Pimppiralli - Fannyrally

An act of Finnish vocational school students. Take one person who will drive a car for you, preferably a tuned car with badass subwoofers etc. Gather a few teenaged girls on the backseats, get yourself and the girls drunk and drive around the city (or more like town or village), listen Eurodance (commonly known as “Amispoppi”) LOUD and… well. That’s about it.

Hiding diatoms

Piilevät piilevät piilevät joissa joissa piilevät piilevät piilevät

Hiding diatoms hide in rivers where hiding diatoms hide

—- Fan submission, thanks  

That’s so lovely. Reminded me of this:

Kai kissa kaikissa joissa, joissa se koittaa onkia, se koittaa sekoittaa onkia.

Apparently in every river where a cat attempts to fish it attempts to muddle with the fishing poles.

Building up a bonfire

- Kokko! Kokoo kokoon koko kokko!
- Koko kokkoko?
- Koko kokko!
- Ok, kokoon kokoon koko kokon!

Two people talking with each other:
- Kokko (a surname)! Build the whole bonfire up!
- The whole bonfire?
- The whole bonfire!
- Alright, I’ll build up the whole bonfire!

Who is gonna bet with me how many people drown this midsummer?

I’m a bit late for this answer but my guess for this year was 6-9. Now it seems like only one person has drowned.

juhannuksena kuuluu olla alasti, kännissä ja saunassa tai sitten vaikka patsaassa.

Speaking of midsummer magic, did you see the piece of news at Yle's website where the police warned about spells? They were serious too.

The “If you light up the bonfire with gas your bride will see you in hospital”? Yeah. Police’s midsummer spells are hardcore but educational. There should be also “If you are drunk and go swimming or stand up in a rowing boat your partner might see you in the morgue”…
