Hey, can you explain some of the memes for the foreigners? Anyway, is funny even without that knowledge!

Which ones do you have a problem with?

Let's start with the rapping.

That bit is the Soviet industrial region, where all the working class people were dumped before their jobs evaporated along with the plan economy.

It's our Barking.

What is that bit with the Onion fish? :)

Flasher T said...

The Peipsi rim has a lot of people growing onions, and obviously fishing in the lake. Both of these are being actively sold by the side of the Tartu-Narva road. Can't speak with authority about the onions, but the smoked fish is delicious and cheap.

Great to see and experience "local memes" when traveling somewhere.

Ahem. As always, Antyx really doesn't have too much of knowledge when it comes to Estonian cultural scenes. Well, the thing with rapping is that Rakvere, the 'capital' of that region there, has in Estonian terms a rather notable hip-hop scene. As an example try Def Räädu for instace. As simple as that.

That's alright, Hansken, I'm fine with being one of the ten.

Wow he got Tartu spot-on! Except he forgot to mention that some of the Top Ten are foreigners. Ahem!
