Electronic mail

I found this delightful card in my mail today.  The translation was kindly provided by the sender, fortunately, because I don't speak a word of Finnish and the Google translator doesn't seem to have come to grips with it at all.

"I have heard that mail goes by electricity nowadays, email."
"Hmm.  By electricity?"
"I hope it doesn't give me a shock."

I think what makes it especially funny to me is that I can almost imagine my grandmother having that conversation.
