Party Crasher



Oh how often I have been asked by Estonians, “Where is Estonia? We’re a Nordic country too!”

Problem is, the other Nordics doesn’t think so. :XD:

I asked around what the stereotypes for the Baltic countries were, and the overall answer was, “Very depressed people who wear grey and live in grey houses”

Estonia have a good relationship with Finland, which is why he doesn’t hide, but he doesn’t consider her a Nordic either which is why he doesn’t let her in. The Finland’ish hat is because Estonians are seen as being very much like Finns by the other Baltics.

@Kakletron
As was the people of Normandy, Rus(now western Russia), the Baltic, Dublin and even Naples and Sicily during the 11th century, so that argument does not fit.
If we count latitudes on the other hand(with DK being the lower limit), then Scotland but not the rest of UK is legible, though all of the Baltic should be legible as well.
At this point, I think that it would be best to just classify the Nordic Council as a group of northern countries with a somewhat similar culture or history.

Hi, I'm new in this site, I'm portuguese and want to say that noticed unfortunately the absence of Portugal in this comics and in avatars. Please, have you already think put Portugal in comics. I think it's an important country in Europe

It's annoying that the Nordic countries were willing to allow Scotland status as a Nordic nation, but not Estonia or the UK as a whole.

I mean, for gods sake, my homeland of Yorkshire was literally founded by Vikings.

@Wilda @EstoniaNordic Actually, it is. Finland is a nordic country, the finns are a Finno-Ugric people. Scandinavia is a whole different term that excludes Finland but includes Denmark, while Fennoscandia includes Finland but excludes Denmark. Talk about a landmine of terminology :)

@Wilda Actually it's not, it's Finno-Ugric. Only reason they are ''Scandinavian'' is that they were annexed by Sweden.

Dear Nordic brothers,

I'm Baltic and I'm proud of it... Lets go back in history. XIV century Lithuanian Grand Dutchy was way more cooler, stronger & influential than Vikings living in Igloo among Polar bears.Unfortunately Russia burnt our country for centuries... In more than twenty years of independence we managed to do miracle and to build great economy & country. You can.call uncool and etc. I promise in next twenty years you'll.be the ones who begs us to stay in Nordic-Baltic economical region.

Estonia is not even Baltic. Lithuania and Lativa are. And Finland is not Nordic. Estonia and Finland are Finno-Ugric.

@MarcusZMonkey

viin = viina = vodka
ikka = always

The main meme of the song:
What gift will I bring to my friends / relatives living in the north?
Ikka viin = always vodka

And what should I do?
ikka joon = drinking, as always
