Disco in the Holy Language

Just in case anyone missed this kneeslapper by RhymingBlue on the Yahoo site, here it is:
Ol' Laestadius making you spastic on the dance floor? Feeling your inner beat wanting to squirm past the "sorrowing sinner" filter? Look no further: dance instructions in Finnish. It sounds like Finnish, so you'll have some comfort to cling to as you venture one foot out into the world.

(The above was based on my personal experience of much sitting under translated sermons from Finnish, until there was an automatic connection between the Finnish language and the Laestadian tradition.)

Thank you, RB. I just watched it again tonight for some comic relief. That demonstration of the hip bump is priceless.

  3. Oh, is that the famous Åke? I had heard about him but didn't know what he looked like...

    Funny clothes and hairstyles, is that 70s?

    I also didn't know disco dance is not just total anarchy but there are actually different step patterns you are supposed to follow. I thought you can just jump around the way you wish... :)
