The roof is on fire, eh?

During U.S.A's early history British/Canadian armed forces burned down the first White House (or Presidential Mansion as it was called). This was (in part) retaliation for American troops destroying Port Dover.

Of Evil!

Of Evil!

Danish people had no idea how to rename American movies back in the day.

Feel free to tell me about some silly renamed American movie titles in your country and they might end up in a comic later. :)

Halloween 2015

Halloween 2015

Once again Halloween is upon us, and I'll never pass up an opportunity to draw these guys in costumes.

Denmark's costume is a reference to last week's comic.

Children are considered pretty sturdy up here in the North.

During the whole giraffe debate my Faroese housemate was like "I don't see why people are so offended by children seeing an anatomy lesson. On the Faroe Islands school children are shown how to kill a sheep"

Children will love it

Children will love it

Yes, those are mascots from a real Danish theme park. The infamous BonBon Land. Here's a link to a YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFrz7i-BneU

The park has many many mascots, but it's these more sexual ones that make the biggest impact on tourists. I went there several times as a kid (the park is mostly for children) and I remember not really thinking about the raunchy animals.

No pets allowed

No pets allowed

When I heard about the "No guns allowed" signs outside of some stores in the US, this was the first thing I thought of.

In Denmark we just have "no freaking beer allowed when will you fucking learn!?" signs.

Dance With Me

Dance With Me

I was reading up on Danish folk dancing, and the description "partner swapping" came up a lot. So much so that it's not unusual for women to end up with women and men with men at some point during a dance.

Also, screaming in each other's faces. There's quite a bit of that.

Danish folk dancing isn't set in stone, so it has become very common to add a bit of Russian flare to make it more entertaining to watch.

All of this can be seen in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyJSA7-KHqg
If it feels a bit slow, it speeds up at 2:26
