As a Welshman this upset me a lot more than the Comic. (Where you see words in brackets like these I have responded to the criticisms of my nation.)

crotalidian:
...Is this actually a real thing that is happening?

(I should hope not it'd be very tacky to stick our dragon on a background of saintly crosses, a more appropriate choice would be using the flag of St. David and sticking a bit of yellow and black into the Union Jack.)

I lived in Wales for 3 years and from that experience it is clear that the Welsh have no interest in being part of the Union Jack (or even the UK) the flag is never seen. As English people we are forced to use the 'British' flag because our beloved cross of St George has a nationalist stigma attached to it.

("I'm not Welsh but I lived there so I know everything about them, [which clearly you don't by the way] and not once have I seen a symbol that doesn't represent them in anyway proudly displayed anywhere." Very true indeed dipshit also every flag has a nationalist stigma attatched to it though not every flag is used by the English Defence League so maybe this is an issue you should take up with them not us.)

Wales is worse than Canada, they are self governed with their own budget and funds but also get tax money from England (we dont see any of theirs). and they have representatives on our parlaiment to help decide how we spend our money but English members cannot sit on the Welsh parliament (to decide how they spend our money).

(Canada is also self governed and definately has it's own budget. Our funds & budget comes from the same big pile of money gather by the government from all Welsh, English, Scotish and N.Irish people and yes our representatives meet up in Cardiff and London but they aren't seperate and our spending is watched by the London parliment, we'll never see any of our own money either because all the taxes are gathered up and distributed where they need to go, building hospitals, researching the next military advance, a politician's hooker fund etcetera etcetera; but we do pay taxes just the same. Also an English MP can't sit in Welsh parliment because their constituency isn't in Wales retard! An Englishman could sit in Welsh parliment if he was an MP for a Welsh constituency.)

I am so glad to have moved to the US. with all its problems at least we doint have to deal with this idiotic system. /rant
(I'm not the US has an image problem with the rest of the world and you aren't going to make them look better and yes democracy is an idiotic system when you think about it but then escaping a democratic country because you hate the system to wind up knowingly in another democratic system that has more problems...that isn't idiotic; because calling you an idiot would insult idiots the world over, you somewhere on the scale with George Bush and people who believe the Daily Star.)

EDIT: I'd like to point out that hearing all the worst things the English can say Wales stings but I still found the comic a little bit funny.

McMarbles:
That's gonna get some angry e-mails.

Yep all in jumbled up writing!

As an American who has visited Canada, and has several Canadian friends, I find the last joke funny, but inaccurate. Canada is actually really cool, and I have yet to meet anyone who actually dislikes Canada. When Americans tell Canadian jokes, they're almost as a rule, in good nature.

Wales, on the other hand, I have no experience with. I've never encountered a Welshman, so I can't say.

Regardless, though, really funny strip. Definitely one of the best.

ive noticed that they couldnt do this about scotland, we get too aggravated about that sort of thing

difference is scotland deserves to be in UK, we basically won crimea on our own and everyone knows the majority of the SAS are scottish

Ah, but the SAS lives and trains in Wales......

As an Englishman all I need to know about the welsh is; Funny accent, Strange language and of course sheep jokes. You don't really ever learn anything about them...

That and you have a truly astounding degree of knife crime.

Grey Carter:

Depends on whether you're in Glasgow or not. You're just as likely to be kissed by Glaswegian.
If you're in a car, you'll be given lovely gifts, like bricks.
Go Neds.

LOL! Great comic.

I am Canadian and laughed at this but, I won't take offence to this. Cause I know we rock! Yay!

I've never met anyone from Wales though.

Leftnt Sharpe:
If Wales is our Canada would that make Scotland our Mexico? Hmmmm we could use a fucking huge fence to keep them out of England. Actually I'm pretty sure that Scotland IS our Canada, its really cold, most of the land is covered in Pine Trees and there are more cows than people.

They do make really nice Steak Pies though.

England's going to be Scotland's Mexico now, what with all our free University tuition n all

Aww...
some of these comments are just mean. I understand the angle that the comic is meant to be coming from what with the fact that every part of britain does hate their neighbors but these comments are just blatant xenophobia.
I'm welsh by the way and it really disappoints me to see people being so hateful towards us as a minority.

"Our Canada." Oof, and they hit below the belt.

I am of Welsh descent and this is fucking hilarious \m/

Scobie:
Note to self: find excuse to use the phrase "limp-wristed dragon of mediocrity" in conversation.

I have to find excuse to use the term "Sheep molesting parasites" Soon. This comic was priceless XD

And here I thought we Americans were overly violent....Ya'll just put Detroit to shame with that!

I hope the Dragon thing isn't true, the Welsh dragon would just look weird on the Union Jack and I think it would just clutter it up.

WAITWHOAAHOjajfkdjfska;jfkdsa;jWHOA... Hold up a sec... This comic is BritisH? *head explodes in disbelief, not to say that the Brits aren't funny, it's just that I didn't know. I'm American you know, we're pretty ignorant. Just ask anyone who hates America. ._.*

icyneesan:
We've got sheep humper problems, local law enforcement does what it can, but its not looking so good for farmers.

I think your thinking of New Zealand, at least the first part.

Wolfram01:
Hmm don't really get the anti Welsh, nor as a Canadian, the anti-Canadian in this strip. A bit offensive really. Why don't you go back to making strips about gaming?

If you can't laugh at yourself who can you laugh at?

Lads, it's a comic about a strange woman, her pet mouse and a great many jokes about dongs, feces and farts.

Simmer down a little.

Indeed :) I'm Welsh, thought it was funny, always amazes me how serious people get, and how many people get sucked into the trolling.

Great comic :D

I have a sudden urge to visit Wales...and Canada now that I think on it...curse my paradoxical inclination to move south despite my desire to visit places to the north and east!

What do you mean about Canada? I'm Canadian And I do not approve of our great country being called: not a country, a cyst,a stigma, and a scourge.

Irridium:
Hey now, thats not true. Canada gives us Maple Syrup and LoadingReadyRun. So they do contribute to the world.

French Fries and gravy too!
The food of the gods!

This comic finally shows the message I've tried to show the world for all of my life.

Woodsey:

standokan:
I never even heard about the welsh people before this strip but that doesn't make it less funny.

You've never heard of Wales? O.o

Sure, but just as a name not like what Wales actually is, I'm dutch okay, I don't think that I'm even supposed to know those things.

Eyelicker:

WingedFortress:
I would urge England to keep identifying with the Americans at every corner. Mabye if you fight enough of their wars, and adopt enough of their bad habits, you can also have an epic economic failure and alienate yourselves from the rest of the world.

And Wales! Feel free to come by for some free fresh water, food, oil and money. We have plenty here in Canada.

Love,

Winnipeg.

Chillout butthurt Canadian bro, it's just a funny funny joke

and we're all good for fresh water, food, oil and money too! In fact last time I checked The US and UK were way richer than you crazy Canucks with your milk in bags and fetching tartan jackets.

Haha! Your dollars always down, ours keeps going up. Did you hear we made 200,00+ jobs in the last two years? I also like that all your unemployed keep running up here to make money! Actually, that last part was wrong. I don't like that a bunch of deadbeat americans keep running into our cities. Never mind all the water we *give* you..yeesh.

But thats okay, because I wasn't being very serious in my first post anyway. I actually have yet to meet an Englander I don't like, and despite all the bad press I keep hearing about the States, most of them are fantastic people face to face. Mabye not you, but most of them!

So chill out dude! Don't let the internet get ya so riled up!

Awww, thats hurt my feelings now, why do you think I wouldn't be fantastic face to face :(

Haha that's funny.

I'm late to this comic, but by God I laughed at this strip, and I'm Welsh! I've never heard the comparison of Wales as England's Canada, bloody epic!

Fi'n hoffi hwn!

As a Canadian, I find this strip offensive in the extreme. The US has more sheep-humpers per capita than we Canadians, and we are more like Norway or Denmark than Wales.

Now sit in the corner and think about what you've done.

Scarim Coral:
Although I'm living in Wales I found this stripe to be very funny!

Dublin Solo:
And although I'm living in Canada, I found it funny as well.

and I'm the best of both worlds.. can't wait till they make fun of the Irish then they will have proven they hate everything about me. :)

You cant call an entire country parasites and then expect them not to take offense, even if it was for irony. that's a prime example of the old childish thing of saying to someone "No offense.. but" then proceeding to completely and utterly offend the person

This was the first, and last critical miss ill ever read.

Theres laughing at yourself when its all in good fun, and then theres that.

It's true,
N.Ireland hates England
Scotland hates England
Wales hates England
The Channel Islands hate England
England hates England

And yet.... the country still houses our government...

HEY! As a Scot, I...
No I can't do it, you're probably right. But in our defence, about 96% of the knife crime is in the city of Glasgow.

Seriously, don't go to Glasgow without a Police escort or a lightsaber!

Haha I've been to Wales and there are a lot of crazy people who live in huts there and don't know anything about the modern world. There are also a bunch of crazy soccer fans (SHUT UP ITS SOCCER SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP >:( )
