French in Iceland on weekend

Now isn’t that interesting? The French defeated Iceland on the weekend in handball – that’s the Icelandic headline today.

Er … how did the French get there? I’ve written to Eygló Arnarsdóttir about it and await a reply. Apparently the volcano finished erupting some days ago. There’s also a new Icelandic joke doing the rounds:

Britain: Iceland are you crazy?!? Why did you send us volcanic ash ? Our airspace has shut down.

Iceland: What ? That’s what you asked for isn’t it ?

Britain: NO! We said cash! Cash you dyslexic idiot. CASH!

Iceland: Woooops…

Eyglo explains that there is no “C” in the Icelandic language.

STOP PRESS 20.04.10

Eygló replies: “Dear James, the French arrived by plane before the eruption began, actually. Bestu kveðjur / Best wishes.”
