You got a call

You got a call

We all know Finland is going to throw that piece of wood at Åland any moment now and it'll evolve into a good old fistfight.

Why not a gun/knife fight? Don't be silly. Deep down they don't want to murder each other.

Can't touch that

Can't touch that

There's no bigger motivator than being told you're not allowed.

This is legitimately how the potato got popular in France.

Half human half Scandinavian

Half human half Scandinavian

I currently have a bad case of pneumonia, so I hope you can find it in your hearts of hearts to forgive me for making a one-picture comic this week.

I've been wanting to draw Sweden as a Dala Centaur for a while but could never think of a reason.

Refreshing Shower

Refreshing Shower

By now most of us know about Japan's high-tech electric toilets, but let's not ignore Brazil's electric showerheads and their scary wires sticking out of the walls in shower cabins.

Walking the thin line

Walking the thin line

I've been watching a lot of videos by Americans in Scandinavian countries, and something they often bring up is that Scandinavians rarely jaywalk.The Americans then jaywalk less too because they're afraid Scandinavians know something they don't.

The reason is simple though; pedestrians and drivers have an unofficial agreement to follow the rules.
"I don't jaywalk and in return please respect the traffic lights"

And it really is smartest to follow the traffic laws in Scandinavia because the drivers aren't used to people crossing the street at random and therefore aren't prepared for it. However, they're usually pretty good at letting pedestrians cross even if there aren't any traffic lights nearby.

And also the bikes. Tourists are never prepared for the bikes.

Poke Go where nobody has gone before

Poke Go where nobody has gone before

The amount of weird, ridiculous and scary things people have gotten themselves into while playing Pokemon Go is amazing.

And yet, the worst thing for America about being behind bars is that he can't play the game.
