Hey Nanna,

What should I get my girlfriend for her birthday? She loves Iceland so I want it to be “Iceland themed.”

Hey Boyfriend Brownie Points,

How about the heart of a puffin in a vial on a chain? She could wear it around her neck as a symbol of your own heart nestled against her’s. Maybe learn how to play Little Talks on the ukulele and serenade her. Cover yourself in glow-in-the-dark body paint, turn off the lights and do a sensual dance for her inspired by the northern lights.

Am I being helpful yet? No?


Hey Mrs. Hogan,

I know,  it’s pretty sad about the whales. Maybe you or Hulk could wrestle with these issues and show these whalers what’s what.


Hey Nanna,

I hear there’s a pick up artist coming to Iceland, will Icelanders petition to block him from coming like we did here in Oz with Julien Blanc?


Oi Oi Oi!

Hey Oi Oi Oi!

Yes, it’s true, another PUA has announced a workshop in Iceland – because it worked out so well for the last guy. As I cannot predict the future I can’t say whether Icelanders will petition to block him from holding his hate speech bonanza but a passive-aggressive bitch can hope.
