Finland, Finland, Finland...

(title alludes to Monty Python)

A local newspaper reports of Jukka Ammondt (whose name it unfortunately renders in Hebrew letters as JUKA AMOND, instead of the correct YUKA AMONT), a wacky Finnish professor of literature, who has released a CD with songs by Elvis Presley, all translated and sung in Latin. For this outlandish endeavor he won much reknown and possibly even money, and was actually lauded by the pope himself (though I can't see why...)

But industrious Ammondt did not rest on his laurels! He's about to release a CD of Presley's music, this time translated and sung in ancient Sumerian!

I tell you, some people have all the fun...
