Here in the winter, over in the Western part of Catalunya where all the famous crags are, we sometimes get long periods of heavy fog. The crags often stick out into the sun, and you can climb, but the villages can go for weeks without seeing the sun, with a temperature right around zero, shrouded in a heavy wet fog. Driving through, on the way to climb, you never see anyone in the streets. My theory is that they're all hungover, getting drunk, or having sex.

:-) Ah, no. It's the Norwegian's fish.



Not English

You'd be surprised how often I'm asked that question. It's usually by people from English speaking countries who can't speak any other language themselves. :-D

And I google translated all of it from English, even the Danish, just for the hell of it. :-P

World in Trouble

Things are tensing up between North and South Korea. USA have joined in. Nukes are involved.

...And in Denmark the news are mostly about the snow. Because you know, it’s weird when it snows in a Nordic country.

Be my John Frum

On the island of Tanna they have cult all about worshipping America (Or at least the American army) and their "Jesus" is a soilder named John Frum. Sometimes he's black, sometimes he's white.

John Frum Day is on the 15th of February, the day after Valentine's Day.

SatW Couples

I asked you what your favourite couples from Scandinavia and the World were, and here they are. I said I was only going to draw the couple that most people wanted to see, but I suddenly felt like drawing more, so I decided to draw a bunch of sketches instead.

Wales x New Zealand
Do not judge them! Their love is more true and deep-felt than any love you will ever experience!
Heh, can’t you just see the romantic sundown behind them? :D

Denmark x Norway
This was by far the most popular couple. Once again Norway is trying to cure Denmark’s fear of nature in a safe environment, and finally finally it seems like they’ve come to a breakthrough. Then Denmark touched the butterfly, it flew off, which scared the crap out of Denmark who spilled beer over the both of them and accidentally kicked Norway in the face.

Canada x America
I’ve come to like this couple more than I originally did, because I realized that they’re completely f*#king some anime/yaoi rules up. Canada would be the uke because he is such a cute little bishie, but screws it up by being the hairiest of all the guys. America would be the seme, but he is insecure like hell and still a virgin. Oh what fun. :D

America x Mexico
They love each other, because they can only see each other’s good sides. Mexico see a rich and handsome man with the power to help her out of poverty. America see a beautiful and exotic woman with strong religious morals (Which is one of the reasons why he is still a virgin. She is not putting out before the wedding!). America hates her brother though. Damn guy keeps sneaking into his yard and sometimes invites the whole family over without asking, and then he complains about America not treating his sister well, not paying her enough attention and all that stuff. God he hates that guy!

Sweden x Sister Finland
Oh dear Sister Finland. Could you possibly have chosen a worse guy to fall in love with? :D

Sister Sweden x Finland
That’s pretty much all there is to their "relationship". Big boobied sex. Enjoy. :D

You say it best

Warning! Sappy crap ahead!

Heh, I saw this http://decors.deviantart.com/art/SATW-Finland-Fan-181044863 Then I looked up the song and came across this version sung by Alison Krauss http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYzglxJ2veM and well..

You should be ashamed of yourself, Miss Sweden! You are a disgrace to all sluts everywhere! :-)

I added the handcuffs so as not to make it too sappy. Besides,Finland is lying on his back, so he must be snoring like a motherf*#ker. :D

Product Pairing

Written Norwegian and Danish are so similar that on the back of products that has a description in several languages, Norwegian and Danish are usually mixed together, and the few words that a written differently are separated with a “/”. So “I love you” would look like this on the back of a product:

SE (Swedish): Jag älskar dig.
FI (Finnish): Minä rakastan sinua.
DK/NO: Jeg elsker dig/deg.

I’ve never thought about it before, but it was pointed out to me a few weeks ago that DK/NO looks like someone was writing a paring, like Harry/Draco. I haven’t been able to unsee it since. :-D

Sorry no valentine greeting or John Frum coitus.
But do me a favor.
Any flavor, for that matter.

Ungodly Surprise

You can all blame the Faroe Islander Boyishy for this one. All I can
say is, you have to watch your mouth when you talk with me. :-D

Originally Sweden and Åland were involved too, but I decided to break the idea into two comics.

Anyway, the Faroe Islands is the most religious part of the Nordics and the one with fewest gay rights
(Gay sex is allowed, but not gay marriages and adoptions, and registered partnerships are not recognized)

Not all straight Faroe Islanders are of course religious and/or against
homosexuality, and it’s nowhere near as bad as some of the middle eastern countries,
so don’t get the wrong picture. Unfortunately some politicians
with very religious views are in charge (One wouldn’t go to a
dinner with Iceland’s lesbian prime minister who had brought her wife with her).

But no one is that homophobic without being in the closet... ;)

Smalltalk

Finland already thinks it’s bad enough to have Sweden’s child hanging around all the time. Now he has to put up with the little brat speaking Swedish too! :-D

The reason why FennoSwede turned into this good looking happy brat is because his mother spoils him rotten. Which is also why Finland doesn’t just stab him: Mommy would not be happy. :-D

As mentioned before, Scania http://humon.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2r8ybw and FennoSwede http://humon.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2qn9v9 have almost identical flags. The only thing that differs between them is the proportions of it, which I can’s show on the characters. But you will be able to tell them apart by FennoSwede’s sunglasses and rolled up sleeves. He’ll not stay this small forever after all.

And Åland is there to remind you that he speaks Swedish too, so this was inevitable. :-D

FREE ÅLAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lolli, aren't some good Finns embarassed to have misled and hoodwinked
the League of Nations in 1921? But not embarassed enough to stop collecting
taxes from the lowest unemployed region of all of Europe.

And what's up with the Swedes moving to Åland so they can home-school their kids?
I am especially befuddled by the fact that foreigners are so severely restricted
from owning property in Åland. The home-schoolers must be renters, inte sann?

Frozen Scandinavia

Left to right: Svalbart as Elsa, Norway as Anna, Saami as Kristoff, Denmark as Hans, and Sweden as the Duke of Weselton.

I wasn't going to do anything with Frozen until I was informed that all three of the Scandinavian countries are represented in the movie.

Arendelle is Magic Norway (very obvious), The Southern Isles are Magic Denmark (hint being that Denmark is mostly made up of islands and the most southern of the Scandinavian countries), and Weselton is Magic Sweden (hint being that Weselton is Arendelle's closest trading partner, which is historically Sweden to Norway).

Saami is, well, the Saami character, though he's not impressed with his clothes which doesn't look like any real Saami clothes.

And it all make a fair amount of sense considering how Denmark and Sweden have been fighting over Norway for centuries.

Who's your daddy?

All the children in SatW are completely f*#ked. :-D

Scania is the most southern part of Sweden which used to be part of Denmark. A lot of people from Scania work in Denmark and the other way around because they’re connected by a bridge, and every year a group of people from the rest of Sweden comes down to the border of Scania and a group from Scania does the same, and together they start digging along the border. The plan is to separate Scania from the rest of Sweden. :D

And yes, Sister Sweden is making a reference to this http://humon.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2qv9uv because I'm a horrible person. :-D
