For far-oxidental viewers, a translation of this image is “Grandpa, what did you do before broadband?”.

Commented on Spudro Spädre

To all who’ve commented so far with valued support and advice –
It’s not easy to write an article like this while having no Finnish connections whatsoever, geographic nor linguistic, but I like to think I’m getting there, and will amend the article as new, irrefutable facts come to light. Thanks for the interest!

I’d also like to address a few criticisms thusly:

1) I’m referring to Spudro Spädre and Gorboral Spudro as one entity, with the Gorporal as the thumbnail image.
In my defence, this is because I wouldn’t deem either meme as especially article-worthy or significant on their own, so this entry is meant to document the history of both. A few mix-ups and naming errors in the main article are being corrected presently.

2) SS/GS was born in Kuvalauta and not Krautchan.
SS first appeared in Kuvalauta, GS first appeared in Krautchan, and I’ve the screenshots to back that up.

3) Dismissal of my translation of “Spudro Spädre” and Burdo Bordo.
I casually direct you to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWJxo510JL4 which was made as a parody/exaggeration of the literal meaning and use of Spudro Spädre

Apologies if I come over as condescending or harsh, I just want people to know I HAVE in fact put research hours into this. Thanks again for the pointers!
