Finland - MYTHS.
Finns are nothing but no-good drunks.
-I couldn't have said it better myself.
Finns are so stupid that they hardly remember
-True also, especially with the blond ones.
Finns live in igloos.
-Unfortunately, NO WE DON'T.
Finns are crazy militarists who only want to
-Well, that is not true. Even though mother-in-laws
aren't really that popular... But that's universal.
All Finns are chauvinists.
-No, females are not. Hehe, not really.
Finland is second in equality. Not that many chauvinists here.
If a finn doesn't go to SAUNA every day, she/he
will go crazy.
-We all already are, so no damage would be done.
A Finn's Saturday morning starts with "Oh damn.... I
shouldn't have drunk that much......shit....."
-Very true. The line is said in Finnish, though.
A Finnish man doesn't speak if he doesn't have
-If he's not drunk that's true. If he's
under the influence of alcohol, you can't make him shut up. He has always a lot of important things to tell you.
Finns have never seen what a TV looks like.
-They have seen it alright, but they just
have never figured out what that thing is called and what it's used for.
A Finn's favorite drink is milk.
-No way. It's "Koskenkorva" (a finnish brand
of liquor) or beer. Preferably both.
All Finns are farmers.
-Farming takes a lot of intelligence. I can smell a paradox.
Finns hate animals.
-No, dogs are useful on Saturday mornings
when you don't have the power to go get the magazines yourself.. We love animals.
Finns don't know what "FUN" stands for.
-Are you kidding? We are Finns! The word "Finn" was discovered when a man accidentally said "finn" when he meant to say "fun". He was intoxicated.
Finns often run around the neighborhood naked
and then finally hop into a lake.
A Finnish woman demands more than a "regular"
-Don't mention it. Makes me sad.
Finnish language sounds like a mule eating
it's own testicles.
-True, if you see a Finn in the streets
you should quickly jump to the nearest bush. Because of the language he's speaking. Or because he's scary. Or because of his bad breath. The choice is yours.
Even Finnish animals are insane.
-Correct. Take a look at my dog, for instance.
The most common cause of death in Finland is alcoholic poisoning.
-Close. It must be drowning during the Midsummer Festivals. The drowning is resulted by alcohol, so you were really close.
All finns are have beer bellies and they all eat way too much sausages.
-Not all of us. I know this guy in Oulu, Jorkki,
who's not all that fat.
