Peruna reminds me of pyra, which is potato in some dialects of polish.

To niezłe skojarzenie,hehe Mi się kojarzy Peruna-Peru. Kraj ziemniaków.

And if we exclaim in pain in Polish, we also say:

Au!

Aua! or

Auć!

and sometimes:

Aj! or

Ajajaj!

(but I think the last two are less common).

So the Finnish exclamation used here is very easy to remember :)

I get why it's not "this potato is hot" but also why can't it count and just clarify after you answer, I was doing so well
