Air-tight defence by humon Air-tight defence by humon
For the newest SaTW comic, go to the site satwcomic.com/

To be fair, the Danish police wasn't sure who had received training for using a specific gun, but the way they worded it when explaining it made it sound like they didn't know which police officers could use guns at all.

Also, say hello to North (or Grandpa North). He's a bid old fashioned and has trouble controlling his violent tendencies sometimes.
And of course I know Viking helmets didn't have horns, but here in Scandinavia we use horn-less helmets for serious things and helmets with horns for cartoony things.

In all seriousness though, the police better start packing pieces.

To be honest I feel some vikings must have had horned helmets just to show off because people have been using embellishing details to show off status for all of history.

*checking the pic's comment and the user comments*

Sorry to nit-pick, but I think this cartoon would have needed one or two more sentences which explain its background/what exactly the joke is based on to non-Scandinavians.

The joke is, that the danish police mostly don't know how to use guns.

Yes, thanks to the artist's comment (and the reader's comments and your's) I understood the joke, but only by looking at the comic per se I didn't quite get it. IMHO "getting" humon's comic is usually easier, her artist's comments are support pillars but not absolutely essential for the joke. Sorry if this sounds snotty in any way. :hmm:

Good to know about the difference in depiction. I do the same thing when drawing cartoons - people are just so used to it, it's easier to get a point across. Still, ever since I found out the truth I can't help but laugh at the horned helmets :lol:

In America, we think simply to OWN a firearm makes you a Heaven-born marksman. I believe that if you rounded up a bunch of gun owners, they'd prove to be incredibly mediocre.

No we don't. If you did that they would tell you that if you're going to have a gun you need training.
