Don’t Ask Nanna: About Ask Guðmundur

Dear Nanna, 

What is the deepest ravine in Iceland? 

– Spelunker 

Dear Spelunker,

The Prime Minister’s approval ratings!

ZING!

– Nanna

 

Dear Nanna, 

I read in the news this week that Inspired by Iceland has launched a human search engine called Ask Guðmundur. How does it feel to have a rival?

FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT,

Dear Travel Junkie,

There are enough stupid questions to go around.

Example:

Donnie probably contacted Guðmundur because he wanted a kind-hearted, friendly Icelander to diligently explain with words and science that “no, not all Icelanders have blue eyes because genetics, haha.”

Donnie probably didn’t contact me because he doesn’t know I exist and if he did he wouldn’t want a snarky Icelander to imply his Twitter account was being haunted by the ghost of Dr. Mengele.

Something I now suspect to be the case.

Best,

Snark Junkie

Dear Nanna, 

What do puffins sound like? 

Thank you, 

Power-Puff

Dear Power Puff,

Puffins are known for their husky and sexually potent baritone voices.
