Day at the beach

Day at the beach

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.

Too hot for this world

Too hot for this world

Heat makes the Nordics a little weird in the head, unless their country HAS LAVA COMING OUT OF EVERY HOLE MOTHERFLIPPING ICELAND!!!

The Faroe Islands are possibly the coldest of the countries all year round, so he really doesn't handle heat well.

Real True News

Real True News

The April Fools' joke about the Swiss spaghetti tress was first made by BBC in England in 1957. Afterwards they got calls from people asking for advise on how to grow such a tree.

It was later "borrowed" by Danish news. Afterwards they started getting calls from annoyed wives who knew spaghetti was made from flour because it said so on the packaging, but their husbands wouldn't believe them because why would the news lie?

So close yet so far

So close yet so far

Most Danes are really bad at telling Norwegian and Swedish apart.

Case in point, I was watching Twin Peaks with a friend who complained about the terrible Swedish some of the characters were talking, and then it turned out they were Norwegian.

Auroras can be quite serious business up here in the north, especially because some have more than others.

New Year 2014-2015

New Year 2014-2015

Happy New Year everyone! May the next 12 months (and the rest of your life) be filled with all the things you don't necessarily want but are good for you!

In Denmark it's a tradition to jump from a chair (or anything really) right before midnight so that you set off in the old year and land on the ground in the new year for good luck.

When this was first explained to me as a child, I though it meant you could jump whenever and skip ahead to New Year if only you knew the right way to do it.

Christmas Kitten

Christmas Kitten

You get an early Christmas comic this year because I'm leaving for the holidays and won't get much internet time.

This creature is also known as the Yule Cat, but I thought Christmas Cat sounded funnier.
