The Estrangement of the Children of Illuvatar Continues...

The folks in Iceland seem to be having ongoing Elf zoning issues. And problems:

"My next-door neighbor is an elf woman," explained retired museum director Hildur Hakonardottir. "She lives in a cliff in a rock in my garden."

In Kopavogur in 1996, someone tried to flatten a hill to build a cemetery, but bulldozers malfunctioned and television cameras trained on the site failed to work.

"We're going to see whether we can't reach an understanding with the elves," the construction project supervisor told a local newspaper at the time. "Elf communicators" were brought in and after some time work successfully resumed.

[Icelandic accent on]

You son of a bitch. You moved the rocks, but you left the elves, didn't you? You son of a bitch, you left the elves and you only moved the garden rocks. You only moved the rocks. Why? Why?

[Icelandic accent off]

I think the good folks of Iceland need to, um, get out of the Arctic Circle a bit more often. Perhaps working as Icelandic Honey Salesmen is a good idea after all.

Yips! to Ith.

Looks like someone has been reading his Silmarillion.
