Mark Twain once famously said, “The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.” The power of this weapon was beautifully demonstrated when the Soldiers of Odin (someone should tell them Odin was the foreign god of their colonial overlords) decided to skulk around the streets of Tampere. This group, which has taken to patrolling various Finnish towns to “protect” people from immigrants, few of whom would be stupid enough to hang out on the streets in minus 20 anyway, were met with a real threat on Saturday. Ridicule.
LOL at Seig Fail!
The Loldiers of Odin are named after LOL, the popular abbreviation for laugh out loud. This is exactly what we did when we saw them in action in the video below. Joining the Finnish vigilantes, the Loldiers of Odin promised to protect them while dancing around them to happy nursery rhyme tunes. If they were momentarily left behind, they quickly hurried along: “Run, they’re unsafe without us!”
“Our favourite colours are pink, orange, blue and green, but we like many white things too, just like our friends over there: snow, white collar workers, anemones, great white sharks, egg whites, A4 print paper (other sizes are cool, too), dugongs and vanilla ice cream. We like all colours!” one of them explained.
