Meanwhile at the front... by tuomaskoivurinne Meanwhile at the front... by tuomaskoivurinne
Soldier: Colonel, the Russians have captured "Fox 1"!
Colonel: Order the Savonian Company into counterattack immediately!

Someone: Charge! (with Savonian dialect)


EXPLANATION: Few days back, was having a beer with my friends at "Ruby & The Fellows" in Tampere, and we discussed about Finnish comics (and especially about "Fingerpori" by Pertti Jarla, in which the verbal humour is often based on wordplay and puns) when Mr. Haverinen brought up this idea. I promised to draw this.
FURTHER EXPLONATION: The joke is in the regional difference in sauna custom. Leafy, fragrant boughs of silver birch (to beat oneself with in sauna) is called vihta in West Finland, and vasta in the East. Thus, when ordered into vastahyökkäys (counterattack), well... you get this.

Nerokasta! Hihittelin ääneen kun niin hyvä vitsi ja toteutus. Hienoa tussien käytttöä.

Kiitos, kuten kuvatekstistä käy ilmi, hyvä vitai on usein hyvinkin yksinkertainen. Ja tällaisia sarjakuviahan tuolta meikäläisen galleriasta löytyy paljon enemmänkin.
Tuo tussi, eli Pentelin sivellinkynä on aika hyvä sarjakuvanpiirtoon, nopeampi kuin sivellin ja viiva on paljon elävämpää kuin tussi/huopakynä (miksi sitä haluatkaan kutsua). Suosittelen Pentelettä.

Eilen tuossa kattelinkin jo galleriaas läpi, mutta kun se on niin täynnä kaikkea hienoa niin pitää tehdä vielä ainaskin toinen keikka.

Itse en ole vielä sivellinkyniä hankkinut, mutta ne on tuolla taidekaupassa huhuilleet perään aika houkuttelevasti. Pidänpä tuon Penteleen mielessä siltä varalta että lankean. :) Vois olla kiva kokeilla piirtää vähän rennommalla kynällä välillä.

Russians have their own sauna culture, but unfortunately they seem to have forgotten it. Meaning that public saunas in Finnish spas etc. are constantly crowded by Russian tourists.
As one stand-up comedian put it; after the war, we lost territories like Karelia and Porkkala (coastal area rented as a Soviet naval base near Helsinki)... well, we got Porkkala back, I wish we could regain Serena (huge water park in Espoo). :)

Ehkä en vaan tajua, mitä savolaiset puhuvat... Pelkään, että ne myyvät meikäläisen huomaamatta tai jotain, kun en käsitä niitten juttuja ;).

Savo-antipatiaani selittänee(?) sekin, että suurin osa tapaamistani savolaisista on ollut ihan täysiä kyrpiä. Käsittämättömiä änkyröitä, joiden pitää ihan periaatteesta jänkätä vastaan ja päteä. Yrrrrh!

Mutta juu, ihan täyspäisiäkin ihmisiä mahtunee Savoon myös. (Ainakin oli yksi tosi pätevä vm sieltäpäin kotoisin, käsittämätön huumorintaju ja into tehdä töitä. En vissiin koskaan nähnyt sitä pahalla päällä.)

Aina tehdään niinkuin käsketään. Se on hyvän sotilaan motto. Vastahyökkäys on VASTAhyökkäys. :D

Vasta/vihta... ikuinen dilemma. :XD:

Hieno idea ja toteutus. Onnittelut siitä teille molemmille. Niin sinulle kuin mr. Haveriselle. :)
