To say nothing of the drinking vodka resources.

Just because you wear a greyhound owners cap, it doesn't entitle you to chase rabbits.

Please present your comparative figues for annual per capita comparative consumption of alcohol in Norway and Finland. The loser offfers the winner a night out in the local nightspot of choice,

Welcome to Helsinki...

I don't have the figures, but while we can't compete with you wackos (and please take that in an affectionate sense), we Norsemen do have a certain reputation on the continent for prodigious binge drinking. This despite the odds being stacked against us by an unholy alliance of social-democratic paternalists and pietist loons.

I'm talking here about £30-50 a pint and £40-50 for a decent single malt.

But you know Sven, unless we drop this subject (and yes, I am aware that I raised it), we'll be at risk from the air marshall, not for the first time.

So I'll pour myself one instead, and dream of Helsinki.

Have we ever really disagreed? Or have we merely indulged in the standard Nordic ball-bashing.

Come to Helsinki and let me show you a good time. A little fisticuffs is merely part of a good evening out...In between we might solve the problems of the world...

Right, we haven't disagreed -- the air marshall was in reference to hijacking...

I'll see you in Helsinki before this lifetime is over, drink you pitifully under the table, and thump my chest!

That depends on what we drink - but I must warn you that I once drank a Finnish general onto the floor.

You can still thump your chest, the moral victory will be clear ;-9
