Even though Sweden and Denmark fought a lot over Norway, Norway was sometimes also just used as an excuse to fight.

Swedes and Danes gotta fight, and Norway made it easier, okay? That's one of the reasons Swedes and Danes aren't as pissed at each other anymore. After Norway broke free from both of us, we couldn't come up with proper excuses to beat the shit out of each other.

Yes, those are mascots from a real Danish theme park. The infamous BonBon Land. Here's a link to a YouTube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFrz7i-BneU

The park has many many mascots, but it's these more sexual ones that make the biggest impact on tourists. I went there several times as a kid (the park is mostly for children) and I remember not really thinking about the raunchy animals.

Don't let the sun catch ya

Don't let the sun catch ya

The facekini was invented as protection against the many jellyfish along the Chinese coast, but the women quickly learned that is was also excellent for not getting a tan. Light colored skin has traditionally been considered the prettiest in large parts of Asia, so the facekini was godsend for women who wanted to stay traditionally pretty while also enjoying trips to the beach.

Today facekinis are mostly used by the older generations. Younger Chinese people don't get the hoha about light skin.

Few people know what to do with their arms when they're talking in front of a group, but the Swedes are notoriously bad at it.

Professionals who teach Swedes what to do with their arms have good job security, lets put it like that.

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

The whale in the room

The whale in the room

I was talking with a woman from the Netherlands and somehow we ended up talking about how our countries treat stranded marine life. Of course the Netherlands have regular beaches where whales can get stranded, but the first thing that popped into my head were whales flopping over the sides of Netherlands' dams.

Banana Republics

Banana Republics

Sweden and Denmark are in a constant battle to see who can eat most bananas in Europe. At the moment Sweden is the ultimate European banana eater, but Denmark is closing in on them.

Air-tight defence

Air-tight defence

To be fair, the Danish police wasn't sure who had received training for using a specific gun, but the way they worded it when explaining it made it sound like they didn't know which police officers could use guns at all.

Also, say hello to North (or Grandpa North). He's a bid old fashioned and has trouble controlling his violent tendencies sometimes.
And of course I know Viking helmets didn't have horns, but here in Scandinavia we use horn-less helmets for serious things and helmets with horns for cartoony things.
