Good thing they didn't ask Iceland. They'd end up with Astronaut hákarl.

Okay, Sweden, just lie doooown on this couch here and relax.
Take a deep breath.
There you go. Good boy.
Now, tell Dr DarkMage all your worries.

"Well, Dr, this one time Åland and I walked in on my sister whipping Finland's nuts with a notted shoelace, and--"

On second thought, why don't you have a beer first?

Freeze dried human remains stored in coffee containers is a temporary soloution, could they use them as fertilizer, we do after all contain 3.4% Nitrogen and 0.4% Potassium.

I expected a comic about Finland being the happiest nation on the planet (according to the UN). I just wonder how that'd look here.

But I'll settle for Mad Sweden. :D

Well, sweden is right; if you dont put sentimental value on old bags of inedible meat. Norway is just taking it a step further, as the dusted remains can easily be turned into fertilizer and thus become "food" (I sincerly hope he didnt mean to eat the body itself... for health reasons)
Repatriation and such is just a silly idea thought of by silly people with silly beliefs.

That's actually a pretty good idea. Mars should be a terrific place for naturally freeze-drying things. Anything freeze-dried is crumbly and therefore easier to compact. You'd want that on a spacecraft or Mars base, I'd think.

I'm actually fine with recycling the body as food. So long as the person died first and also didn't die of anything that could be transmitted to the humans who consumed it. Cannibalism is a lot less objectionable to me as long as it isn't a head hunter (IE murder for food) situation. But I might be one of the few who thinks that. In practice, I'd still have trouble eating a dead human though.

The body should be used for something, either science, fertilizer, food or all of the above. The persons dead, it stops mattering what the body is used for.
