Hello Lempi! Once again, Finland brings a lovely character into my life. Welcome to Lempi.

Apparently, Lempi is featured in a comic strip:

A postcrossing friend in Finland, Anniina, sends me the postcard below with Lempi on it. She explains:

This humorous and a bit bold comic strip is from a Finnish comic book featuring a woman named Lempi, who can’t decide whether she is good or bad.

In the postcard, the snake asks “Would you like an apple from the tree of Knowledge of Evil, oh Eve?”.

Lempi-granny replies, in Finnglish, “Thanks!”

I enjoy cartoon postcards from other countries, and appreciate the translations! Anniina used one of Finland’s amazing veggie stamps. I just love these things, because you can play with them and make your own characters. Thank you Finland, for Lempi, veggie-stamps, and (of course) Moomins.
