I Need Mountains by humon I Need Mountains by humon
Just a little quickie, because the other day I was reminded of a funny thing that happened to me a few months ago.

A pair of Americans came into the hospital, and when I found out they were Americans I had to ask them what they were doing in Denmark, seeing as we don’t have a whole lot to come after. They then explained that they had heard that Scandinavia had great skiing conditions, and that the flight to Denmark had been the cheapest, so that was what they had come for: Skiing. Great was their disappointment then, when they flew over Denmark and noticed that there was no snow, and not a single mountain in sight.
Yes, of all the Scandinavian countries they choose the one country that has no mountains. At all. :)

Anyway, this is my stereotype version of America (It should be noted that all countries in these little comics will be made from a Scandinavian point of view). He is a tall guy because everything in America has to be BIG. He is well trained and toned and has dyed his hair blond because to us Americans seem obsessed with their looks, yet he is not a health-freak (Either that or they’re ridiculously fat). And he is rather clueless about the other countries. :XD:

That pretty much describes the USA, we are big and kinda dumb.

Well, Denmark has dikes.
That is just as good as a mountain. They may be not very high, but they are very long and orderly.

most public schooled americans are….. they don't even know what the netherlands is, i was talking about the the nether lands and they thought i meant "the nether" from minecraft . needless to say after about 30 min of yelling at them he still doesn't know what the netherlands are

Yeah... Did you talk about Holland? Maybe he would have gotten it then, but I make no promises. Also, yes I know Holland isn't the actual country, just a region, I think they call it, but I've actually corrected a few people on that fact before, so, yeah...

P.S. I am so sorry about the stupidity and ignorance of my fellow Americans.

Ooooh, I'm American, with one eighth Danish blood on my mother's side.  My grandma's half Danish and been there... I'd kind of love to see Tivoli Gardens someday, myself!  I have some kroner and I know one word... pengepostkasse.  I also like Jungledyret Hugo!  The first one... the second one kinda sucked.  Ooooh, you guys also have an awesome rendition of the theme song to the old 1980s cartoon Chip'n Dale Rescue Rangers.  Hehe.

Its ridiculous how some Americans don't bother to know this stuff

Anyone with a sense of European geography would have either gone to Norway or Switzerland :D

Americans can be rather clueless about other countries. I, myself, am not one such American.

lmao I was reading the description with my friend over in USA, that line about dying the hair blonde made my friend turn to me and her excuse was that she HAD to ask.

btw, the answer was no, i don't dye it

I think it depends on what state you live in. Those of us here in Alaska are fairly different from the rest of the country.

We have one of the highest obesity rates in the world! America, land of the free and the home of the fat.

As an American: HEy that's so stereotypical and not at all—*looks around at fellow classmates* Oh. Never mind. Good on you! Love these comics!

You wouldn't believe. How many friggin' Americans. Come to Canada. In July. With winter jackets.
I'm serious. Here I am, walkin' down the street in a tank top and this car full of oblivious American tourists stop next to me and ask me.
'Hey miss, why isn't it snowing? Isn't this Canada?"
I literally went ಠAಠ.

Why would they travel out of America for great skiing? We have the fucking Rocky Mountains for fucks sake.

I'm an american and this is just hilarious! (Except I have Swedish in me, which makes your comics more funnier!)

It is true everything HAS to be supersized. :XD:

It's really scary how true some stereo types are. You would think people would check that what they want is at a place before going there.
