It’s also about Iceland. Oh Iceland! Pre-Iceland Volcano fiasco, this is what I knew about Iceland: It’s Capital is Reykjavik, its official language is Icelandic and it is where Sigur Ros is from. Now something inside my gut told me that there was more to Iceland than there 3 measly facts so I Googled “famous things in Iceland/ Best things to do in Iceland”. This was the #2 best thing to do:
Ride Viking ponies through lava fields.
I’m sure it would be awesome and all, buuuut that is the second best thing to do in Iceland? Ride ponies and shit? Iceland’s 15 minutes of fame has been forever f’d up by a Volcano and all they have to offer as salvation is ponies. I’m sure if you were to take a world poll called “What do you know about Iceland” the top result would be “They have a stupid Volcanos that puff ash which therefore makes my life a living hell and I hate them because they suck”.
People. We should be blaming that cow Mother Nature, not the sweet people of Iceland. But mad respect for Icelandic and all but what kind of name is Eyjafjallajokull for a Volcano? Did they put their national cat or whatever on a computer keyboard and let is mash around until it came up with a name? If that’s the case, here is my Volcano’s name:
Has a nice ring to it. Actually this game is fun. Let’s all be 14 again and bash on our keyboards for our Volcano’s name. Then post it on our Facebook and Twitter pages and no one except us will know what we are talking about and we’ll all have a big inside joke uniting us all woo hoo BEST FRIENDS FOR EVER!
But seriously, do it. I did.
