The Scariest Ghost Ever

The Scariest Ghost Ever

Greenland showing off his ghost-taming skillz.

The belief in spirits is very much alive in Greenland. If people move into a new house or an office, it’s not unusual to have a shaman come and chase old ghosts and what not out.

It’s a rather sad stereotype in Denmark that Greenlanders are alcoholics, mainly because we usually choose to ignore that the alcohol problem was our fault. We introduced it into a culture that had never had it before and then just let it run wild.

Yes, I’m throwing these comics after you now because I have 10 of them just lying around waiting to get posted. :XD:

Oh how often I have been asked by Estonians, “Where is Estonia? We’re a Nordic country too!”

Problem is, the other Nordics doesn’t think so. :XD:

I asked around what the stereotypes for the Baltic countries were, and the overall answer was, “Very depressed people who wear grey and live in grey houses”

Estonia have a good relationship with Finland, which is why he doesn’t hide, but he doesn’t consider her a Nordic either which is why he doesn’t let her in. The Finland’ish hat is because Estonians are seen as being very much like Finns by the other Baltics.

Well, it speaks for itself.

I almost put Greenland in with it's 3.694,00 meters but didn't want to steal Norway's spotlight.
Thinking about it, I might do another one including Greenland, the Faroe Islands and Åland.

What did you say?

What did you say?

Ah, the languages of the Nordics.

Few people realize this, but Norwegians actually speak a language that is far closer to old Danish than Norwegian, while people on Iceland actually speak something close to old Norwegian.
Little FennoSwede is holding on to his uncle Finland because FennoSwedes are Finns who speak Swedish.

Though, you could really just say Swedish, Norwegian, Danish and to some extend Icelandic (But not Finnish) are nothing more than different dialects, seeing as we understand each other if we talk reeeeaaaaly slow and clear.

And it will of course never not be funny how some Americans treat British like a completely different language. :XD:
Sure, some words are different and it’s a different accent, but try coming to Europe. We’ll show you what “different language” means. ;)

Well, at least Finland had fun pushing them in...

Some old champagne bottles were found near Åland http://yle.fi/uutiset/news/2010/07/worlds_oldest_champagne_found_in_aland_1839322.html

Enjoy my tacky taste in tablecloth and nail polish. :D

Yes, they all live in my apartment, which is why I’m not keen on drawing too many countries. It can be pure chaos. Especially when America is around, because he insists on being the centre of attention at all times. :XD:

I'll probably do more comics/pictures like this. It was fun.

EDIT: Don't worry. This isn't permanent. ;)

Oh America. You have no idea what kind of women Finland has to deal with. :XD:

I debated with myself for a long time about who should be teasing Finland. The original idea was Denmark, but I also considered Russia and even Italy. I ended up with USA for two reasons:
The next comic will have him interacting with Sister Iceland/Norway/Denmark and that way he will have been in contact with all the Nordic sisters. But also because he is pretty much just a big teenager and still a virgin, so even one of these women would have been too much for him. :D

Yes, “Whopa” is a failed whipping sound. :XD:

Finland already thinks it’s bad enough to have Sweden’s child hanging around all the time. Now he has to put up with the little brat speaking Swedish too! D:

The reason why FennoSwede turned into this good looking happy brat is because his mother spoils him rotten. Which is also why Finland doesn’t just stab him: Mommy would not be happy. :XD:

As mentioned before, Scania http://humon.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2r8ybw and FennoSwede http://humon.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2qn9v9 have almost identical flags. The only thing that differs between them is the proportions of it, which I can’s show on the characters. But you will be able to tell them apart by FennoSwede’s sunglasses and rolled up sleeves. He’ll not stay this small forever after all.

And Åland is there to remind you that he speaks Swedish too, so this was inevitable. :D

I Love You

I Love You

The Nordics saying ”I love you” in their respective languages.

Norway really tries. No, the fish was not an accident. It’s supposed to be there. Fish and skis is the traditional getup for Norwegian men when trying to impress a lady. Flowers and bowties are just fancy modern stuff, but you gotta' keep with the time.

Inspired by this http://humon.deviantart.com/#/d2rnwtw
The little thing at Denmark’s feet is a ghost that will show up in a later comic. I had never drawn it before and doodled it on the top of the page, then realized that it would look cute next to Denmark here.

Sweden is giving Åland an USB key instead of flowers. Then America jump in pointing and yelling, “GEEKS!!!”
What? No, he wouldn’t yell that other thing. They’re not birds with long pink necks, silly head.

There’s a posibility that Iceland isn’t actually asexual, but self-sexual. We will never know, because the result is the same: We’re not getting a piece of him.

Finland with Sister Sweden because nobody else can make him say it. Yes, he has to be all special and say it in a way the rest of us don’t understand! >:C

Boys will be Boys

Boys will be Boys

Oh Sweden, ever the prude.

Ever since I started making these comics people have suggested that I should make one where the landmass of the countries equals penis size. That just seemed a little too obvious for me, but then it was suggested that it should be the population compared to the landmass of the countries. I thought that would be funnier and make more sense because population is a “hidden” number. Just like you can’t tell penis size just by looking at the overall size of a guy, you can’t tell a country’s population.

In Scandinavia the numbers from 2000 look something like this:
Iceland - 272,000
Norway - 4,400,000
Finland - 5,171,000
Denmark - 5,330,000
Sweden - 8,861,000

Obviously Sweden is quite well equipped compared to the others. :D
Also, to be more fair, islands that are part of a country have the same size as said country. That of course means their private parts shrink when they become their own country *looks at Iceland*. :XD:

This should not be applied to other countries, especially those that already have a stereotype for their privates. Please think of the poor Canadians! D:
