Denmark wanted America to say this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQkvqJJvR9U because Danes love to make foreigners say it.

All the other Nordic countries joke that Danish sounds like Swedes talking with a potato or porridge in their mouths, while Danes joke that Swedes sound like drunk Danes, and Norwegians sound like drunk Danes singing. :XD:

Who to give Flowers

Who to give Flowers

America doesn’t like being confused. :(

Inspired by two things.
1) Canada getting flowers every year from the Netherlands as a thank you for helping them during WWII.
2) A conversation between two guys that I overheard. :D

It's Complicated

It's Complicated

Inspired by simply watching American news and TV series. America have very complicated feelings about breasts. :XD:

Originally America was holding a Teddy Bear, but he likes Teddy Eagles better.

Child of the Night

Child of the Night

Throughout the world Romania have two stereotypes: Vampires and thieving gipsies.

So of course Romania is a vampire who would rather steal your purse than drink your blood. Yes, I know that makes me a horrible person. :XD:

And yes, that is Sister England. Yes, I know you English people envisioned her differently, but this is the kind of women we see in your TV series and movies, so this is what she looks like. :D

Suggestive Talk

Suggestive Talk

All that just to try and pick up Sister Japan. :XD:

A silly idea that didn’t deserve an entire comic.

I was talking with a German girl about how more than half of Denmark’s tourists are from Germany, and that something like 70% of the people who rent summer houses here are Germans. And if we don’t get as many Germans as usual, we start to worry we did something wrong and that the Germans no longer like us.

She said, “Aw, don’t worry. We just need to see other countries every now and then, but Germany will always love Denmark.”

And the most natural response was of course, “Don’t tell Sister America that. It does not work with her Norway/Denmark ship” :XD:

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. ;)

Kindred Spirits

Kindred Spirits

Somewhere Sweden is doing a perfect evil laugh. :XD:

Lately a lot of people have drawn their versions of Sister Japan, so I thought it was about time I introduced her before too many people got disappointed that she doesn’t look as awesome as they imagined.

She’s very polite and quiet, but underneath it all she is quite the fangirl.

Belgium is well known for it’s comics and candy/deserts, so he is a geek with a sweet tooth. :D

Product Pairing

Product Pairing

Written Norwegian and Danish are so similar that on the back of products that has a description in several languages, Norwegian and Danish are usually mixed together, and the few words that a written differently are separated with a “/”. So “I love you” would look like this on the back of a product:

SE (Swedish): Jag älskar dig.
FI (Finnish): Minä rakastan sinua.
DK/NO: Jeg elsker dig/deg.

I’ve never thought about it before, but it was pointed out to me a few weeks ago that DK/NO looks like someone was writing a paring, like Harry/Draco. I haven’t been able to unsee it since. :XD:

Yes, when they really want something, they grow fingers.
:XD:
Denmark has a bunch of old crap. We have the oldest amusement part in the world (that’s still open), the oldest cinema (that has stayed in one place), the oldest kingdom, and of course the oldest flag that’s still in use. The other Nordic flags are basically just recoloured versions of the Danish one.

It is usually said that Betsy Ross made the first American flag, but there's a lot of versions of who designed it (One story even claims it was a French guy who did it). One version says that Washington, when having to choose a flag for the new country USA, insisted on simply taking the Danish one because he considered it “ideal for the purpose”. The Danes of course weren’t keen on this idea, but the Americans wouldn’t listen before the Danish flag designer Kasper Nielsen designed what is today known as “Stars and Stripes” and offered that instead.

The story comes from Norway and is hardly true, but it’s cute and silly non the less. :D

Boobs and a Joint

Boobs and a Joint

The two girls from SatW with the biggest boobs. I wanted to try and draw the difference between real and fake breasts.
I don’t think many people realize it, but everything about Sister Sweden is supposed to be real, from her gigantic boobs to her oversized lips.

Why, yes. That is indeed Sister Sweden’s lust face. Yes, she always looks at people that way. Your point is...?
And yes, the dog fell off in the small version. Shut up! It did!

Second picture is me sort of trolling the people who has been demanding of me that I include Holland/Netherlands in the comic.
Them: You have to include Holland! He would have tons in common with Denmark! Him and Denmark should totally get high together! Holland is known for being open-minded, gay-friendly, perverted and high all the time!
Me: You don’t say...MUWAHAHAHA!!!

I actually have a much less...uh, suggestive comic involving the both of them in the works, because the two countries do indeed have a LOT in common, to the point of being scary. I just wanted to start the depiction of their relationship out like this, just to make sure you can never ever unsee it. :XD:

EDIT: The dog's name is Ottawa.
