Cold reality shower
From the very beginning when I started making this comic Swedes and Norwegians have been telling me jokes about how weird Danish is, and how it's so weird not even Danes understand it so they have to speak Swedish or Norwegian to communicate. The Norwegian and Swedish languages are a lot closer to each other, so I can see where the joke comes from.
That's all well and good and I laughed along, until I started meeting a lot of Swedes and Norwegians at conventions and realized a lot of them honest to god think that Danes understand Norwegian and Swedish, even though Norwegians and Swedes don't understand Danish. Like, they somehow convinced themselves that the language barrier only goes one way.
So I'm here to tell you sorry, but we don't understand you either. A lot of Danes don't even understand Icelandic people when they talk Danish with an accent to us.
