For Those Who Mocked Me

And you said an online English-Finnish dictionary was sheer folly. A fig for your humbuggery! The truth -- in two languages -- can now be told!

Let me be the first to say:

Kukaan merkityksellinen haastaa suomalainen.

I formally object to your bilingual criticisms while humbly acknowledging the good sense and wisdom inherent in your tortured Finnish phrase, the meaning of which I will not divulge here but will be clear to anyone who cares to do ten seconds of sleuthing. For the record, one cannot translate English to Finnish word by word and then string the translations together in an English order to produce sensible Finnish, especially an attack on a Weblog. The language just doesn't work like that. How it does work is anybody's guess; I think even the Finns don't know half the time. I mean, LOOK at that stuff. It's like someone fell asleep on a keyboard.
