What's pentu? Also, lämmin* ^^

A pentu is a kitten, puppy, or cub.

Probably the most ironic song title ever, given his murder.

Whose murder? And what is ase?

Onni on lämmin ase = Happiness is a warm gun

It's a song by the Beatles. And the murder refers to the shooting of John Lennon in 1980.

I'm afraid a warm sauna would be an abomination for any self respecting Finn. A HOT sauna, on the other hand...

Lämmin (warm) is a normal way to refer to a sauna when it's ready. Even though the actual temperature might be closer to hot.
