Stop Victim Blaming campaign poster series.
So there’s a restaurant called “Sampo” in the city of Kuopio (Kauppakatu 13; would recommend if you like vendace) that has a theme of using the Savonian dialect in everything. The other, “English” side of the sign simply reads “Reserved”
and this here site would not let me add both pictures of the sign, grrr.
To translate that (first into English, then into understandable Finnish):
"Someone already reserved this table, but we have other good tables as well!"
"Joku jo tämän pöydän ehti varata, mutta onhan meillä muitakin hyviä pöytiä!"
Should also be added that the restaurant serves a drink called “kännikala” (lit. “drunk fish”, meaning a really drunk person). I dared a friend to get the drink, as I don’t like alcohol myself but got curious of the name - turns out it’s a shot with a salted vendace in it.
