Make a good impression



The main reason why Åland isn’t too fond of Finland.

First off, mämmi looks like this http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:M%C3%A4mmi.jpg and is a special Easter dish in Finland.

A myth goes that when Sweden and Finland were fighting over Åland (the Ålanders wanted to be part of Sweden, and weren’t satisfied with Finland offering them autonomous status) and they asked the League of Nations (It doesn't exist anymore, which is why I put King Europe in the comic instead) for help, it happened around Easter. The emissaries went to Finland for a meeting, and the Finns served them the traditional mämmi to make a good impression. When the emissaries saw what was on their plates they said, “If this is what they eat, they should at least have Åland” :XD:

The real reason was that a number of small islands are between Åland and Finland, and if you sail to Åland from Finland, you can at all times see land. That wasn’t the case with Sweden.

Oh, and Norway isn’t part of EU, which is why King Europe is bugging him. :D

more Finns eat karelian pies than mämmi. I for one can't stand mämmi, but the pies are frigging delicious when eaten fresh from the oven and with some eggbutter (basically hard boiled eggs chopped to little pieces and mixed with butter)

I don't know why Finland would get Åland to cook, you do NOT want to eat ålandspannkaka, I repeat, you do NOT want to eat ålandspannkaka

You should know, that most people support independent Åland! The problem though is, that these "most people" are Finns in Finland. In Ahvenanmaa (original name befor Swedes killed all the natives) the local people never want apart from Finland, because of loads of money they get free.
