    Iceland tried to destroy Europe's economy with its banks. Now its trying to finish it off with Mother Nature.

    You ever look at some of the names they give people and things in Iceland and wonder if they made the name up trying to be as impossible to pronounce as they could? LOL, I mean look at the name of that Volcano... I bet they call it Mount Bob or something simple when no foreigners are around, and only call it that name to have some fun at our expense.

    I bet those ice lovers are having a good laugh right now....:lol::lol:

    I know. I'm sure there are several posters here who looked at the title and thought I was randomly typing on the keyboard.

    I went to school with a girl whose mother was from Iceland. Her brother's name was Trygvi. :D

    They're fond of strange names.... ;)

    Yeah, that singer Bjork is from Iceland.... Her real name (amongst fellow Iclanders) is most likely Sally or something....:lol:

    I also think the French are doing the same thing with Snails. I don't think they really eat them, I think its their little joke to play on tourists. :lol:
