The "Finnish have no word for please" reminds me of this several-years-old ad for an Israeli McDonalds menu item, the McShoarma:
no please, but lots of snow
Apparently it's a self-deprecating gag aimed towards the brusque Israeli fashion of speaking.
The McShoarma actually looks quite tasty, but then again, McD is known to screw up pickles. Maybe the McDonalds version wouldn't taste good, but a turkey pita with pickles and tahini? Yum
