Size matters


I wasn't planning on posting a comic about this yet, but people have spammed me with the "ÆØÅ (Size Matters)" song so much that I thought I might as well post it now to let people know that yes, I have seen it.

(Before you click the link, know that the song isn't about who has the biggest alphabet in the world, but simply about the Norwegians desperately looking for something they have that's bigger than what USA has) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f488uJAQgmw

אני מרגיש זעיר ... (I feel tiny)
Hebrew has 22 letters. But, if you count the 'soffiit letters', than we have 27.
There are 5 letters that look different when placed at the end of a sentence, so they don't really count, I guess.
But hey, at least its less letters to burden your brain! Makes up for learning English and French as well!

But it sounds alike... where did Sweden get that from? Denmark maybe? xD

Fun fact: The Norwegians did indeed get ÅÆØ from Denmark, but after the SWEDES ruled over us, we elected a DANE as our king. Soooo... Norway liked Denmark better than Sweden ;)
