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.
