Once again its time for all you dudes out there to learn a little something about Dudeism in Scandinavia (is anyone reading these anyway?) I know last time I said I was going to write about famous dudes in Scandinavian history but instead I’m giving you an article on Dudeist Scandinavian proverbs, or sayings if you will, because — if you will it, it is no dream.
Right now you’re probably thinking “This digression will not stand man,” but hey maybe I’ll do that article next time. Today — what day is this, a weekday? — anyway, today you get to read about this instead.
Now you might recognize some of these, as I bet some of you have versions of these where you live as well. That’s how the whole durned human comedy keeps perpetuating itself — southward, the wagons. Mind if i smoke a J? Good, so here we go.

Sorry there aren’t so many Finnish ones but theirs are mostly about getting drunk and beating people up.
