My pet peeve Finnish phrase
Finnish sayings can be stupid, but this has got to be the most stupid ever:
"If you let a piece of cake fall sideways when you take it from the tray, you will get a bad mother-in-law." ("Jos kaataa kakkupalan, saa huonon anopin.")
I mean - COME ON! Your entire relationship with a possibly completely perfect human ENTIRELY RUINED by one fumbled feat of dexterity? Of which any regularly social person will have about a MILLION opportunities to fail before the wedding bells ring?
What about if the cake is just badly constructed? How would it look like if, after several years of torment from a mother-in-law-from-hell someone turned up to your doorstep with a hatchet and demanded revenge over one slippery frosting? Imagine the responsibility and diligence one would have to exercise to ensure a good life for all friends?
