Icelandic Parliament Member Saves Giant Boulder He Claims Is Home To Elves

index.phpHere in the United States, politics rarely places much importance on the well-being of non-human living creatures, so the Icelandic parliament’s concern for elves is quite touching. The Iceland Review writes:

MP for the Independence Party Árni Johnsen arranged for the relocation of a 30-ton boulder, which he believes is home to three generations of elves, from southwest Iceland to his home Höfðaból in the Westman Islands today.

Arni first encountered the elves’ dwelling when he was in a serious car accident in January 2010. His car overturned and landed beside the boulder.

“I had Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir, a specialist in the affairs of elves, come look at the boulder with me,” recollected Árni. “It was incredible, she had never met three generations of elves in the same boulder before…She said an elderly couple lives on the upper floor but a young couple with three children on the lower floor.”

  1. Huh…. Part of me wishes this is their equivalent to the Onion. Another part of me wonders if there are entire nations out there that believe in all sorts of fantasy. 🙂 It’s interesting to look at.

    • “Another part of me wonders if there are entire nations out there that believe in all sorts of fantasy.”

      In the United States, Christianity is more widely believed in and it is just as much of a fantasy.

      • In regards to the USA, again, Part of me wishes this is their equivalent to the Onion 😉

  2. Iceland’s crazy politicians are actually kind of charming compared to some of ours.

      Better to be charmingly eccentric than insanely greedy and vicious.

        that would make a cool video game.

          Have you seen Troll Hunter? If not, check it out, it’s awesome.

            i saw it! i preferred ‘Monsters’ or ‘Attack the Block’ (for a monster movie of 2011), but it was cool. i had high(er) hopes since i enjoyed ‘fritt vilt’ 1 and 2.

            I thought Monsters was pretty cool. Didn’t it have a tiny budget? Yet it was awesome.

            proving that hollywood 99% of the time, has it all wrong.
            yeah really tiny – 10-15k i think.

      elves are kinda scary, if pissed off.

  3. Being from the Faroe Islands, Icelands closest neighbour I can confirm that this kind of stuff goes on there, it does so as well here, just not on a political level. 

  4. These are what John Keel referred to as ‘Ultra-terrestrials’ in his book, The Haunted Earth. Quite a fascinating read.

     Nice that they can save the elves but not their own economy.

  6. 26% of Icelanders believe in elves. Holy crap. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Icelandic_Elf_School

    are they the kind of elves that helped the shoemaker or the kind in Lord of the Rings?
