You may be used to read a lot of jokes here and there. But take a look at the title of this post again. Did you read it? Well, this is NOT a joke!
I was talking with a girl on Twitter and she commented about Eldar Ambaressë stats and how she was surprised Iceland wasn’t there. I asked why was that and she showed me this:
A toy house on the grass? NO…a elf house! Built by Icelandic people to elves! And this is serious!
Apparently, Iceland folklore is really taken seriously there and people believe elves are living everywhere. They build houses like that, they don’t build roads nor buildings on certain sites where huldufólk (lit. hidden people) is believed to live and…get ready for that….here it comes…..they (in 1982) went to a NATO base in Keflavík to look for “elves who might be endangered by American Phantom jets and AWACS reconnaissance planes.” Man…that is serious deep shh****….stuff!
And that’s not all, boys and girls! There is even a Icelandic Elf School where you can learn everything you need to know about huldufólk and the 13 different species of elves. The Headmaster Magnús Skarphéðinsson offers a full curriculum and certificate programs for visitors.
See? I told you this post WAS NOT a joke!
