  1. Leningrad Cowboys rock! You should check out the movie “Leningrad Cowboys Go America”….it’s this perfect piece of low-key absurdism that is Finnish Humor (and it’s in sort-of English, even, hehe).

    I don’t think they’re seuss shoes — my impression is that they’re really exaggerated 50’s style pointy allegator-shoes. To go along with the exaggerated Elvis hair.

    hold on: Finnish humor?

  3. Indeed. Finnish humor. Often absurd, almost always a bit melancholy. I swear to you, it exists. Hey there’s even a book about <a href=”http://www.amazon.com/Finnish-Folklore-Studia-Fennica-Folkloristica/dp/9517179383/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1207758517&sr=1-5″it.
