Yep, I'm one of the fifty five percent - I could read it, no problem whatsoever. Amazing innit!

Smart bastard, I still thought I was downloading a knitting pattern for a Finnish Anticant Beret.

My mother said 'that's nothing'.
Apparently, she can read Doctors' presriptions, too.

Suomalaisten pipojen kudontaohjeet näyttävät kyllä ihan toisenlaisilta.

I could read it no problem, too. Is it really really true that only 55% of all people can? What's wrong with the rest of us (them)?

(Let me know if the first sentence makes you feel miserable. I might then tell you what it says.)

Merkin said...

Thatz the only one I can vaguely remember from my time in Poland when I had a Finnish 'friend'.
You naughty girl.

Anna MR said...

Merkin, I can assure you I have said nothing that could be described as naughty, no matter how broad the terms. Sorry to disappoint.

Interested to know more about your Finnish "friend".

Merkin said...

Two arms, two legs (though sometimes I thought she had 4 arms and 4 legs).
What more can i say?
Yum, Yum.
I met her 'in the restaurant'.

A lot of Finnish girls visit Poland.

Anna MR said...

Finnish girls get everywhere, Merkin.

And with that "4 arms, 4 legs" line, it's you that's being naughty. Yum yum.

Sounds like a response to bald headed Kekkonen.

boldscot said...

I may be shaven headed but I wear contact lenses.

Anna MR said...

Boldscot, contacts weren't invented in Kekkonen's time. Had they been, though, he'd probably have looked very apt and good in a pair with goat's-eye patterns.

How are yours patterned?

Zola - Kekkonen hiihtää ja Kekkonen kalastaa, mutta irtooko Kekkoselta rokänroll, hahaha

Pixie said...

I could read it too!

Only thing i know in Polish though is an extremely offensive swear term. Which even beats me, which is bizarre as I swear soo much.

Nice to meet you merkin.

George W Bush said...

Say, can any of you guys translate that article with the foreign stuff for me?

Merkin said...

Hi Pixie, nice to see you .
Do give my regards to Sky Pixie when you see him or her ir it.
My Polish is pretty bad but I can curse with the best of them.
Do have a look at the article two lots down from here to get the idea.
See ya again, I am sure.

Ha ha! This is so funny! Just amazing!

DJ Kirkby said...

I read it no problem which just goes to show how shite my spelling and typing really is!

Shame about the Workers

"The wonderful thing abouts texts
And, texts are incredible things.
Is that they hobble and bubble and wobble around
Until they are INGENTING

Are ingenting! "

Fuck me this post will make 100 soon although I guess that goon who seeks to get to be 50 will spoil it all.

Merkin said...

Nice to see a real Pixie and a DJ and a SnufflyOne here.
First of many visits, I hope?.
