Reykjavik (f-A-k-e. P.)
“Call my loans bitches, I’ve got volcanoes you don’t even know about!”
Europe has spent the week in travel chaos as a giant Icelandic cloud of ash has cast a pall over 22 countries grounding up to 17,000 flights a day. The Eyjafjallajokull volcano started to erupt just over a week ago. European media has speculated that the normally dormant volcano was brought to life by smoldering Icelandic outrage over Europe calling it’s loans, leading to the current deep recession. Icelandic officials were reached for comment, but no one understood a word they said. It is hoped that sister volcano Katla won’t fall prey to the same anger. If it does it could start a domino effect of volcanic eruptions eventually burying Europe under the same dark cloud that now hangs over the Icelandic economy.
