    Link: Did This Old Comic Inspire Matt Groening? - This comic strip was found in a 1949 Icelandic newspaper. Was Matt Groening inspired by it for Homer? It`s uncanny.

    `Isn`t Copenhagen in Denmark, not Iceland?`

    Who are you going to trust, your high school geography teacher or the guy who thinks Antarctica is a country and that the Amazon River is in Africa?

    The writing at the bottom says something about "axing too well" in Icelandic. I doubt Danish newspapers and magazines don`t translate their punchlines.
