Scandinavia and the World
I Need Mountains

I Need Mountains

Just a little quickie, because the other day I was reminded of a funny thing that happened to me a few months ago.

A pair of Americans came into the hospital, and when I found out they were Americans I had to ask them what they were doing in Denmark, seeing as we don’t have a whole lot to come after. They then explained that they had heard that Scandinavia had great skiing conditions, and that the flight to Denmark had been the cheapest, so that was what they had come for: Skiing. Great was their disappointment then, when they flew over Denmark and noticed that there was no snow, and not a single mountain in sight.
Yes, of all the Scandinavian countries they choose the one country that has no mountains. At all. :)

Anyway, this is my stereotype version of America (It should be noted that all countries in these little comics will be made from a Scandinavian point of view). He is a tall guy because everything in America has to be BIG. He is well trained and toned and has dyed his hair blond because to us Americans seem obsessed with their looks, yet he is not a health-freak (Either that or they’re ridiculously fat). And he is rather clueless about the other countries. :XD:

Man, I've reread these twice now, and America looks so weird now right at the start. On the plus side, I get to read the unfortunate events that changed him over, over, and over in a cycle of hilarity and ridicule.

I'm so thankful none of those American stereotypes apply to me. ^^;

Oh god, I've reread so many times that America looks weird in the beginning.

Haha! I love it. I think most Americans have a bad stereotype about ourselves (clueless and whatnot) and maybe that's why we are obsessed with self help.

I just have to say that this is highly offensive.
I mean in your avatars you only have one American chick, and she has a rat dog. You couldn't have one with a Stetson, a bottle of whiskey, and a shotgun!? You dudes have no sense of stereotypes!

I so wish I could deny accuracy. Can I deny association? >.>

Is it just me, or do Denmark's eyes look weird?
