The Faroes





 

The Faroes



Every time I posted a comic that had Greenland in it, quite a few people asked me, ”What about the Faroes?”
Sometimes I would think, “You live in Canada! How the hell would you know about the Faroes?!” :XD:

Well, here he is. Denmark’s other “colony”.
The thing about the Faroes is that Danes usually forget all about them because they’re small and they don’t hate us quite as much as Greenland. In fact, they even voted yes to staying part of Denmark, and it quite upsets them that Denmark doesn’t pay them enough attention.

When Danes do remember there’s a place called the Faroes, we usually remember them for spending our money and then complaining about us when we ask them to pay it back. :XD:

I don't mind how autonomous Greenland and the Faroes are, as long as they stay part of the Danish Realm.

Fun fact: Greenland and Faroe Islands actually like Iceland more than Denmark. Recently, Iceland and Greenland established a Friendship Day held in Reykjavík. I personally like Greenland and Faroe Islands very much. Iceland helped the Faroese to recover from a hurricane and the Faroese (and Norwegians) helped Iceland during the Financial Collapse in 2008.

Denmark's friends: Norway, Sweden, Germany and Holland.
Norway's friends: Sweden, Svalbard (Norway's twin brother), Iceland (Norway's younger brother), Denmark and Finland.
Iceland's friends: Greenland, Faroe Islands, Norway and Svalbard (older brothers), Sweden and Finland.
Sweden's friends: Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Finland, England and Japan.
Finland's friends: Sweden (I think), Estonia, Iceland and Norway.
Greenland's friends: Iceland, Faroe Islands, Svalbard and Canada.
Faroe Islands' friends: Iceland, Greenland and Shetland.

I think this is how it should be in this comic ;)

@SethBlizzard Icelandic is actually a Scandinavian language as well. But yes, I get what you mean.

Faroese is quite close to Icelandic, except that much of the grammar is very Scandinavian. So reading and listening to Faroese is a source of great amusement to Icelanders, 'cause it's so close our language and yet not. Pictures of Faroese signs will make Icelanders laugh.
