Tofu Will Make You Gay!
This just in: Soy will turn your kid into a fey girly man with a very small penis. Also: God hates vegans

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The only way to begin a new year is with optimism. No matter how bad it is, personally or globally, we need to believe that there will be a change, and that we can work towards change. I don’t know why our minds are so powerful, but I know that they are, and that our attitude affects much more than can be proved.
Jeanette Winterson's column

This is a comic strip that echoes Bani's thoughts about lutefisk. It's the strip under October 27th.

Nemi is one of my favourite Norwegian comic strips. But I think Pondus and M are even more fun.

This is an M comic strip - the writer has obviously seen Brokeback Mountain... :-)

You are my cool reading guru. :-) Although I must confess that Nemi translates quite badly into an English context somehow...I have only started to appreciate her now that I'm in Scandinavia, for some reason.

Thanks! :-) That's interesting, about Nemi. I wonder why? Though I think the cartoonist, Lise Myhre, was kind of surprised that it became so popular in Norway (and Scandinavia). She thought only certain sub cultures would like the comic strips - I remember reading that in an interview.

Har har, great strip!

Pondus is Norwegian? I always assumed Danish. You know, kinda sexist, and lots of beer. Not that I'm prejudiced or nuthin'...
