Oh, man. Someone has put a video up on YouTube in which they take a section of the movie Der Untergang and have superimposed Icelandic subtitles on it, all to do with the Icesave debacle. In the video Hitler has a conniption when he finds out that the money he deposited in an Icesave account has been lost.
It’s the most hilarious thing I’ve seen in months.
If I had the foggiest idea how to put subtitles onto YouTube videos I’d translate this just so all my lovely readers could laugh along with me, but alas, I’m completely challenged in that regard. However, the first few are as follows:
SS man: Fuehrer, we need to manufacture more airplanes and tanks
We need more funds to complete production of the exciting Derrick television series
And we need to increase our production of Haribo gummy bears by 50%.
Hitler: No problem, just take it out of Icesave
SS man: Fuehrer … Icesave
Fuhrer, Landsbanki has gone bankrupt and Icesave too
[Hitler removes glasses with trembling fingers, etc…]
I’m still wiping the tears from my eyes.
Awful weather up here on the cube, schools closed in parts of the country, major blizzard in the north etc. although here in Reykjavík it’s basically just windy and cold. It’s currently 0°C here in the capital [32F], sunrise was at 10.35 and sunset due for 3.55 this afternoon.
PS. Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers!
PPS. Thanks also for the feedback on the headlines. Note that I’ve added a new feature in the same sidebar: Quote of the Day. We aim to please.
