A captain and a mate are in a boat somewhere in the North sea. The sky is filled with a burst of meteors which many Finns thought were emergency flares. The mate shouts with delight that he made a lucky wish just before a bit of meteor makes a great hole in their boat. The captain yells, as he shoots off an emergency flare that is totally lost in the meteor shower, that the wish malfunctioned and that the mate should try again.
