Cafeteria

A few nights ago I went to an outside terrace of a cafe. It was a warm summer day, and to my surprise (probably since the presidential election in here are taking place now), all the candidates were sitting in the Cafe.

There were lots of reporters takin photos and stuff, and I just accidentally happened to crash in there. I was trying to ignore it all, since in the real life, I'm not too enthusiastic about the elections circus (unlike Conan O'Brian is...). I rather dream AND vote, not just vote.

So how big of a Phenomenon is Conan there. From whathe's been saying on the show lately he seems to be HUGE there.

Is he correct in saying that the reason for his popularity is that he looks like , what's her name Targa Halonen or something? I figure that there has to some reason deeper than that though. It will be interesting if he comes over there to do some shows.

So how did the election go anyway and do think Conan had an effect on the outcome?

He's exaggerating, his show is actually on cable TV and not as popular as he claims. It's funny that the Finnish jerk-offs (mainly from TURKU) sending him the idiotic videotapes seem not to understand they're aired since they look stupid

Mrs Halonen (Tarja, actually spelled like Tarya) won the elections, so she'll be the president for another 6 years. Conan may have had some effect, but not very much I think. But his show is good though.

That clip he keeps showing from Turku does look pretty damn dorky!

And you're right about that being why he keeps showing it.

Also, did you see the show in which Conan ran an ad for Tarya in which 3 people (one being Conan) are ice fishing and they are speaking Finnish wiht english subtitles?

That guy on the right seemed to be speaking quite believable Finnish. Conan's was a little shakier but as a Finn could you understand Conan's Finnish speaking well? Conan is not gifted with languages but he does make an effort. Which is more than most Americans do.

And he is decently aware of things in general internationally. Much more so than our idiot President Bush. (but who isn't?)

True, unfortunately I havenĀ“t seen that show, however I saw the one in which the band sung for Tarja in Finnish, I have to say I had to read the subtitles to get what they were singing But ten points for the effort for them! I love when Bush is "visiting" Conan's show, that's hilarious. I've read a great book, called something like "This is war by Georg W. Bush", full of intentional grammar and spelling errors and pictures which are as if kids had drawn them, except that there's mostly bombs and (other) adult stuff in them. Nice!
