The Faroese are very proud of their standard of living, which is said to be one of the best in the world. Having never been there, I have no way of objectively judging that claim, but I've uncovered a nugget that suggests things may, indeed be pretty good in the Faroes.

Faroese television broadcasts The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Their website describes the program as "Emmy virðislønt amerikonsk speisending," which I'm sure is something pretty good.

The way I see it, any country that has The Daily Show must be doing ok. Now how long until Colbert invades their shores?

This week's Faroe photo comes from this guy's flickr photostream. He's been to some pretty amazing places so, naturally, I hate him.

Yes, we have Jon Stewart. Roughly translated, that text there means: "Emmy Awarded american satire-show" - Something like that. "Sending" means show or programmme.

Some shows from USA, which have been aired here are: The Cosby Show, Friends, Dynasty, A-Team, Knight Rider, Desp. Housewives, Seinfeld, NYPD Blues, Alf... heck.. we've even seen the Super Bowl sometimes.. although i have no earthly idea what those guys are doing on the field.
