Some say learning Finnish is like drinking tar. Nonsense! In this book, Finn-Matti bends from iron wire what the most beloved Finnish idioms mean. Literally. The Finnish Nightmares books have been bestsellers worldwide. In China, Finn-Matti has even caused a new word to be coined: "jingfen", meaning "spiritually Finnish".

    Having a Finnish partner, it's always amusing running into amusing differences in language. Being Northern Irish myself we have our own intersting colloquialisms but some of the literal translations for these Finnish ones really do take the cake.

    Thanks, I think I got a few extra years to my lifespan as I read this. Because "nauru pidentää ikää", laughter makes you live longer. Thanks, I think I got a few extra years to my lifespan as I read this. Because "nauru pidentää ikää", laughter makes you live longer.

    It's funny because it's true! Ei mennyt niinkuin Strömsössä - It didn't go like in the Strömsö arts and crafts TV show (=it didn't go as planned). Sillä sipuli - That's an onion (=that's it! All done). Hauskaa olis ollu myös vastineet muissa kielissä, esim. nostaa kissa pöydälle/elephant in the room jne. It's funny because it's true!

    Hauska ja hämmentävä. Hauskan tästä teki jokaiseen sananlaskuun (mielikuva!), sanontaa jne liitetty piirroskuva. Kuvien tunnelma oli lakoninen ja kuivahumoristinen. Usein kuvat (kuitenkin) alleviivasivat (!!) minulle sitä, että olisin todella halunnut tietää mistä sanonnat ovat tulleet ja samalla sitä kuinka hervottoman hauskan absurdeja sanonnat voivat olla (vaikka niitä ei tulkitsisi kirjaimellisesti)! Siis hämmentävä ja hauska, koska pidän absurdista sisällöstä.

    Another hilarious Matti. One of my favorites - "Forward!" Said the granny in the snow. Another hilarious Matti. One of my favorites - "Forward!" Said the granny in the snow.

    Många uttryck/ordstäv som var nya för mig. Den tecknade gubben är lika söt som vanligt, men de här bilderna är ju inte roliga som i Finnish Problems-böckerna.
