I’d love to see a full size map in this style. I love grayscale and geometric shapes so much.

Actually the letter C doesn’t exist in the Icelandic alphabet, so it is an easy mistake to do ;)

Do a worldmap like this and sell it as a print, Pretty please (big puppy eyes)

First they go bankrupt then they try and burn the place down for the insurance money! Bloody fraudsters *shakes head*

When the claim of money is dropped we turn off the volcano, that’s the deal.
April 20th, 2010 at 3:21 pm
Swedes making puns in English about the Icelandic. Genius :D
April 20th, 2010 at 4:14 pm
There’s no C in Icelandic? What do they call their country then? Oh… home. Makes sense.
April 20th, 2010 at 4:16 pm
@Grétar: so you don’t pay back a few lousy bucks but you have remote control over a volcano? It’s so unfair.

Aaah, that must mean that iceland is the first country that openly admits they use powers like supervillains, hiding in their secret labs underneat volcanoes
April 20th, 2010 at 5:53 pm
Ahaha this made me laugh so hard….I can basicly see the faces sayin …ooooh
April 20th, 2010 at 6:28 pm
@pff: yep, Coldfinger has come out of the volcano alright

@pff: China was first by controlling the weather.

Brilliant. Keep the ash coming – it’s good for the environment :)

A plot by Apple to keep iPads from being brought to the EU.

Seriously, Americans makes such a big deal about snow all over the east coast, yet does not say anything about the volcano except that it has stopped planes from going to Europe. Self-centered douches.

So true, and so funny
April 21st, 2010 at 9:33 am
Lol, as a german I found this joke even funnier: Asche (Ash) is also a slang for Money around here.
April 21st, 2010 at 11:01 am
Well, first they burnt our cash and now they send the ash back.
btw, you know their answer when someone tells them to take some responsibility? “Kiss my ash”…
April 21st, 2010 at 11:53 am
An ironic thing about “Iceland” unloading tons of “ash” on Europe is that on Iceland such a concept as burning trees is expensive since trees grows incredibly slow there and thusly most must be imported.

@Jebox: I thought so, but I didn’t want to look stupid by guessing wrong… So they said ‘this is an island, let’s call it… hmmm… Island’?
And we thought ‘that’s too simple, let’s call it Iceland then’.
April 21st, 2010 at 4:31 pm
Very, very true. What will happen when the neighboring volcano blows in the next several weeks?
April 21st, 2010 at 5:48 pm
Skåne looks like a penis!
April 21st, 2010 at 7:52 pm
It does, but look at Norway…
April 21st, 2010 at 7:53 pm
Btw: this must have been the best gag in a long time. Look at the number of comments!
April 21st, 2010 at 10:47 pm
@Tak: actually in danish its called Island – Is being the danish for ice.
When the vikings first discovered and colonized the two they named the one ICE-land and the other GREEN-land (danish Island and Grønland)
Oldschool vikings wherent that creative with names, we named north america “vinland” (wineland) :P

Ha. It’s funny now that I get it, after reading the comments. Some of the comments on this one are like, mini history/cultural lessons. I feel smarter now. XD
