And they say Finns are serious, solemn and closed-up.

And keep silent – in two official languages. index

 Finnish comedian Ismo Leikola has been awarded as the winner of the Funniest Person in the World competition, tells the Associated Press. The final was held last Friday in Las Vegas.

The competition was streamed over the Internet and people could vote their favourite candidate. When the votes were counted on Monday, Leikola had altogether 158,945 votes. In second place was Saad Haroon of Pakistan with 59,213 votes.

Leikola’s joke in the semifinal round about the planet’s international monetary woes hit the jackpot:

— Countries don’t owe money to each other, countries owe money to banks.
If the countries owe money to banks how stupid are the countries to pay.
Like the country has an army
.
The bank has four cashiers and a cleaning lady.
