Iceland is a spiritual country, full of mythical history and natural phenomena, so it’s no surprise that they have been having trouble with a few elves lately. Actually scrap that, yes it is. Elves ain’t even fucking real so how they’ve made it into a news report I do not know.

The latest news from the country’s capital Reykjavik tells us that the area has been forced to take head of strong signs from the elfin community and uncover an enchanted rock that was accidentally buried whilst highway workers cleared away debris from an earlier landslide. The mythical creatures were said to be livid.
Amazingly, this isn’t the first time Iceland has agreed to work around or change building plans, so as not to upset its mythical friends. The country has a history of obeying the elfin rules. In 1971, another similar situation caused the elves to react in a similar way.
One of the construction workers, Sveinn Zophoniasson, told local newspaper The Morgunbladid Daily that the elves would make it clear they were unhappy through many different mediums. There were floods, machinery fails and even injuries to workers and a local reporter, after the landslide was cleared.
Yeah, that’s all fair enough and it must be pretty annoying when things go wrong during construction work. But who the fuck said that it was to do with elves? Are they mental?
They even have a law in place to protect Iceland’s elfin heritage. Madness. Since the angry elfin “signs”, the Iceland Road Administration have made the decision to unearth the rock and have since cleaned it up. Hopefully that will keep their imaginary friends happy for the time being.
