News from Iceland

In today's Iceland Review is a story that in this relatively sleepy, but magical country, is typical of small town news. Two lovers caught doing what they do in someone's truck (any port in a storm). It's always good to start the day with a chuckle or two, especially at someone else's expense. Here it is.

Lovers Left Red-faced
A local man from Selfoss on a quiet evening stroll was surprised to find a truck belonging to a fellow local lit-up and parked in an isolated area. When the owner arrived to turn off the lights, he was surprised to find a pair of lovers in the seat of the vehicle making love, who in the heat of the moment hit the light switch by accident.

Upon getting caught, they escaped in different directions sheltered by the night as they got dressed.
However, the owner of the truck was happy to discover the truck started at first go and that the lights had not drained the battery, reports. 

Aaahh, young love.


  1. LOL Meatloaf's hit song, "Makin' Love by the Dashboard Light" comes to mind and memories of misspent youth. (blush)

  2. That story made me laugh too. Their stories are often about such small things. Our news is all full of negative stories when actually most people are living simple, ordinary lives...I'm sure all the "bad news" has a negative effect on morale.

  3. I can't think of too many better uses for a truck. More leg room and all that. And now spring has officially begun.

  4. Reminds me of the law suit in Dk several years ago where a woman said she could view a couple coupulating on the the beach from her window. She wanted her beach desigdaded "non nudist" The judge ruled that there were not nudist or nudist in beaches, however, intimate relationships should occur at least ----- km from
    occupied homes.

    As I read the verdict I could not help but chuckel: "put your binonulars away.!

  5. Kay, my first "automotive experience" was in a '64 Ford Galaxy.

    Irbii, these stories are much better than most of the "news".

    CD, definitely the stuff of spring.

    Nina, when looking out over the beach near one of my cousins' apartment I noticed not all of the sunbathers were wearing bathing suits. I averted my eyes, eventually.

  6. Can't imagine escaping into the night in Iceland. Especially naked. Buuurrrr!

  7. You're still not popping up on my blogroll like you should. Says your last post was 35 days ago. I wish I knew why.

  8. Mr.C, yeah, a lot of things tend to disappear in the cold.

    CD, I wonder why, too. I use your blogroll for some good news and entertainment.

    busana, you are only a link to clothing. Is that it?

  9. Been there, done that. But not in someone else's car. ;)
