Pick up this news article from my local paper. It's not in English so I'm proving you with a rough translation.

Cinemaviewers were considerably surprised around 17:30 today when the Moomin elves apeared on the big screen instead of the Terminator, which they were expecting. Only few minutes passed until the mistake had been corrected.

Jón Eiríkur Jóhannson, the manager of Smárabíó cinema says that the Moomin elves had been featured earlier that day in this particular show room before the newest installation of the Terminator was scheduled to air.

Since this cinema uses a digital projector, it only took few moments to correct this mistake. The customers waited patiently in the meantime.

Had they been using a film projector instead, it would have taken the projectionist up to 30-45 minutes to replace the film.

“Let's just hope that this is a good advertisement for the moomins” states Jón Eiríkur.

End article.

The following picture and accompanying title, really cracked me up.


The Moomins have not terminated anyone, according to our sources.

And who said that news reporters didn't have a sense of humor?
Those were my two cents.

I saw these guys when I lived in Japan. I've never seen them anywhere else. Are they pretty famous outside America?

It's a Finish creation. Thus they're pretty well known in Scandinavian countries. Don't know about other places though.

I would laugh.

I have a gun. It's really powerful. Especially against living things.

We got them here in the UK about 10 years ago. That image is from the Japanese animated version so would guess it's pretty big over there as well.

I don't care what anyone says, Moomins are great!
