Fact for a rainy day

Fact for a rainy day

I promise I'm done with Nokia for now.

And if the whole Sweden/Denmark situations proves anything, it's that even old enemies can put their past behind them and become friends (but still make fun of each other A LOT)

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.

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.

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.

Buckle up!

Buckle up!

Years ago I talked with some Swedish people who told me about a French friend of theirs who was super proud that her car only had one dent, which came of as pretty bizarre to the Swedes.

I've been to France two times, and if you've been there too, you know how much sense that actually makes. Almost every single car we passed had several dents and scratches, and if you think people in your area are aggressive drivers you have not been to France.

And the reason why people drive like that in France is way more bizarre than you think, but I'll make a comic about that soon.

It was Norway, btw.

Every time a news story from America says a "Scandinavian" did something, all the Scandinavian countries look suspiciously at each other.

Eurovision 2016

Eurovision 2016

As per tradition, here's the yearly Eurovision comic.

This Eurovision had a lot of firsts: Australia became an official participant despite preforming last year, the show was shown on American TV, an American preformed, and not a single Nordic country made it to the finals except Sweden because they were hosting the show.

I actually hope America joins Eurovision some day because they'd be the most amazing drama queens every time they lost, and nothing says Eurovision like drama.
