Not a Yahtzee

Not a Yahtzee

You might have to say “yahtzee” out loud to get the joke.

Pretty much how the German government reacts whenever Nazis are mentioned, if German soldiers does something violent somewhere, or if anything that could in anyway make people think of Nazis happens. They’re quite paranoid about the subject.

I don’t even know. I just wanted to draw a picture of Sweden and his sister, and then this happened...

One has to wonder how these two ended up so different. Or is Sister Sweden more intelligent than she leads on? And is Sweden more wild under the serious facade than he will ever admit? We may never know.

Finland is a fool if he thinks he can keep Sister Sweden to himself. She’s a bigger whore than Denmark, which makes her a pretty big whore.

And I really should include Iceland more often. It has recently come to my attention that people think he is a sissy because he is all pretty and sparkly, when in fact he is the most hardcore of them all. This guy jumps into volcanoes with a parachute on and rides the hot air out again for fucks sake!
And yes, he will land on them in a few seconds.

Norway in Denmark

Norway in Denmark

“It’s wonderful to be Norwegian in Denmark” is the slogan of a travel agency, that as the slogan suggests arrange vacations for Norwegians to Denmark. The TV commercials have become so infamous in Norway that it has spurred several versions of the slogan like “It’s wonderful to be Norwegian in Norway” and so on. Here is one of the adds with English subtitles http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7GwfACf-vk4

At least three times a month I get notes from Norwegians pointing out how naughty the slogan sounds when you look at the countries as people, and when I got three this week I decided that it was time to put it in a comic. :XD:

Denmark does not do pretty and sparkly well.

Inspired by this wonderful video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2oZQW4-lSI :)

Rise and Shine or go to Hell

Rise and Shine or go to Hell

Of the three Scandinavian countries Norway is apparently the most religious.

I made it sound rather Catholic here, but all the Scandinavian countries are mainly Protestant.

And before I get asked about it, I made Saint Asbjörn up, as well as his religious deeds. :XD:

Nordics like Fish

Many many Swedes and Norwegians have suggested that I made a comic about “surströmming”, which is mainly a Swedish dish, but can also be found in some parts of Norway. It smells so bad that it is mainly eaten outside in the summer, and many Swedes enjoys exposing Danes to it just to see their look of horror at the smell.

Hákarl is a special Icelandic dish made of rotten shark, that is more traditional than normal, though you can still find it in supermarkets. It is said to be the most disgusting food in the world.

Pickled herring can be found in all Nordic countries, and is particularly popular in Denmark. In fact, a Danish adult who doesn’t like pickled herring is seen as rather weird.

And non of this is of course supposed to be eaten like this. You are supposed to put it on bread. :XD:

And to the newcomers: “Skål” is the Nordic word for “cheers”.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

All the Nordic countries claim that Santa lives within their borders (Sorry that I forgot you, Iceland).

Ever since I was a kid I liked the idea of there being more than one Santa, and I imagined them distributing the work between them and visiting each other in the summer. So no matter where a country believe Santa to live, I think they’re right. :D

SatW to the Big Screen

SatW to the Big Screen

"Scandinavia and the World" will never be made into a cartoon anyway, so I decided to make my own fake screencaps.

The only reason why I made two pictures was because I couldn’t fit Sweden into the first image.
And of course Norway can talk with animals.

I have no idea what the story would be, but apparently they spend a lot of time in a forest. Suggestions as to what is going on in the pictures are welcome.

There’s no cleaver (or not so clever) joke about countries in this comic. It’s just Sweden, Denmark and Norway hanging out. :)

Costume Party

Very smooth distraction, Sweden. :XD:

Yes, America thought it would fit best if he was white for this costume.

I don’t know how well known it is out in the big world, but in Denmark is common knowledge that H.C. Andersen was omni/bisexual. And unlike with Abraham Lincoln it’s not up for debate, because H.C. Andersen wrote about his love for women and men alike in his diaries, and it even got a mention in some of his friends’ diaries too. In fact, it didn’t seem like he was trying to hide it at all, and he never got in trouble for it. He stayed a virgin all his life though, so Denmark is acting a little out of character. :D

I won’t tell you what the others are dressed as. I hope you can tell.
