Finnish term or phrase: alykkaia mies/ perseen reika
Sorry if it's offensive. Someone keeps calling me one of them and claims he's the other one. If you could tell me what it means.
The two phrases are: Perseen reika and Alykkaia mies (is Alykkaia maybe a name? thanks

English translation:ashhole
Explanation:
'alykkaia mies'
'Mies' just means '(a) man', but there must be a typo in 'alykkaia'. It could be 'älykkäin', that is 'the cleverest'.

'perseen reika'
It is just 'ashhole', surely insulting.

agree  Antti Pyykkönen: Agree with Scott and I would certainly spell it "perseenreikä" since it is a compound noun in Finnish, as well.
