Tell me: is Perkele really what Urban Dictionary tells me?
Most likely the most powerful curseword ever created by mankind. Cannot be translated without loss. Versatile word that can be used alone or repeated indefinitely.
afaik it was originally a name for the Finnish pagan god "Ukko" (God of weather and thunder) but when the Swedes came and brought christianity here they saw it as anti-christian and changed the meaning to "the devil" and since then it's been a curse word.
But it is true that it can't really be translated without losing some of the original meaning, and that it is a very versatile word these days.
I'm drunk as shit since I can't get high because I have a drug test coming up so I might have written this a bit unclearly))
