That's Something You Don't See Every Day

Yes, she's singing in Finnish and spinning a leek.

I don't know why. Neither does xydexx, from whom I stole it.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah, that was the language! I was always wondering what she had been singing, if anything. :-)

Well, this won't help any, but I at least recognize the character and it's just the sort of stupid, goofy thing she would do. She lives in her own world most of the time. -Frisk

Its also on Leekspin.com too. If you want to know more about the song, there's always Wikipedia's article on it.

This is basically a joke for someone who spends all of their time staring at a computer, made by people who spend all of their time staring at a computer.

When I look at the context of the article, this quote just cracks me up. That's all that can be said about it. ^_^

Yeah, the Leek Spin is right up there with folks who'd listen to the Hamster Dance for hours. The only difference is I don't think that band has been asked to make a remix version of that song, nor do they actually spin leeks. Or something. Don't know. Its still fun to listen to, if I need to get rid of a song running through my head.

I use that to torture my roommates. The funny thing is, it has it's own wikipedia entry, and I still don't know why either.

It's a story about a polka. prudish mom doesn't want her daughter to dance with the hot guy. Guy locks mom in her room and dances with the girl anyway.

Yay folk songs. they're all about sex, eventually.

That's Finnish???

It sounded like nonsense... like scat-singing. It didn't sound like actual *language* to me.

Aha! (from the Wiki article)

"Unlike the rest of the song, these two stanzas have no meaning, consisting mostly of phonetically-inspired gibberish that vary from performance to performance and are usually made up on the spot by the singer (compare scat singing in jazz)."
