So basically Niels is calling them "gay couple brought together by a gun" :XD:

I apologize for making a joke no one will get.
Agent 300 saying that only Danes speak Danish is actually a secret agent joke.
Danish is so hard to pronounce that during World War ll and the cold war Danes used their language to spot foreign spies. Because it didn't matter how many years a secret agent had studied Danish, he would never be able to pronounce the words perfectly. So the dreaded line "rød grød med fløde" ("red porridge with cream") that Danes love to make tourists say for laughs, actually have roots in the war where it was the ultimate test.

So Agent 300 and Niels could have a conversation where Niels spoke Danish and 300 answered in English. Because 300 sure as hell isn't going to break his tongue on that silliness. :XD:

pfft sorry for the last comment.
I want to say that the way 300 is holding 250's hand is just adorable, and I felt bad for laughing at Niel's weird sense of humor. XD
Amazing work as always.

:rose:You know, he's being an awfully good sport about having his arm broken and his eye shot out. I guess Ralphie's mother was right.:rose:

actually it translates pretty effectively, in a sideways sort of way, because there's a slang term in American English "Shotgun wedding" which refers to when a young man gets a (usually rural) local's daughter pregnant and he forces the young man at gunpoint to marry her so the baby isn't born outside of wedlock.

I really love Rote Grütze and whenever we were near the Danish border my father used to say "rød grød med fløde" :D Now I finally know where this originates :D

I just had to comment on this one. I've been slowly making my way through all of your comics.
I have a friend who is Danish and she has tried repeatedly to teach me how to count to ten in Danish. And though I think I pronounce it correctly every time, she always says I am wrong. We've given up ^^;

in World War 2 the Dutch asked ppl to check if they are Dutch or spies, to say Scheveningen since most Germans can't say it right =P

I like that Niels doesn't seem to be too bothered by the fact that his eye couldn't be saved. He lets it sit with him for a moment, before he starts talking to 250, and 300 again.

I will. Never. Call them. A. Gay. Couple. Again.

That will now be my go-to word for badass gay pairings, though I will only ever write it. How the hell do you say it?! XD

Also, liking the history info you've got down there. We brits tried to use a similiar tactic to spot germans by getting them to say "bread and cheese", but I don't think it really worked.

Seriously, that's true. Danish is SO hard to pronounce. My step-family (who has been my family since I was four or five) is Danish, and even now when I'm turning eighteen, I can't pronounce anything Danish. Golly, do they have fun trying to get me to speak like a Dane. They say I sound like such a bogan-.-'

I'm from Stavanger (Norway), where we speak with a uvular 'R'. But whenever I'm visiting family in Denmark, I have to speak the more ... uh ... "cultured" Eastern dialect which they speak in Oslo (the capital) and farther East. If I don't, a lot of them don't understand what I'm saying.

.....A bit off topic there. Oopsie^^

Question. When you are doing these lil comic strips, are you using digital or traditional art?
hahahahaha! thats great! you know, it's kinda sad that i learn more about history from these and the SatW comics than i do from history class. Thanks for making it interesting!

That's so true. Understanding the other scandinavians is easy (at least most of the time), but speaking, or even typing it... impossible.

Reminds me of how Dashiell Hammett used the word "gunsel" for a minor character, which was slang for male homosexual prostitute, but as he anticipated, the editors thought the word meant "gunman". Ironically, "gunsel" became a slang word for gunman because of that, because lots of readers didn't know the original meaning.
LilianG Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011  Student
Finnish people used finnish to spot Russian spies! They made the suspects say "Yksi" (one in finnish) and if the person was Russian, they pronounced it more like "Juksi" and so were caught..

Niel's eye :( Is he covering it up with a joke or is he just that casual about losing his eye? He's half blind now- but wouldn't it be funny if this fixed his bad aiming? :rofl:
