We are in a very hateing relationship


Based on several stories I’ve heard from Swedes. Danes love to make fun of Swedes and Swedes love to make fun of Danes, but Icelandic people also love to make fun of Danes. Several Swedes have described hanging out with Icelandic people as “First it was fun to make fun of Danes together but eventually it started to annoy me and I thought NO! STOP! We hate Danes more than you! It’s not funny anymore!”

Sounds very much like a relationship between close siblings - we're absolutely brutal to each other, but if anyone else tries to make fun of one of us (even a cousin) we close ranks fast

Similar with China and Korea vs Japan vs Taiwan.
No seriously. There's a "which country dislikes china the most" ranking and the Korean reaction was "WTF we lost to those Japs? No way we hate China more!". And the Taiwanese news topic was "How come we are not the no 1"

We just returned from a two week vacation in Denmark. It was pretty amazing how often the Danes thought we were Danish and would start talking to us right off in Danish. Then they'd get real quiet as we'd all look at them very confused and say "English or German?"

As a Icelander with danish blood I have to admitt this is true. There's been alott of propaganda against the danish, mostly to make excuses for the dickish way we got independence.

I've known Danes, I've known Norwegians, and I've known Fins. Never had a chance to meet an Icelandic person, and I've only tangentially known any Swedes. (Friend of a friend sort of thing I met once at a party.)

To me as a native English speaking American they all sounded pretty incomprehensible (particularly the Fins.) However Danish irritates me because I can almost-but-not-quite understand it.

That said, all of the people from your dysfunctional family have been really nice to me so STOP BICKERING! Jeeze.

It's called "Nordic brotherhood", each of us makes fun of others and we tolerate it because that's how we have shown that we care for them for ages. Danes and Swedes love to clash with each other, Norse joining Swedes and Finns... Well let's just say Swedes are our favorite brothers, we even have a nice saying about competition: "It doesn't matter do we win, as long as Swedes loose".
And that goes even further at least in Finland where towns have their own favorite enemies, like Turku and Tampere are two most notorious ones, Tampere wants to sink Turku by jumping on the bridges and Turku wants to make lake Näsi beautiful again by doing a little bit of dredging, just enough to remove Tampere (except Särkänniemi can stay).

As Finnish, nothing gets more laughed about than Swedes
