Finland jokes

TheLostOnesTheLostOnes Member Posts: 3,030
@mongo911, as per @capibara's thread, some non-toxic Finland jokes.

What's the difference between an introvert Finn and an extrovert one?

The introvert looks at his shoes while he talks to you. The extrovert looks at your shoes.

    I remember being in a restaurant in Helsinki once. I looked at all the other tables with the Finnish families eating their meals and not talking to each other. It was interesting.

    Lol! I've read many books by Arto Paasilinna.
    I love them and consider him one of my fave writers. Nice humor etc... Not that one JJ of the centenary elder... Sort of bad copy of Rovasti Huuskosen .... :)

    Anyone see the 60 Minutes piece on the Finnish Tango? They just re-aired it since Morley Safer just died. It's hilarious.

    I just wanted to let everyone know I'm Finnish...I have 2 i's in a row in my last name...yes it's the weirdest thing ever...and most of my dad's family lives in the UP in Michigan which is like a Finnish haven.

    That said I wanted everyone here to know I'm absolutely NOT offended and please make any and all Finnish jokes possible...the more painful the better!!

    Well @SlickRick you're certainly not the introvert type, that seems to have been lost during the migration to the States :)

    Here's another one:

    What's the difference between a Finnish wedding and a Finnish funeral?

    There's one person's less who's drunk at the funeral.

    It's really interesting that the UP is a Finnish haven - across the lake is Door County, WI, which is loaded Swedes & Norwegians. Of course Swedes and Fins don't get along (or so my Swedish relatives tell me).

    @masmith93

    So you're being harbored by Swedes in the summer? You better keep your docks locked next time I'm up that way...me and my Finnish brethren will hunt you down :)

    No, my Swedes are in Sweden. Another aunt married a Swede and moved there. The rest of us are Irish.

    @masmith93

    You're just going to say whatever is necessary to not be hunted down like the fugitive you are...nothing you can say will change the fact I'm all over you, your Swedish Swedes, and your non blood-related Swedish relatives :)

    P.S. I like the Irish...except the Fighting Ones at Notre Dame

    @TheLostOnes I'm not Swedish. But my cousins are, you mess with them, you mess with me. And they eat more moose and venison than beef. ;)

    @masmith93 Well, I'm supposed to both love and hate the Swedes.

    I'm Danish (but actually with a great-great-grandfather migrating from Sweden). It's a fierce rivalry but also one that's based on brotherly love. And we can always get together to make fun of the Norwegians (not the Finns, they might stab us in the face).

    When I track down and capture @masmith93 she will be tasered, questioned, tortured, and possibly drawn and quartered...but I promise I won't stab her in the face!

    Cherry icee, really? You want some Blue Moon Ice cream too?

    Oh sorry, back on topic.

    You know you've been in Finland too long when:

    Silence is fun
    Hugging is reserved for foreplay
    You understand why the Finnish language has no future tense.

    By the way, @SlickRick, I've lived a year in Springfield, Illinois, so that's fairly close to where you're from, right? And @masmith93, you're Ohio, right?

    @TheLostOnes

    I actually grew up in the Chicago suburbs...Hoffman Estates/Schaumburg for a bit and then St. Charles...went to college at the University of Illinois which is in Urbana/Champaign which is to the east of Springfield but closer.

    I've been to Springfield a couple times a long time ago...usually the furthest south we would go is Peoria which is where the state cross country and track meets were held
