"Säästösyistä tunnelin päässä näkyvä valo on sammutettu"= "The light at the end of the tunnel is off to conserve energy/money." No matter how bad it gets there's always light at the end of the tunnel. Except in Finland because we can't fit that in the budget

Is finnish really that hard? Like I'm from Finland and it feels so simple and when I saw you struggling with those memes I was so confused. But well finnish is one of the most hardest language in the world so I'm not surprised. (And if this sounds like hate comment this is not.)

Google Translate is your worst enemy when looking at Finnish memes. In my opinion, everyone who makes memes in Finnish should make sure they can still be understood correctly when using Google Translate. Difficult but doable.

The one with Väinämöinen I guess expects you to know kalevala. And calling Väinämöinen a hero is wrong on sooo many levels... main character yes. Hero not so much, as demonstrated by the story behind this meme. On the one side you have old man Väinämöinen (vaka vanha Väinämöinen) on the other young Aino who's forced to become his wife and the only way to escape Aino finds is to drown herself. There is an awesome painting of that scene in the Ateneum btw.

Please make more of these type of videos but maybe have a finnish friend with you (on Discord?) who can actually explain finnish memes since most of them are either grammatically challenging.

Some of the memes were just bad like the moomin not saying good morning. And all of them were new ones to me. But the Väinämöinen meme was just hilarious. There is this very well known sentence from Kalevala: ”Vaka vanha Väinämöinen laski laulellen vesiä”, which is kind of old finnish and not said like that anymore, but it is translated like ”Stable old Väinämöinen singing while went along the stream of water (maybe with a boat?)” or as it also sounds to modern people: ”Stable old Väinämöinen singing while taking a leak”. That’s another meme. We don’t know or understand our Kalevala so well at all. But this one just makes the Vainamoinen look like some kind of voodoo man and ”Waka waka” is just sounding like ”vakaa vanha”, and some nonsensical warnings about him. It’s just downright silly. It reminds me of some jesus jokes

Uukausi sitten
Mikko Heikkilä
Mikko Heikkilä

Also in Kalevala there is used ”vaka” instead of ”vakaa”, which means stable. No one uses ”vaka” anymore and it seems like typo. So maybe this ”waka waka” is making fun of that typo

The whole Kalevala is something we all are forced to read at some point during elementary school. It is considered somehow important national story but honestly it is boring and makes no sense to children that age. The phrases are almost like different language and hard to understand. Reading it makes you wait there was some kind of catch but there is no catch, it’s not funny or interesting or anything. Like ”Ok, there is this guy singing and going down the stream, so what then? I guess it’s kind of storytelling, of what I could understand about it”. Then after you have been forced to read it you’ll never do it again. It kind of makes my head hurt like yours when you tried to understand the memes. Makes no sense for the most part. So maybe the joke is about the nonsense of original Kalevala too. Makes just as much sense. Made me crack a little bit :) Similar to the mandatory cross-country skiing for all children like two times a year at school. Parents have to buy skis and bring them to school because of that. And children need to haul them around school. Makes no sense and no one likes it but it’s part of being finnish I guess? Some old stuff.

2:49 "For conservation reasons the light _visible_ at the end of the tunnel has been shut." 3:26 "(We) have where to choose from." 4:30 "Therapist: The Old, Old Väinämöinen is not real, he can't hurt you." The picture is from the music video of Shakira's song "Africa", in which the word "Waka" is said multiple times. ("Waka" itself means nothing, but is an affirmative word for the word "vanha" [old], meaning he's _very_ old.) 6:21 (From left to right) "Me at the fridge at 3 AM" "Milk" "Something that's gone bad many months ago and I'm too afraid to open it anymore" "Cottage cheese" 7:13 "I always say 'morning' and not 'good morning', for were it a good morning I would still be in bed, not talking to people."

Memes are tricky because they usually require that you completely understand the sentence and have a good grasp on the culture as well, due to the minimal amount of context provided. So not a good measure for how well you know your basics, but probably a great tool for when you're more familiar with the language and culture. :) Also, as a Finnish translator I'm relieved to see that google translate won't replace me for a while...

Great idea for a video, cheers! How about a sequel with Cat (and/or Finnish friends) coming up with popular or iconic Finnish memes for you to react to? I agree that these memes weren't too funny and I had hard time understanding a couple of them even though I am a native Finn (for example I knew the waka waka one was about Väinämöinen and Shakira's song, but I didn't completely understand how they are related except for vaka/waka wordplay). This is why you could ask for the popular/iconic instead of just some memes that turn out to be hilariously weird only in one person's opinion.

Google translator messed up the Kekkonen meme aswell. "Pientä Kekkoa" should be just "Small Kekkoa", as "kekko" is not the same as "keko" which means "pile" in english. Not the greatest meme anyway, but it's kinda shame that the translator messes the words like that. For some reason google translator can't translate finnish to english properly but if you translate finnish to any other language it goes really smoothly.

On a (boyfriends) family dinner, after dessert, someone said in finnish something like "if you sit too long at dinner/by the table you get lazy kids". All laughed exept me. "Oh, you don't speak finnish." And they translated that part for me (rest of conversations still unrevealed though). But what did they say in finnish? I've asked others from Swedish Tornedalen, but noone's heard of it. Is it a saying from "real Finland" (Swedish Tornedalen have it's own "Finnish" called Meänkieli.)?

No, Dave, Finnish memes are not a good test on your Finnish understanding skills. They are hard to translate because people use spoken language so much and never learned grammar rules. Apparently some people can't even get punctuation marks in their right places smh. It would be a very good idea to do something like this with a Finn who can explain these to you. Then we could actually see your reactions. Could Cat be in a meme-reacting video with you?

Check these together with Cat - if you two can handle the process. Jokes are not the easiest parts of any language. Just think how witty the word games are in English. That's pretty much the same everywhere. If you want to see a Finnish mind set in humour, Ismo Leikola in English is a pretty good representation. BUT - I appreciate your effort. The best choice for now is maybe to settle for one sentence understood. And doubt Coocle, sorry: go ogle a bit what the Google suggests - it doesn't get the grammar endings right, plus beware of synonyms: for example the word like in English (there's 2 of them (like, if you like word puns). So take the core meaning of a word given by the Google (Kuukkeli as a Finnish pun), then try to change the preposition etc. Try connecting it with the words before ... And still just settle that you can't get all of them yet.
