times,

Min farbror är spion. Berätta inte!

Characteristically off-the-wall DuoLingo sentence. Love it!

Perhaps he ate ants and his parents didn't like it.
