This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Finland article.
Hmm. It's very long, so I don't think it should ever be subjected to "speedy deletion". There's a huge amount of passionate work in there, and many have contributed to it and it shows. --sigs
I try to point out when there's in-jokes, so: the Oscar Wilde quote at the top is a Monty Python in-joke (of sorts), so don't delete it, as it's quite funny. --Joachim22 06:11, 14 Dec 2005 (UTC)
I checked the link at the Culture section ( Death to artsy fags ) and removed it, seeing it was irrelevant with this article. If you are going to revert it please state why. --Unissakävelijä 08:22, 9 Dec 2005 (UTC)
Was this vandalized? Or maybe someone doesn't know how to use tags. --Unissakävelijä 14:48, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)
- I reverted to 220.127.116.11's last edit, which is the newest edit that looks neat. From that point on, 18.104.22.168 has vandalized the page out of complete idiocy. This is a must see. And they say Finns are intelligent.. -- Unissakävelijä 12:56, 20 Aug 2005 (UTC)
This shit abaut finland pisses me off. Why write this bullshit?
- Deliberately to annoy you, It's all a big conspiracy didn't you get the letter? --Sir Elvis KUN | Petition 15:20, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I hope nobody will take this seriously...
I think it's kind of pathetic to vandalize a free encyclopedia project. Even though I had a good laugh.
- This is a vandalized encyclopedia, hence the name. Go figure. --Unissakävelijä 08:25, 9 Dec 2005 (UTC)
hey, seriously guys, please...
What is so funny in here. Every single word about Finland is true. I have been crying ever since I was born.

- Finland is not a warm country in the Caribbean for a starter. Thus, good sir, your argument is invalid. --Unissakävelijä 07:43, 4 Jan 2006 (UTC)
This page just isn't funny! And it doesn't follow the random content of all of the other pages. Would suggest total destruction and have someone who can take Finland NOT so seriously to make a new page from scratch. Really, most of the stuff in here is FACT! Ja perk*le, jos meinataan tehdä suomesta huumorisivu, niin sitten kans tehään. Tää ei oo mikään v*tun Wikipedia!
- iawtc, this article is seriously lacking in the lulz department. You should check out ED's article on Finland, it's obviously way funnier. --Gayus 21:44, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
WE WILL PREVAIL!
We wil revenge this, honest
Pellet, täällä ei näköjään kyllä tiedetä yhtikäs mitään Suomesta. Hyvää yötä teillekin. t: Jaajaajoo

I'm also an exchange student to finland at the moment, in kuopio and ur article is just... fucking true ;) although i haven't noticed some of the stuff u were telling about i aggree with about 80% of the article.
I've been here since like 3,5 months now and they're still fucking givin' me a hard time. If drinking is so common then why the hell r they opening their clubs for only people about 18. and if they've been isolated such a long time, why don't they communicate with every single person out of the perhaps 5 year, who visits finland???
sorry for any mistakes, juli
Slander! Outright slander!
I would have it known to all who might read this kind of shit that there are entire sections in this article that could be considered exaggerated, if not outright lies!
For instance, not every Finn is as constantly and heavily drunk, as this article would have it! I, myself, have been sober since Mayday (excepting this actual moment)!
Not every Finn carries a knife (at all times)! I, for instance carry a knife only on special occasions (which does NOT mean weekdays).
Ja sitäpaitsi, tää artikkeli on ihan selvästi suomalaisten suomalaisille kirjoittama. Siirtäkää tää suomalaiseen Hikipediaan. Sen vastaava oli paljon vähemmän hauska. Oikeesti!
P.S. I will NOT be signing ANYthing till someone tells me what a 'tilded' is and how I can find one on my keyboard.
I think this picture would be great for Uncyclopedia:  (warning: NSFW), but I'm not sure how (I guess there'd be a need for some NSFW template on top). Also, anyone knows where the f this comes from? So we don't need to rip stuff from other humor sites. --Kamek 05:22, 4 June 2007 (UTC)
I have just split the article into several different articles. This way, we don't have one giant page that's uninteresting. --06:52, 5 July 2007 (UTC)
Donald Duck/Aku Ankka
There should be some things about Donald Duck on here. Like Donald Duck was banned in Finland because he not only didn't wear any pants, but he didn't wear a shirt either. Some said he was in a sauna and was having the cold air blow on his back, but others thought he was protesting for nudists rights and kids were coming home from school at the time.MrCleveland 20:48, 29 September 2008 (UTC)
I think internet would be _almost_ perfect if all the finland related articles were steamrolled and all future edits from finnish IPs banned. Look at the glory of the page for sweden and compare it to the horror of: fun substituted with saying opposite / totally inward turned "humour" that's not even funny for a finnish reader. ( well to be honest some of it is, but only very little of it :O! ) / touch of angsty teenagers (eg. lack of fun) and bitter men on their twenties (like me). If I could I'd evolve into a butterfly and fly into a volcano rather than have this nightmare exist in the fabric of reality itself. Please just make it at least bad, just bad and generic, that would work.
poopoo jokes are always crappy, even more crappy than crap jokes though this is poo. removed that acid joke, it was poo-r
This article is indeed very unfunny and full of crap. I've started removing some of the utter nonsense that's really just a pile of made up drivel with no connection to reality and replacing it with something that at least attempts to be satirical. Not saying that I'm the funniest person alive but come on, you could write a funny article about Finland without having to pull any silly names from your arse or make up anything at all.

This page is racistic. --22.214.171.124 16:53, April 29, 2011 (UTC)
The "famous finnish phrases" section is rather distasteful, concentrating on dull swearing mostly. --126.96.36.199 19:48, October 29, 2011 (UTC)
Kept me laughing. Nice work. Most of it is indeed directed for the Finns themselves, I figure. Yeah I'm Finnish. Btw someone needs to put up a picture of our beloved leader, Tavja Halonen. Use this: http://jaskabk.files.wordpress.com/2007/09/halonen_2.jpg 188.8.131.52 15:46, October 21, 2009 (UTC)
