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

"Yes you do."
Love it.
I also REALLY love Sweden and Åland together. They're so cute. This comic have made me want to visit Åland. Pah. And how will I make my parents agree to go there? Also, I don't know a thing about Åland, except that they speak swedish and how their flag look - just because I read this - so it's entirely your fault that I want to go there. :)
Dumb King Europe. If Åland want to be with Sweden, then he should be allowed to.

Do people from Åland really hate Finns? My Swedish teacher told me not to speak Finnish when going there because they would offended and angry. I'm sorry if you really feel that way
