So, while trying to find pictures of the Finnish president to show to Chip because he's mentioned on the show that she looks like him, I also found this open letter written to Conan O' Brien by a Finn, encouraging him to visit Finland, and... I think I may understand why Tuomo Ruutu (and Ville Nieminen, and Jarkko Ruutu, and Hannu Toivonen, etc) are all insane.

Things Conan O' Brien should know about Finland

Here are my favourite bits:

David Lynch is 1/4 Finn - his grandfather was a Finn and very strange inward person.

Finns were last in Europe to have their own writing language - we are forest people, we were forced to be " civilized " by aggressive Swedish and Danish soldiers, reverends and monks who destroyed all our special sacred trees

Finns were Sweden´s slaves and it´s army in years 1400-1550 and we were very brutal and furious soldiers and that´s why Sweden was superpower and got rich country - robbing Europe by slave Finn-soldiers. But Sweden left us alone with war with Soviet Union. Thats bitter thing.

Swedes have been stolen sauna's marketing - their lame Swedish hot rooms are nothing like original hot saunas.

And then, the mention of a mysterious, feral race of people known only as "wild Finns"!


I have heard that city of Turku is inviting you. Allright. They are our
"Texas", ruled by many elitist moneygangs.

Helsinki is "only" civilized place in Finland but you know, if you are
looking for speechless and facelss yuppies, go for Turku.

In Helsinki there is suburban place named Kontula. There you will see
quite wild Finns. Oh man. Pub and more pubs. Thats our Harlem. There´s our hip hop-culture and rebellious young street girls, "pissing princesses". Poorest but proudest Finns.

And, for Kennedy and Kate:

Procentually we have in Finland most in the world: most succesful rally drivers "flying Finns"

I was watching with my mom and first she was laughing at me because I have this tendancy to yell at the characters to stop being stupid, but once there was the cake scene she pretty much thought I had lost my mind.

You just know that this is what the slash writers on the show have been working towards ever since they started the series!!!!!!!!

YES! OH my God, YES. Like, when she called them a couple I thought "yay slashy joke" and expected them to deny it but then THEY SO TOTALLY WENT FOR IT and not just a little bit but THE KISSING AND THE DECLARATIONS OF LOVE AND I AM JUST SO GLAD I WAS TAPING BECAUSE I NEED TO SEE THAT AGAIN.

Oh and at the end, Christian and Sean sitting in the church and Sean saying he's coming back to him and Christian with tears in my eyes and like, maybe there's no big gathering in the church, and no priest, and no ceremony, and no rings, but but but that might be the closest to truly married they'll ever get!!!!!!!!!

Okay, ignoreing my quibble of Sean saying "you've never been alone" considering that no one has abandoned him more than Sean, YES. Just...YES. Not only was that just so wonderful and made me so happy but SEAN SAID "I DO" and....yeah.

Using my newfound powers, I'm going to keep that scene as an .avi forever!!!
