Colourful Scandinavian Houses

While at the MCM London Comic Con I was next to the Polish artist Kinga (she has a patreon too) who told me about the word Kurwa.

This is not the first time England has been peeping.

Potato shaped like a potato

Potato shaped like a potato

Last weekend I was invited to the Raptus festival in Norway and every night they served traditional Norwegian food for us.

The first and third night I was so excited about the food. It all tasted great and I was having a blast. The cured meat was a dream, the potatoes were unusually delicious, the fish was like nothing else and they had the best butter I've ever tasted.

But on the second night they served us raspeballer and I was so confused and upset. The potato balls tasted like soggy cardboard and the meat was so salty it hurt my gums, and I usually eat food so spicy Indians tell me to take it down a notch. And I wasn't alone. The other guests had to excuse themselves too, except the one American who loved it.

So sorry Norway, I like your food overall but I'll never be a fan of raspeballer.

A simple man with simple needs

A simple man with simple needs

When I worked in landscaping an endlessly kind and friendly Turkish man whom I worked with loved to make this joke. I don't even know how many times he told it.

It's not a big thing anymore, but when I was a small child and people from Turkey were very new to my country I do remember wondering why ALL the married women were overweight. It had to do with status. Having a big wife meant having enough money to buy a lot of food.

White on white hate crime

White on white hate crime

Ah Poland. Europe's punching bag.

That's also why it doesn't make sense to talk about white and black culture outside of USA because the cultures are so different from country to country in Europe and there's a pecking order going on amongst white people. Even people from, say, the Middle East will rarely say "You white people" but rather "You French/German/Norwegian/and-so-on people"

Now, is it racism? It depends on how much you buy into the idea of race. A Dane who hates Swedes wouldn't call that racist, but people from Eastern Europe start to look different enough that it's often called racism, and in a way that plays into the negative feelings too. It's complicated.

More than you

Iceland has the highest number of almost everything per capita because they're so few people. Now they'll have the highest number of people who qualified for the World Cup too.
