A MEMORY FROM ST ANDREWS
”Hey, that Finnish exchange student has put a new painting in her door.” ”Oh, so she has.” //
”It is nice that she puts her paintings where others can see them.” ”Indeed it is.” //
”Her paintings of animals a very pretty.” ”This owl is my favorite so far.” //
”Do you think she’ll have something new next week?” ”I hope so.” //
”She’s really talented.” ”She is!” ”Please stop praising me, I’m embarrassed!”
A NERD IS A NERD, EVEN ON A BIKE
Miksi minä aina päädyn piirtämään polkupyöriä, vaikka niiden piirtäminen on kamalaa?
Why do I always end up drawing bikes even though I hate drawing them?
Romeo and I biked to Hangö for midsummer. It was a 130 km journey. We were taking about nerdy stuff all the way.
Pisteet niille, jotka tunnistavat kaikki sitaatit!
Points to those who know all these quotes!
IN THE NAME OF STYX!
”I participated a larp where the theme was Greek gods. I was playing Hermes, the messenger of gods …who is also a thief, gambler and a general trouble-maker.” //
”Now you screwed up, Hermes. As a punishment, I will confiscate your sandals!” ”But Apolloo-oon! I haven’t done anything! It’s so unfaaa-aare!” ”The sandals, Hermes!” ”Oh thank you, these winged sandals are really uncomfortable!”
FIFTEEN MINUTES OF FAME
A note for my non-Finnish readers: if you feel like this comic makes no sense it’s because my mom and I are making fun of Finnish politics here.
”…and that’s what Andy Warhol said, too: everyone gets their fifteen minutes of fame.” ”It doesn’t work like that. I mean, there are 94 quarters of an hour in 24 hours and there are so many people in the world…” //
”…that there’s no way everyone is going to get their own fifteen minutes.” ”Hmm…” //
”Of course no one gets their own private fifteen minutes but there’d be several famous people for every given quarter.” ”I don’t want to share my fifteen minutes!” //
”It could be regional. Let’s divide the world into sections, and on each section there’s one famous person for every fifteen minutes.” ”We-ell…” //
”We could divide Finland into eighteen fame districts, too!” //
”But I think people should have the right to decide which area they spend their fame quarter on despite of where they live.” //
”So you mean like a freedom of choice law?” ””Hmm.” ”Hmmmm.”
