A trip into American culture by humon A trip into American culture by humon
This idea was suggested by Jess9000 and won with 766 votes on the "Scandinavia and The World" site [link]
Every month I'll pick some of the suggestions that supporters have made on this site [link] and members can then vote for them. The winner will be made into a comic. :)

They wanted to see the Scandinavian boys visiting America for once and get a taste of American culture, Peanut Butter being of special interest. We do have Peanut Butter up here in the North now like most American stuff, but for the sake of the comic lets say this was the first time they encountered it. :D

I have no idea how many people will get the last part, but it's a joke on the old American show "Mister Ed" from the 60's about a horse that could talk. When asked how they got the horse to move it's lips when "talking" the people behind the show claimed it was done by putting peanut butter on it's gums (they later told they had trained it to do so, but didn't want to disappoint the children who watched the show).

I honestly have no idea why I know about that show in the first place. :XD:

This strip always makes me laugh and confuses me at the same time... it was only last year that I learned peanut butter was mainly an American thing, and ever since then seeing foreigners talk about it always tickles me pink! Growing up in America, I always thought of that stuff as being as ubiquitous as bread! Which it is... here, anyway. But people from other countries make it sound like something special...

BTW try putting that stuff on bananas. It'll take your banana experience to a whole new level. XD

Hmmm i told someone that i love your steriotypics(sorry i cant spell)
On america and whutnot
They said 'but you always say steriotypic is just a nice way of being racist'
I said that was just a joke and that i didnt understand why they were conserned seeing that they played around with racial remarks all the time but as a joke never really meaning it, and they always acted as steriotypical black women too
They rolled their head around in a sassy stypical black women way
Then we laughed
Not much sense to this story aye?
