Damn Kids


The temptation became too much. I had to draw it. England and his children.

It ended up looking like they’re in school, but they’re supposed to be at home doing homework. Yes, England is about to smack America in the back of the head.

Australia was a very naughty child, and England ended up sending him away, forcing him to learn to take care of himself. And it worked. Today Australia is a well adjusted man whom most people like.

America was a bit of a trouble maker too, but not as bad as Australia. Well, that was until he decided that he wanted to move out sooner than England would have liked.

Canada was adopted from France, and turned out to be one of the most polite and easy children England ever had under his care.

EDIT: Places like India and such weren’t so much England's children as his servants.

BritishVIking, if Texas had over half the geographic area of the US, instead of just 7%, and over 80% of the population, instead of just 8%, then we might. England has dominated the UK in a way Texas has never managed to do in the US (although not from lack of trying), politically, demographically, economically, and in every other way. Yes, technically those countries would be the children of the UK, not England, but it's a pretty quibbling point for a comic, where one by necessity need to over-simplify things. That is especially true, since this comic is more about perception than reality, and the perception is more that the colonies were of England than of the UK. One can debate its accuracy, but that is reality. Plus, the UK (or listing the components) is awkward, linguistically, than using England.

Ironically, you missed Northern Ireland in your parts. Yes, Ireland didn't join the UK until after all three of the colonies were originally founded, but before two of them were independent, and before Canada was consolidated into one British holding. And actually the US was colonized before Scotland joined Great Britain (although after Wales), as it was then called. Complicated? Of course. That's my point. You're oversimplifying as much as the comic is, so why are you so angry? You want to quibble about technicalities, but yet are guilty of ignoring other technicalities. Let her call it England, it's close enough...

It's amusing because most of the Australian convicts were sent away for committing petty crimes, like stealing a loaf of bread or other food in order to survive. There was also those who volunteered to come, as they were promised a free chunk of land and a new life. England was pretty ruthless

They are not England's kids - they are England, Scotland and Wales' kids. England had no empire before a Scottish king united the two countries. Stop spreading lies that England is a country - it is part of the country 'The United Kingdom' (or Great Britain). You don't call the USA 'Texas', do you? STOP IT!!!!!

What about NZ? We were England's children (and Scotland kinda, heaps of Scots emigrated to the South Island, hence why the South Islanders typically have a slight 'burr' to their kiwi accent). :P

Making Canada adopted makes so much sense. We do model most things after them, even if we are occasionally ashamed at what he's known globally for. But America has that brotherly potential in him.
