Finnish from Afar: Joke - How the Finns Came to Finland

Finnish from Afar: Joke - How the Finns Came to Finland | Finland | Scoop.it

Lovely as Finland can be at times, I have always wondered why the Finns chose to settle in that inhospitable northern corner of Europe – back in the days before central heating, double-glazing, cars, snowmobiles, GORE-TEX®, winter holidays in Thailand and other such things...

6 Reasons Why The Dudesons Could Only Be A Product Of Finland

6 Reasons Why The Dudesons Could Only Be A Product Of Finland | Finland | Scoop.it
What kind of place can produce idiots so insane that they stand above the masses? That place is Finland. Sparsely populated, more than 75 percent forest and located on the Arctic Circle, the country is the perfect womb to birth fearless dudes who compete with our American goofballs. Learn more about this magical land, and why the Dudesons could've only come from there, after the jump.

Can I Finnish? - Comedy Tourism - SplitSider

Can I Finnish? - Comedy Tourism - SplitSider | Finland | Scoop.it

As far as I was concerned, the best comedy to come out of Finland was its name. Did you see what I titled this article? And you still chose to keep reading? You are too kind. But I challenge anyone to find a country with a riper name for the punning. I’ll be waiting here until your search is Finnish-ed. I rest my case. Finland seems like a perfect candidate for go-to European punch line. Despite a respectable landmass, it has a population of only a little over 5 million and its northern border is the freaking Arctic Circle. There are parts of Finland where the sun never quite sets in the summer. Few people outside of the country speak the language, and it’s not the prime tourist destination of the European Union. Yet naysayers be silenced, Finland has a very distinct sense of humor and a whole lot of comedy to back it up.

Top 10 Evil Sports - TIME - 10. Wife-Carrying Races

Top 10 Evil Sports - TIME  - 10. Wife-Carrying Races | Finland | Scoop.it
The Wife-Carrying World Championships are held every year in a small town in Finland. This macabre competition works pretty much as it sounds — a man slings his wife across his back and runs through dirt, sand, and brackish pools of water as fast as possible. It'd be almost funny if one didn't bear in mind the origin of the sport: the age-old practice of men stealing into neighboring villages or homes, and stealing away unwilling women for their own households. The race may be done in a good spirit, but it's channeling generations of oafish hubris and sexual slavery. That's not quite something worth cheering for.
