Politician In Iceland Moves Elf Family's Boulder Home Onto His Estate After Saving His Life In Car Accident

May 17, 2012


Icelandic Parliament member Árni Johnsen nearly died in a car accident in 2010 but was saved by a family of elves living in a 30-ton boulder nearby. So, to thank them, he's agreed to move their boulder onto his property where they can live their lives in luxury and not off the side of a highway.

I had Ragnhildur Jónsdóttir, a specialist in the affairs of elves from Álfagarðurinn in Hellisgerði, Hafnarfjörður, to come look at the boulder with me [...] She said it was incredible, that she had never met three generations of elves in the same boulder before [...]

She said an elderly couple lives on the upper floor but a young couple with three children on the lower floor [...] But they asked whether the boulder could stand on grass. I said that was no problem but asked why they wanted grass. 'It's because they want to have sheep.'

Admittedly, I was gonna call bullshit on this one from the start, but with names like "Álfagarðurinn in Hellisgerði, Hafnarfjörður" -- I dunno, that sounds like a place where elves might actually exist. And if they do... "We should go there, catch them in a sack, then beat it with a stick till they teach us earth-magic?" Bingo.

Thanks to Ulri, who already has a family of elves living in the backyard but doesn't like to disturb them or they'll break in and steal things out of the kitchen cabinets.

    The truth is - the boulder is a downed alien mothership, the tiny aliens that crash-landed on earth made the decision to split into 5 groups, each going in a different direction, besides the fifth that was comprised of engineers. The aliens who live there now are the descendants of the few engineers that stayed behind to maintain the ship, they've almost died out.

    They just couldn't find a flux capacitor.

    I think he was using drugs, that caused him to crash his car and then he imagined the elves helping him.

    He was lucky to encounter nice elves. Last month I was mugged by the Keebler elves while looking for a nice spot for bird watching.

    Not sure if GW is just screwing with us or if this is actually from a crazy news story he found


  • The link in the article is circular. Could you fix to direct to the original story?

    You can't just refer to your own article. Where is the source?

  • Nate Adams

    Is there a link to an original story somewhere?

    There's always been a lot of believers here in iceland... But today that's mostly older people or homeschooled kids or something.

    I don't get it.

    People are weird... They get obsessed... and then make their families do it for generations. They're like Catholics!
