Hello Good Readers,
We might have also entitled today’s post: Vor bekendte i Greenland.
We’re so pleased to report that our collective efforts to reach the verdant shores of fair Greenland have proven successful. Through the power our our posts, our Facebook wall messages, our Tweets and even our little postcards, we were able to raise the chickenmonkeydog flag to catch the attention of the good people of that noble land.
To celebrate our new friendship with Greenland, we’ve decided the post the national anthem of Greenland on our website.

Our Country Who’s Become So Old
Our country, who’s become so old your head all covered with white hair.
Always held us, your children, in your bosom providing the riches of your coasts.
As middle children in the family we blossomed here Greenland,
we want to call ourselves before your proud and honourable head.
With a burning desire to develop what you have to give, renewing,
Removing your obstacles our desire to move is forward, forward.
The way of matured societies is our zealous goal to attain;
the effect of speech and letters we long to behold.
Humbleness is not the course Greenland wake up and be proud!
A dignified life is our goal; courageously take a stand.
