Why is mr. Valo considered as a joke/humoristic candidate in this article? Of course any of these "joke candidates" could be considered original research without proper citations but Valo has probably been the most successful popular artist (or any artist whatsoever) hailing from Finland ever so I don't find it unbelievable that many would genuinely see him as one of the most influential finns of all time. At least he might be even more well known than mr. Mannerheim (winner of the race) internationally! JJohannes (talk) 23:39, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
