This is possibly funny. Just found online. Can anyone translate?

The language is Finnish, which I have no back ground in, but I did a
little research and have come up with the following possible translation.

The "title" TYOVAENOPISTO perhaps means some kind of vocational training
college. That general idea certainly fits with the context. OPISTO
is an institute, academy, training college, school, etc. TYOVAEN is
a noun fragment that seems to be associated with work, labor, etc.

I am more confident about my translation of the class assignment on
the chalkboard: PIIRRA SARJAKAVA OMASTA ELAMASTA --- "draw a comic
strip of your own life".

It's often hard to tell what will be considered funny in one culture
as opposed to another. I imagine that the contrast between the normal, everyday lives of the students could be a bit funny. I hope this
helps.

It looks like Spidey is facing Mysterio in one panel, and Electro in another.

Okay, I am not finnish, but this is definitely funny.
Because they want you to think THIS is where the Spider-Man comics are from. Get it?
