Many may need a map for this one. I got a laugh knowing the lay of the land somewhat.
The hare and the tortoise
The hare and the tortoise were having a rematch. This time, they decided to race through Europe, starting with London. The plan was to race to Dover, get the ferry across, and go along the French coast, across Belgium, Germany, and head north through Denmark.
The hare figured that his fur would keep him warm, so he decided to keep going north through Scandinavia, assuming it'd get too cold for the tortoise who would give up.
The tortoise had everything he needed stored in his shell, so he was prepared for the cold since the shell was his home.
They eventually get to Sweden, and the hare is struggling. He doesn't want to risk falling asleep this time, so he decides to hitch hike in a lorry. The lorry is headed to the ferry port towards St Petersburg.
The next day on the ferry, the Hare receives a text message from the tortoise saying he's won, and asking where the hare is. Confused as they still have the rest of Europe to cover, the hare asks for proof. The tortoise replies back with a picture of himself at Harparanda with the caption: "see? I'm at the Finnish line!"
