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”.

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

The first comic with the countries answering your questions. Hope you are prepared for them not being completely honest with you (or themselves). :D

The bridge Sweden is talking about is the Oresund Bridge that connects Denmark and Sweden. The people in charge are even talking about building a second bridge for some reason.

And before I get bombarded with comments from Finns yelling, “But it was Sweden that-!” I’ll cover all that in another comic. Have patience. :)

Swedes are the stereotypical geeks of the North.

"Perkele" is one of the most common swearwords in Finland. In this case, the only word Finland can (or will) say, and he only say it on very special occasions. I’d sleep with one eye open tonight Sweden...

And it’s probably best you don’t ask what Denmark and Norway are up to. If Sweden isn’t with them and is willing to talk to Finland, it can’t be good. :XD:

"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.

And here he is! Bondage top Sweden. Yes, this is about as erotic as it’ll get. :XD:
I didn’t plan for the comic, but one thing just lead to another...

I don’t understand why some people find it hard to imagine Sweden being top/dominant. He may look like a sissy, but he sure can kick ass when he wants to. It’s just a matter of motivation. :D

The day the Iraq war started

The day the Iraq war started

Europe was mildly surprised. And pissed.

If you have no idea who or what Leeroy Jenkins is, here is the original video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkCNJRfSZBU
A Leeroy Jenkins is basically a gamer who has no time for plans and simply storms right into the battlefield, ruining the rest of the team’s plans.

The real inspiration for this picture came from this remix of the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-N6sqdrJzVo I just kept seeing America storming right into a minefield with a bunch of countries stumbling after. :XD:

Seriously, in those days Europe saw America as the world’s Leeroy Jenkins.
