Not so funny but interesting pics, the Postal Services back in my native Finland published a series of postage stamps featuring police vehicles from the past.
For perceptive readers, Finland is officially a bilingual country, which is the reason why the text on the one side of the police vehicles say Poliisi
(police in Finnish), and the other side Polis
(police in Swedish). The same reason why it says Suomi Finland
on stamps; Suomi
is the name of Finland in Finnish, the name in Swedish being as in English Finland
Images are featuring the actual postage stamps. The 1 lk / kl
printed on them is again due two languages: they are 1 class stamps (normal letter next day delivery), lk
being an abbreviation from the Finnish word luokka
(class) and kl
from Swedish word klass
, meaning the same.
