    Do you mean the Swedish phrase(s) in the Septentrionalis quote?

    If so here is a roughly translation.

    English - "Get-up-and-go Sweden! But kindly stay home!"

    Swedish - "Heja Sverige! Men vänligen stanna hemma!"
    Under patronage of General Brewster of the Imperial House of Hader.

    That is an acquired taste, to say the least. Like potato gratin something in which turned sour a long time before you put it on your plate. We acquired the taste sometime after Sweden acquired our lands.

    The Swedes themselves only eat it during Christmas season. We eat eat it year round, because Swedes respect Finns and want their subjugated nations to feel festive and happy at all times.

    This is a great opportunity to learn something about other peoples. I'll be glad to help you get started and Leonardo already translated some of it. Apologies for annoying you by use of foreign languages. Although Swedes maintain that their language is not foreign by any means. Even us Finns are required to call it "the other domestic language" and pretend to be learning it at all schools.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Janssons_frestelse

    Ärtsoppa is literally pea soup, and the particular version traditionally has minced pork and herbs in it. It is usually eaten with mustard and occasionally with chopped uncooked onion. It is often followed by a pancake dessert, a further testimony for Sweden wanting to provide their subjects with the sweet life.

    Indeed. That is something what happen when CNN decided to have a list of 10 things you should know about Sweden a couple of years ago and here (the middle quote) I mentioned it.

    Thank you! That article could have detailed Finland as well apart from fika, which is not institutionalized like in Sweden. The concept is somewhat known, though. But nine out of ten match perfectly.

    I am also glad to learn that you adopted a restricting policy what comes to wildfires instead of going for herd immunity.

    I am for a Swedish Finnish union because of the very unambiguous shape their country would have.

    But also: Can the Fins pls stop pretending to be Scandinavian? Your closest relatives are the Estonians, Hungarians and lots of people in Russia. Wear them Adidas sports clothes gopnik style and proudly.

    If and when the Swedish problem is resolved in a Himmler-style Final Solution or just a simple merger with Finland as proposed above, does that mean I would no longer be able to enjoy my ancestral Swedish pancakes that my mom used to make during childhood? They're basically a rip-off of French crepes anyway, so maybe I could just call them that.

    No, you may not. Though no big loss. Swedish pancakes are crêp

    Please do not confuse us with your Indo-European brethren from Russia. Feel free to wear your tri paloski and go squat and pop sunflower seeds with them. Don't wait for me.

    You are right about Scandinavian though, but you are overlooking an important thing. Throughout the centuries of happily serving our Swedish masters and enjoying their delicacies, we have become much like them. Like the way a dog and its owner are. Let me illustrate it:

    Haha, thank you for not calling Khazars.
    Seeds and Adidas are no longer relevant, you are behind the times, man. Russian gopniks have long switched to burgers with Cola and are dying of obesity. The culture of mass media is to blame, scientists are sounding the alarm and some suggest assigning the status of an endangered people to gopniks in order to somehow preserve the population. Finland, as the personification of the progressive Western world should join this action, the slogan has already been invented "let's save the Gopnik together"

    NO, IT'S NOT! YOU'RE WRONG! A FINAL SOLUTION COULD JUST BE A GENERIC PHRASE THAT CAN APPLY TO MANY THINGS! FOR INSTANCE, LET'S SAY YOU HAVE THREE BOTTLES OF CONTACT LENS SOLUTION AND YOU USE THE FIRST TWO, AND NOW YOU ONLY HAVE THE THIRD BOTTLE OF LIQUID LENS SOLUTION LEFT. THAT'S THE FINAL SOLUTION!

    YOU MAKE ME SO ANGRY, AKAR, THAT I COULD JUST SCREAM! HOW DARE YOU EVEN CHALLENGE ME ON THIS. YOU WANT MORE EXAMPLES? WELL YOU JUST ASKED FOR THEM YOU BIG JERK! HOW ABOUT WHEN A PARENT RUNS OUT OF OPTIONS FOR DISCIPLINING THEIR KIDS? TIME TO SEND THEM TO BOOT CAMP OR BOARDING SCHOOL AS A FINAL SOLUTION TO THE PROBLEM!

    HIMMLER'S NAZI FINAL SOLUTION WASN'T THE ONLY FINAL SOLUTION HENCE WHY IT IS A HIMMLER-STYLE SOLUTION! I hope all of that makes sense and that you feel enormous shame and regret for even bringing this up, you big know-it-all.

    There's no amount of lens solution that I could drink that would make Sweden disappear though sending the entire country to "boarding schools" might work.

    Sweden so fat, if we sink it, that wouldn't bode well for Denmark.
