Thursday threat

Now, loyal readers, we hope your knowledge of Finnish is growing. Today we will present you with a slightly more old fashioned and more difficult phrase. 'Konstit on monet sanoi eukko kun kissalla pöytää pyyhki'. This basically means there are many different ways of doing things. However it literally translates as something hideous like 'there are many ways to do things, says the old woman who wipes her table with a cat'.
Don't even think about trying anything stupid like that - if this is what we do to feathers, think what we can do to you! Pah!

Odoteltiinkin, että koskahan otat tämän sananlaskun käsittelyyn. Meillä ei onneksi pyyhitä pöytää kissalla, saisi pyyhkijä kynnestä tai hampaasta!

HaHaMeow! We would never dream of wiping the table with you, sweetie. Those fearsome fangs have got us shaking in our shoes! That feather never had a chance.

Wipe a table with a cat? Who ever came up with that one? Some old woman? Never! You show me someone trying to wipe a table with a cat and I'll show you someone in need of a bandage or two. Hmmph!!!

No wiping of the table with me, no! Even if mum is finnish.

If anyone tries table wiping with us they better sleep with their eyes open in the future.

OK, we are assuming that "kissalla" is "with a cat" and we suggest you "kissallthat" goodbye!
