The joy of giving

The joy of giving

It hasn't happened yet, but Norway is thinking of giving Finland one of their mountains for Finland's 100th anniversary of independence.

In Norway they celebrate their independence every year with a big party so it's no wonder they want to make Finland's independence day special too.

Obviously this is NOT what the army was used for, but I'd be lying if I said this wasn't the first image that popped into my mind when I read that.

Obviously the situation is more complicated, but this is pretty much the simplified version. Politics and money, you know.

I gave Morocco a fez because all Moroccans I've talked with were pretty proud of the hat's origin.

A Big F You

Denmark really did put Greenland through a lot of shit and fucked everything up like you wouldn't believe, and today Greenland has the highest number of suicides of any country (They weren't on the list for a long time because they were counted as part of Denmark).

The girl at the end is Sami (I know, I keep changing her design, but I think I'm finally happy with it) the indigenous people of Scandinavia. They were horribly treated by Sweden and Norway and, like Greenlanders, are still subjected to ridicule, so it's no wonder they didn't adopt the Scandinavian Cross either.

First off, of course I know Vikings didn't have horns on their helmets, but in Scandinavia it's common to use horn-helmets for silly goofy cartoons, and no-horn-helmets for serious Viking things.

Anyway, the transition from the Norse religion to Christianity was very gradual and fairly gentle compared to most other countries. For a very long time Scandinavians believed in both. To them the Christian cross looked like Thor's hammer when turned upside down, so they wore it like that as an amulet that provided both Jesus and Thor's protection.
