Finsk druk

Finnerne har ufortjent eller ej et ry for at være særligt glade for at drikke alkohol, masser af alkohol.

Synd for de gode finner, som ikke kan styre indtaget af Lapin Kulta og Koskenkorva, men deres drikkekultur er sjov og interessant – ikke mindst deres vokabularium for…. druk.

Forfatter og ølblogger Lars Marius Garshol har samlet en række udtryk for druk på sine rejser i Finland.

Han har offentliggjort dem på sin blog Larsblog med overskriften ‘A small dictonary of Finnish drinking words‘.

I indledningen til artiklen om ‘det finske druksprog’ pointerer han, fordi de mange udtryk er meget usædvanlige, at der ikke er tale om en joke, fx udtrykket suojakänni.

Hør hvordan Lars Marius beskriver soujakänni:

“This literally means “defensive drunk” and the idea is that you’re going to some kind of party tomorrow, and you’re worried that you’re going to get a little too drunk at the party. You’re Finnish, remember. So the brilliant trick is that you get drunk today! That way, you’ll be able to handle more alcohol tomorrow, and you won’t get too drunk at the party. It’s this tactic that’s known as suojakänni: you’re getting defensive drunk today to ward off problems tomorrow.”

Lars Marius Garshol har bl.a. haft ølblogger og -kender Mika Laitinen til at hjælpe sig med sin research. Mika gjorde Lars opmærksom på, at en bog (Kippurahäntä – Alkoholiaiheisen perinnekilpailun satoa) fra 1977 har optalt 948 udtryk for druk og berusede finner.

Lars Marius Garshol er specialist i norsk gårdøl og har skrevet bøgerne ‘Gårdøl‘ og ‘Historical Brewing Techniques‘.
