What do you do when there’s a bear on your porch? Swear at it of course! There’s just something swarthy about the way the Finns swear! I couldn’t stop watching this.
Oh man, this video really had me rolling, almost as hard as this guy can roll an R.
“Perkele” is Finnish swear word that roughly translates to “devil”. It’s considered to be rude profanity that carries more weight than other common Finnish swear words. At one time in history, it was believed to be a cry to the gods to give you strength.
Later, as Finland became Christianized beginning in the 12th century, the pagan gods became demonized and the swear word evolved to mean devil. So it has quite a history!
