Conan O'Brien Hates My Homeland

While he already prove his affection for my homeland of Canada by hosting a week of shows in Toronto, Conan has now demonstrated his feelings for my adopted homeland of Finland. It seems Conan is doing a bit called "Conan Hates My Homeland" which elicited a premature response from a Finnish viewer with the single line "Perkele, from Finland" (a rather saucy expletive, which the suggested equivalents of "damn, hell" don't quite do justice). The Nokian tire postcard is such a nice touch (betchya didn't know Nokia made tires before mobile phones). UPDATE: The Finnish response has been overwhelming, with Conan receiving a veritable deluge of postcards... ALL from Finland. In the episode that aired on Tuesday this week in the US will show tonight (11.6.04) on SubTV in Finland, Conan is so shocked an moved by the outpouring that he gives Suomi its proper respect, and finally and rightly proclaims that "Sweden Sucks". Check it out here.
