Phonetic: Eye – jaff – jalla – jok – kul ???
I hate it when something happens in Iceland or Wales, simply because of the mind-bending names. I’m sure everyone (whose not Icelandic or Welsh) has the same problem as demonstrated by this currently erupting volcano called ‘Eyjafjallajokull’, people say in their conversations “the volcano in Iceland“. It’s only in print media will you see the copied and pasted name ‘Eyjafjallajokull’ (as of course is the case here!)
You gotta hand it to the Welsh though. When it comes to ridiculous names, the Welsh have it.
“Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch”. No I’m not making it up. there really is a town in Wales called Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. [This post is likely to play hell with the layout!]
I wonder if anyone has ever written about it on a book??
“Where are you from” said the US immigration official, who was getting more and more agitated by the second, hand heading towards his tazer belt, his face contorting from the indecision within him evident from his eyes which darted back and forth from my ‘Muslim-looking’ head dress and my white skin.
“Oh”, I replied, talking through clenched teeth so as to prevent myself biting tongue, when in two seconds time, 30,000 volts of energy were going to start pulsing through my body.
“I’m from llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch”
Imagine if you had a friend in Wales who lived in “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch” You wouldn’t have much enthusiasm to write them many letters would you? How frustrating it would be to write that name of an envelope. You’d probably have to calculate how much space to give each letter to make it fit in the span of the envenope, and draw a grid of boxes or have a kind of ingenious home crafted appendage labeled: “press here to continue reading”, or perhaps there are specially made envelopes for postal to “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch”?
Anyway, if your British, you’ll be quite familiar with the absurdly named “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch”, and you’ll know they have a website…
LOL. Anyway, enough of the cheap laughs at vulnerable targets… Lets have reasoned scorn at a deserved target.
“Eyjafjallajokull “, or “the volcano in Iceland” is erupting, probably spewing out loads of CO2. Like the severe Forest fires in the US’s west coast, Greece and Australia in recent times, this and other volcanos and underwater thermal vents will probably receive no attention from the “CO2 = pollution” brigade.
Back in the UK, including “Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch”, the stupid British are flapping all the harder about the election on May 6th. These little fools read some meaning into the fact they can vote for their choice of poison, and self-censor themselves from the truth that once they drop that ballot paper in the box, they will be jointly responsible for the upcoming deaths of untold numbers of people across the world subject to the pro-Zionist British government, the armed forces and its constitutional head, the kween of the united kingdom, kween elizardbeth II.
