Germany didn't agree to this foolery!

Germany didn't agree to this foolery!

It's an ancient tradition in Denmark to light huge bonfires on midsummer's eve to ward off evil, but in the 1920's people started placing a witch made of cloth and straw on the bonfire. It's believed that the bonfire will give her an extra magical push that'll help her fly all the way to the Brocken mountain in the Harz region of Germany where she can party with all her witch friends.

Nobody knows for sure, but it's speculated that the idea to place a witch on the bonfire was a suggested by German workers in Denmark, and that's why they fly to Germany.

Lucky Accident

Lucky Accident

This is old news, but nobody I know knew about it, so there's a good chance most of you didn't either. Not everything that can go wrong does. Sometimes you get a lucky accident.

And I know you probably expected something else this week, but quite frankly it's becoming difficult to joke about all the terrible shit happening right now, so I'll focus on more positive things. Expect to see a lot more of Sister America for a while.

Makeover of 2016

Makeover of 2016

I warned you America would get a makeover if Trump won. This won't be a one-off joke either. He'll look like this for the next four years. Eight if America picks him again.

Sister America will stay the same because she belongs to the American Left.

EDIT: I will be the happiest person a live if four or eight years a from now I'll have to eat every bad thing I've ever said about Trump. Sometimes realizing you were wrong can be the best feeling in the world.

But Nazi Germany is in this comic because a lot of neo-Nazi groups and the KKK have supported Trump publicly because of his xenophobic, racist and sexist views. So you might have voted for him despite of those things, but they voted for him because of it.

So I will be beyond happy if you and Trump together prove the terrified Lefties and the happy Nazis and clan members wrong.

Fishy Situation

Norway is the only one fighting back here because, quite frankly, the rest of us Scandinavians were scared little babies during WWII.

Eurovision 2015

Eurovision 2015

Don't worry, colorful speech bubbles aren't going to be a thing from now on. Just this once it makes it easier to see who is saying what.

Sadly I didn't have a lot of time to make this year's Eurovision comic, but no way could anything keep me from making one!

I have to admit I though this year was pretty boring. Not because of Austria, they did a great job, but because most of the artists decided to act classy which equals super boring Eurovision for me. I need lots of stupid costumes! Crazy dancers! Huge fireworks! I need Eurovision to be weird dammit!

The host country Austria got zero points. :(

Sweden was as always stoked to win. Nobody in the world loves Eurovision more than them, so no wonder they win so often.

Australia got to join this year as a special one time thing. They did great and are welcome in the future if the powers that be allows it.

The last two times Sweden won, Denmark won the year after, so it's a bit of a running joke in Denmark to say "Oh no, we can't effort Eurovision again already!" before we've even won.

My housemate came home and handed me an article from a Danish newspaper that had asked it's readers which countries they liked best.

It came as a surprise to no one that Norway was the runaway winner, because the Danes have historically always been incredibly fond of their old colony.

Second came Germany because the Danes have been working so closely with them, exchanging tourists and what not, that old hate from the war is gone.

It was however a huge surprise that Sweden was number three considering our history and how ill we speak of each other on a daily basis, but it would seem it's all talk and the Danes are warming up to their old nemesis.

Germans are crazy about the beach. If you leave them there, there is no guarantee they'll be the same person when you find them again.
