Are you not entertained

Are you not entertained

I'm sick this week, so you get a simple one I really enjoyed drawing.

Denmark's park, Bakken, is so old it started out as a clean spring that people went to for water, then performers started entertaining the visitors, then food stalls were built and finally people started building amusement rides. It was just a natural thing that happened and somehow it kept going to this day. You have to pay for the rides but you can still get into the park for free and just wander around because that's how it has always been.

You have my gun

You have my gun

America of course has a tendency to make their own versions of foreign films, but they also edit foreign film covers and posters to make them look more aggressive because apparently Americans respond best to that sort of thing. I asked people how movies would be different if made ONLY for an American audience and I couldn't stop laughing at people's suggestions, especially those send in by Americans.

Sauna for a king

Sauna for a king

A Burger King in Finland has a sauna in it because of course it does.

All the American fastfood chains had to make some major changes to their recipes to be allowed into the Nordic countries. Burger King definitely isn't the worst offender. So be warned if you ever visit a Nordic country and craves fastfood: it's more healthy here but also more expensive because not only are the restaurants expected to use better ingredients but they also have to pay their employees proper wages.

Ever noticed that Christmas specials of British shows are always creepy and scary? That's because they have an old tradition of telling ghost stories around Christmas.

Cupcake Tragedy

Cupcake Tragedy

A fair few Danish people responded to Trish Regans comments on Denmark, and I noticed that not a single one of them could find a proper cupcake to use in their video. They were all like "Damn you Trish! Why must you remind me that I can't get a cupcake anywhere!?"

Free Greenland

Free Greenland

Some time ago it was very fashionable to fight for Tibet, but China was like a rock, so shortly thereafter people suddenly started yelling the same slogans but about Greenland and people felt a bit confused. Let's just say the modern day situation between Denmark and Greenland is different than China/Tibet. They have home rule, meaning they pretty much function as a independent country, and they get huge sums of money from Denmark to keep the country running and get it back on it's feed after all the abuse they suffered under Denmark. If they become fully independent they'd lose the money, so for now they choose to stay part of Denmark until they figure something better out. They vote on whether they want to become independent every so often, but so far it has always been a no. But worry not, it will happen some day.
