Faroe Island's expression in the last panel just screams "meme".

I only support whaling if it involves "traditional" practices, and by "traditional", I mean you have to use ACTUAL traditional methods like non-motorized canoes, throwing harpoons by hand, etc etc. No whale detectors, heck, no heating or AC on your ship, you have to hunt like your ancestors hunted.

Or just eat beef, mutton, pork, and chicken like everyone else. And horse, camel, emu, venison, octopus, clams, lobster, crabs, cockroaches, grubs, grasshoppers, rabbit, squirrel, capybara, guinea pig, llama, alligator, eel...

Legit question: Are the Faroe Islands worse at whale... killing... endangering... slaughtering (?)... than Japan? Because I know they're pretty bad at it too.

You're not too far off, actually. However, said smoke in fact refers to the steam from hot springs in Reykjavik's surrounding region. But back when Iceland was settled, separate words for smoke and steam didn't really exist in the Old Norse language.

As I understand it. Iceland and the Faeroe Island still have whale hunting and the Faeroe Island continues to have their annual dolphin hunt. This has attracted the anger of the group called the Sea Shepherd who have actively been trying to prevent future dolphin hunts. It is crazy! Look them up. I believe the Sea Shepherd flag ship is registered and protected by Denmark. The people of the Faeroe Island are highly suspicious of anyone who is Vegetarian since the crews of the Sea Shepherd are required to be vegetarians.
Denmark also had sovereignty over Iceland and the Faeroe Island until the 1930's

Seems relevant to reintroduce this older strip, which might clear out a thing or two about Faroese whaling:
