Finland, land of Nokia and mobile phones aplenty, seems to have an inappropriate love of text messaging that goes all the way up to the head of the state. Finnish Prime Minister Matti Vanhanen (shown above totally hitting on German Chancellor Angela Merkel), apparently known as "Finland's Sexiest Man," dumped his girlfriend (that he met on the Internet, no less) via text message. Slighted ex-girlfriend Susan Kuronen says "Matti dumped me in a text message, where he said 'that's it.'" Cold blooded, Matti!

In other news, if that guy is the sexiest man in Finland I am totally moving to Finland. Dude could make a killing over there.
