Sauna Time


Well, Finland is a mute! He couldn’t tell them what they were supposed to do, so he had to show them!

I just knew people were wondering what Finland’s hair looks like, and seeing as I never intended it to be a mystery, here it is.

And don’t worry. I won’t stop drawing these comics for a loooooong time. You just won’t get a new one every single day. :)

You should totally do a comic where Finland and Sister Finland fight over if it should be called vihta or vasta. :D That's a regional dialect thing over here - in the east they tend to say vasta, whereas the origins of vihta is from the western coast, but it's become a more commonly-used word somehow. Maybe Sister Finland could be from Savo (Eastern Finland) and wear one of their costumes, too? Like this one from Kuopio, maybe? http://www.kansallispuvut.fi/puvut/img/kuopio_np.jpg Or, from Kangasniemi, with a dark blue skirt with small folds, and large white apron, a buckled vest of dark blue fabric with groups of small stripes in shades of red, and a white linen cap, accessoried with a white shawl that's attached with a silver brooch, and black shoes with white or dark socks, depending on the season of the year (white, of course, is for summertime). This would be great!

Why does Finland in the second to last panel look like Jesus to me? I blame that confusing Christian part of my family.

They have the same sauna tradition in Russia. That's how I first get to experience it.

Blonde hair and Viking culture are two different things, Finland is one of the world most blode country ;
"The last natural blondes will die out within 200 years, scientists believe.
Jonathan Rees, professor of dermatology at the University of Edinburgh tells that
Researchers predict the last truly natural blonde will be born in Finland - the country with the highest proportion of blondes".
In this case Finland should be in comics "Uberblode" because it is country with the highest proportion of blondes. :)

Direct quote;
"According to this map – and if you really believe that blondes have less brains –a nasty fall like that is more likely to happen in the central parts of Norway, Sweden and Finland, where at least 80% of the population is fair-haired, the highest figure in all of Europe."
Frequency of fair eyes in Europe;
