Not a Yahtzee

Not a Yahtzee

You might have to say “yahtzee” out loud to get the joke.

Pretty much how the German government reacts whenever Nazis are mentioned, if German soldiers does something violent somewhere, or if anything that could in anyway make people think of Nazis happens. They’re quite paranoid about the subject.

There once was a time

There once was a time

...But it was long ago.

A little watercolour picture I made after reading about Sweden’s and Finland’s history. Again.
Finland used to be happy. They used to be the best of friends, but then shit happened and now especially Finland denies having ever liked Sweden.

I always try to make my watercolour paintings look as messy as possible, because no other paint does the messy look as well as watercolours.
Also, watercolours make pictures look more personal and emotional. :)

And I promise that I'll upload an actual comic soon. Promise!

I don’t even know. I just wanted to draw a picture of Sweden and his sister, and then this happened...

One has to wonder how these two ended up so different. Or is Sister Sweden more intelligent than she leads on? And is Sweden more wild under the serious facade than he will ever admit? We may never know.

Finland is a fool if he thinks he can keep Sister Sweden to himself. She’s a bigger whore than Denmark, which makes her a pretty big whore.

And I really should include Iceland more often. It has recently come to my attention that people think he is a sissy because he is all pretty and sparkly, when in fact he is the most hardcore of them all. This guy jumps into volcanoes with a parachute on and rides the hot air out again for fucks sake!
And yes, he will land on them in a few seconds.

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”.

Merry Christmas

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:
