Okay, I think Alden might get the last one... but it might be hopeless for someone not well-acquainted with the Finnish cultural “elite” and slang terms.

Sometimes it takes a while to figure out what's going on, but when you finally figure it out....

Here's another one with questionable taste:

I didn't know Beetle Bailey had made it to Finland; the character whose eyes we don't see looks like a clear homage to him.

Yes, you could say we've heard of it. It's been on Helsingin Sanomat's comics page since 1956.

The characters in the Fingerpori strip are, of course, "Killer" Diller, Beetle Bailey and Zero (Viki, Masi & Hönö). Sarge (Kessu) is mentioned but not seen.

Pertti Jarla (the guy drawing the Fingerpori strip) does these homage/crossover stunts occasionally. He has used especially the Phantom several times.

Getting this requires understanding of colloquial idioms... :lol:
