No pets allowed

When I heard about the "No guns allowed" signs outside of some stores in the US, this was the first thing I thought of.

In Denmark we just have "no freaking beer allowed when will you fucking learn!?" signs.

Great Nature

Great Nature

The Faroe Islands are almost all mountains, but not a single one of them has a tree on it, so a lot of young Faroese children get a huge "Wow!" moment when they visits places like Norway or Sweden.

People wanted to see more of Denmark's pig, so here he is, protesting stuff.

The Danish Protest Pig was bred in the 20th century, when Danes living in the area under Prussian rule were prohibited from raising the Danish flag and kept and displayed the Protest Pig instead.

So Protest Pig always stands up for Denmark when there's something he's uncomfortable with.

Eurovision 2015

Eurovision 2015

Don't worry, colorful speech bubbles aren't going to be a thing from now on. Just this once it makes it easier to see who is saying what.

Sadly I didn't have a lot of time to make this year's Eurovision comic, but no way could anything keep me from making one!

I have to admit I though this year was pretty boring. Not because of Austria, they did a great job, but because most of the artists decided to act classy which equals super boring Eurovision for me. I need lots of stupid costumes! Crazy dancers! Huge fireworks! I need Eurovision to be weird dammit!

The host country Austria got zero points. :(

Sweden was as always stoked to win. Nobody in the world loves Eurovision more than them, so no wonder they win so often.

Australia got to join this year as a special one time thing. They did great and are welcome in the future if the powers that be allows it.

The last two times Sweden won, Denmark won the year after, so it's a bit of a running joke in Denmark to say "Oh no, we can't effort Eurovision again already!" before we've even won.

My housemate came home and handed me an article from a Danish newspaper that had asked it's readers which countries they liked best.

It came as a surprise to no one that Norway was the runaway winner, because the Danes have historically always been incredibly fond of their old colony.

Second came Germany because the Danes have been working so closely with them, exchanging tourists and what not, that old hate from the war is gone.

It was however a huge surprise that Sweden was number three considering our history and how ill we speak of each other on a daily basis, but it would seem it's all talk and the Danes are warming up to their old nemesis.

Small Talk

Small Talk

Every time I make a comic about Finnish saunas I'm told it's a running joke in Finland that Finns only make small talk in saunas.

Germans are crazy about the beach. If you leave them there, there is no guarantee they'll be the same person when you find them again.

Too hot for this world

Too hot for this world

Heat makes the Nordics a little weird in the head, unless their country HAS LAVA COMING OUT OF EVERY HOLE MOTHERFLIPPING ICELAND!!!

The Faroe Islands are possibly the coldest of the countries all year round, so he really doesn't handle heat well.
