Are you not entertained


I'm sick this week, so you get a simple one I really enjoyed drawing.

Denmark's park, Bakken, is so old it started out as a clean spring that people went to for water, then performers started entertaining the visitors, then food stalls were built and finally people started building amusement rides. It was just a natural thing that happened and somehow it kept going to this day. You have to pay for the rides but you can still get into the park for free and just wander around because that's how it has always been.

Wasn't Denmark's original amusement park named "England"?

This is why Denmark is such a happy country, they have understood the need to have fun for nearly 500 years.

Knott's Berry Farm (California) started out like Bakken (but several hundred years younger). As the name implies, it was a berry farm. The family fruit stand grew into a restaurant, and Knott added rides (and moved an entire ghost town from the desert!) to entertain the people waiting for a table. I don't know when they started charging admission for the amusement park. The berry farm is long gone, but the restaurant is still there.

Let's also not forget Tivoli Gardens! The second oldest and also probably our most famous!

Also get well soon, Humon! <3

I assume Finland has not yet gotten on board with this "Having Fun" thing?

Wow, Denmark's a pioneer in science. He invented the Helium Balloon 303 years early.

(just me being cynical)

The movies of director Anders Thomas Jensen, especially his theatrical debut Blinkende lygter (Flickering Lights), are treated as typical examples of modern Danish comedy, though we do have more lighthearted comedy as well.

I could try explain the aforementioned movie to you, but you'll get a better understanding of it by looking it up yourself. :P :XD:
