Survey Says ....

I just read two unrelated survey tidbits regarding Finnish rankings within the European community: Finns rated #2 in aggregate happiness, but also #2 in per capita alcohol consumption.

This means the survey results on happiness were either wildly fanciful and "creative", or that drinking makes one happy.

(Yes, I realize the three-step logical fallacy involved, for the humorously-challenged.)

Being of half-Finnish ancestry, this puts me in a dubious bind. And I get no relief from the other half of my forebears: my orphaned father was of the tippling Irish.

Where's my refridgerated tub of Koskenkorva?
