Hey, do you want have some fun? Check it out at this site Scandinavian and the World. It’s amazing. It’s a comics blog about the spirits of countries, their relationships and activities, even if sometimes they publish something about americans, they’re focused on Scandinavians style.
Teresa at Making Light explains it well.
Basically, it’s about national stereotypes as seen from Denmark, with lots of explanatory comments and a fair amount of yaoi action. Iceland is sparkly and conceited. Finland is a semi-mute knife-wielding depressive in a Jayne hat. Germany lives in a funk of perpetual guilt. Denmark is laid back, constantly horny, a clueless racist, and phobic about nature, and has a beer bottle glued to one hand. Netherlands is much like Denmark — tolerant, easygoing, polymorphously perverse, and crazy about bicycles — but has a joint rather than a beer bottle. The Baltic States are like the Bronte Sisters on a really bad day. The United States is clueless, bullying, and wears Canada as a hat. And so forth.

Scandinavians and the World
They mix everything to create these comics, a bit of these ingredients are: stereotype jokes, real facts and personal experiences, combined with community helps (yeah, you can send them your own cartoon too, but, before do it, just contact them.). I got some of their comics to post here, actually, I hope they don’t sue me 😛
So here goes some examples of their style.
Comics Scandinavia and the World
Driving in France with an Englishman was quite interesting. At first I thought I my view of French driving had been colored by my English chauffeur, but later I talked to a French girl who said, “As soon as you learn how to drive in France, you realize that everyone are out to get you”
Me: “But only in Paris, right? They must be more polite out in the countryside”
Her: “No” XD
2. It’s all about the children
3. Land of the Free-est
Guest comic strip by Awut:
Based off the “Which country has the most freedom” articles in the news recently. (us Americans were very upset that we weren’t ranked #1 :’D )
4. Waiting Game
Denmark was freed by the west at the end of WW2, but they forgot the small island Bornholm, which Russia then kicked the Nazis off. The Danes were very grateful at first, until they realized the Russians took their sweet time leaving, and people started worrying that they had taken Bornholm. But finally after a long while they left and everybody made a sigh of relief.
But still to this day you can still see Communist monuments on the island that stands out from the rest of the art on Bornholm.
5. Golden Dawn
Paris was very beautiful, but the smell of urine just saturated the place. When I talked about it on the internet a few people responded with, “Even the airport smells like pee :C”
I have no idea what the Frenchmen are up to at night, but it must be fun. XD
Technically the flag on Brother France should be mirrored because we see him from the back, but no doubt people wouldn’t notice and keep asking me why it was the wrong way.
