The mighty pen

The tradition of ridiculing and exposing the system, the politicians, spokespersons, royalty, even disciples and historical figures, go back a long way. Vacation house stable number one: the annual Svikmollen and Blaksprutten (the octopus). Competing illustrated satirical publications, with highlights of the year gone by. Svikmollen has been around since 1915, and Blaksprutten goes as far back as 1889.

On this years cover: The Prince Of Denmark walking his infamous aggressive dachshund by a line of terrified soldiers (rightly so, the small dog has a taste for human bone). In other words A Royal Pain.

Our recently retired mayor takes one in the name of freedom of speech. Headline reads: "liar"
