That’s right, I’ve waged a pseudo war on the Danes, because quite frankly their pissing me off.
In my February 18 video update I did a story about how the Danish people are the happiest people on earth and how the Americas are far less chipper. I did the whole story in kind of a mocking tone to personify (in a joking way) the ranking of the Americans. Then at the end of the segment I proclaimed “screw the Danes.” I didn’t actually mean it, I thought it came off as sarcastic.
But maybe I didn’t lay it on thick enough.
Since the joke, I’ve gotten 23 comments on that video, all of which are from really pissed off Danish people that don’t have a sense of humor.
Here are just some of the comments I’ve received.
This just goes to show, how easy it is to be cocky when youre 3000 miles away and yapping into a camera…
come on… why so angry ? lighten up
Wait, you call me “cocky” and say I’m “yapping into a camera” but then you say “kind regards.” Doesn’t sound genuine or happy to me.
TomFrank (or what ever the f… your name is): You don’t know what you’re talking about, not by far! Unless you’ve lived in (or atleast visited) Denmark, your words are invalid and uncalled for. Oh, by the way: May I suggest that you get a haircut and remove that propaganda-flag in the background (I think your fellow countrymen would sob if they in any way were related to you), next time you upload something potentially being watched by millions of people in the long run. We danes ARE happy. ;o)
Besides calling the American flag a “propaganda-flag” (by the way no hyphen needed) this one’s a little irate. Not too happy are we my Danish nemeses?
We are happy because we aint stupid as you
This one needs no comment.
So that’s that. They lash out at me, in a very undanish way, about how I’m being mean and hurtful. Like your typical socialist would do.
So I release another video, this time I explain it was a joke but mention how the Americans are far more independent than the Danes. Well that made one Dane so angry that he couldn’t even make sense in his comment.
So because a couple does’nt get your little joke you generalise an entire people. Or was that another joke? And yes SOME americans are more ECONOMICLY independent than some danes but a lot are completly screwed because of poverty which is a much bigger problem in the US than in Denmark. maybe not having to worry about things like being able to afford proper healthcare and education makes the danes more independent than a lot of americans who may be more economicli independent but are forced to work all day long just to earn enough money to survive. But that’s just one point of view.
So he admits that American are more economically independent. But then says some American are screwed because of poverty which is bigger in the US. Wouldn’t that prove that Americans are more economically independent. Poverty’s a bad thing, but the majority of people in poverty put themselves in poverty, proving they had the independent choice not to spend all that money or not go and get a job.
Then he says that not worrying about things like health care and education makes the Danes more independent. No. It proves just the opposite. It means you are more DEPENDENT on your government to provide things that Americans have to get on their own.
Then he says that Americans are forced to work all day long just to earn enough money to survive. That’s simply not true. Sure there are people that work three jobs and struggle to get by. But again that proves our independence and that’s also an extremely small portion of Americans. The fact is that the average American works about seven hours a day. So from 9am to 4pm. And lets do a little math. There are 24 hours in a day, take away seven and you’ve got…17 hours. Take away time to sleep (roughly 7 hours) and you’re left with 10 hours of free time. Which would factor out to be the largest chunk of your day.
So again, it would appear that Americans are far more free and independent than the socialistic Danes.
But the pseudo war is not over. If any Dane comes at me I will not hesitate to retaliate. And when I say SCREW THE DANES this time, I mean it.
