The writing at the bottom says something about "axing too well" in Icelandic. I doubt Danish newspapers and magazines don't translate their punchlines.

'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?

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