More Scandinavian lunacy. Sure, everyone hates Flash/Shockwave, the pestilence of the Internet, yada yada yada. But everyone loved the race-track builder, and making your own rock video of an iron-pumping cow is easy, fun and worth downloading Macromedia plug-ins. Bonus points for any Finns out there who want to provide a translation.

Yes. I speak that language... Here's the basic gist:

"Moo. Moo. Moo. Moo-moo. Moo. Moo moo moo. Moo-moo. Moo! Mooo. Moo moo. Moo moo moo. Moo moo moo moo moo moo? Moo! Moo moo. Moo. Moo, moo moo moo. Moo... mmmmm-moo!"

In case you're wondering, I learned to speak that language in finishing school.

It's not Finnish. It's Swedish (like the racetrack, and like hatten ar din). Let me break out the ordbok and give it a whirl.

Finnish has lots of diphthongs (like uo and ii). Swedish has lots of vowels with funny symbols on top.
