Happy flu season everybody!

Sickness has also taken hold of this house, so sorry about the late and simple comic. I'll try to do better next week. :)

The monster lurks in the dark

The monster lurks in the dark

Sweden just had an election, and as it turns out, their "racist party" Sverigedemokraterna gains more and more supporters with each election.

Party time

Party time

In Sweden the number 6 is spelled "sex" and I've spent a few conventions with Norwegians giggling about it while disappointed Swedes looked on.

Edit: Damn, I was sure I had checked all the ways the Nordics spell 6 but apparently I missed Iceland. Oh well, maybe he was just optimistic and hoped it was about actual sex.

Kiss it better

Kiss it better

Thanks to Sankt_Aslaug who sent me this quote:

"Dudo of St. Quentin records an encounter between a party of Danes and King Charles of the Frankish kingdom. In the presence of the king, the Danes were ordered to show their submission by kissing the foot of the king. The leader of the Danes refused. One of his followers complied. But, rather than kneeling to kiss the foot of King Charles, the Dane stood, grabbed the king's foot, and lifted it up to the level of the Dane's own head, dragging the king out of his seat and onto the floor. With the king held upside-down, the Dane kissed the foot."

If you look up the Estonian flag you'll find a few Nordic designs among the official flag. They are a product of Estonia feeling Nordic, and were suggested as their new flag but it has never been used for anything.

Also, sorry for the very late comic. It's been some eventful days, and to make a long story short I forgot it was Wednesday...

Kuwait is getting real tired of your shit guys.

The Kuwait National Assembly Building was designed by Danish architect Jørn Utzon, the same guy who designed the Sydney Opera House. To illustrate his idea to the Kuwaiti people, he used a row of empty beer bottles.

When the Kuwaiti people asked the Swedish architect Sune Lindström for a new tower, his original idea was to make it mushroom shaped, but he was asked to change the design, so Sune's Danish wife Malene Bjørn made a new design which is now Kuwait's most famous building.

The Towers were build before the National Assembly. I just thought it was funnier this way.

This was supposed to be about how it's legal to masturbate in public in Sweden as long as you're not masturbating TO anyone, but then the comic took me weird places.

In Scandinavia we're used to food just coming with a salad at restaurants.

When my family visited me in England we had dinner together, and they moved their food around a bit, even lifting it, before their finally asked "Where's the salad?"

I've often heard Swedes say this, and the other Nordics have very different reactions to it.
Not sure how most Norwegians feel about it, but the few I've heard comment on it seemed to be okay with it.
