To put things into right context, Finland was part of Sweden until 1809. After that the grandgrandgrandfather of Borat invaded Finland to have sexy time with our reindeer domestication, thus we became part of the Kazakh regime. The grandgrandgrandson of Borat's ancestor and one pretty reindeer remained anonymous is now our Foreign Minister, IIRC.

I did wonder why it wasn't ticking but that was because it contained a packet of Salmiakkimakeissekoitus (that would be a great word to have in Scrabble) and some Tervalakritsin ja tervasalmiakin makuisia makeisia (I thought that was the Finnish cross country skiing team) sent by Doctor Nicolai Lordi.


It (they) have nothing to do with the national cross country team. No. The contain of these packets are used here as insecticides. Since I'm finally free from Phthirus pubis these packets were left over, and I have no (acute) use for them.

I'd like to know what he did with the torte that he initially tried to send to me


It didn't properly fit in the envelope without muscle power, and knowing your perfectionist eye to pristine tortes, I send the torte filled envelope to RTW instead. :roll:

Popped in on their website, and my dear friend, the choice seems a bit anemic. :roll: Oi, once you get out of the hospital, you should treat yourself a trip to Vienna. :roll:

Their foodhall has a far better selection than the site suggests - and you get far better service than you find down the road in that tacky Egyptian Corner shop in Knightsbridge!

This place isn't too bad either, and it is slightly closer than Vienna 8)

What is your favourite food? Foodball! :roll:

I'll have to trust you on this. I would have ordered you a Sacher Torte right away, but they don't deliver Tortes outside UK. :cry:

No, I won't ask them to send it to you directly. As a responsible person, I'd be obliged to taste it myself, in case of Salmonella, Jason Disease, just to make sure. Then I would feel safe to send it to you as an Economy parcel sent by snails. :roll:
