A Soviet army is marching through a Finnish forest when a general hears a voice from over a hill shout: “one Finnish soldier is better than 10 Soviet soldiers!”
The general promptly send 10 soldiers to root out the voice, there is gunfire, and then silence.
After a few minutes, the voice shouts defiantly: “One Finnish soldier is better than a hundred Soviet soldiers!!”
The general sends a hundred men to remove the nuisance, there is a racket of gunfire, and then quiet.
The voice crys out loudly once more: “One Finnish soldier is better than a thousand Soviet soldiers!!”
Enraged, the general sends a thousand men charging over the hilltop to shut up that voice once and for all, an epic battle rages, and then quiet. After a few minutes, a gravely wounded Soviet crawls back over the hill and crys:
“It’s a trap! There are two Finnish soldiers!!”
