Iceland raises Bardarbunga volcano alert to orange

I think those are the kind of parties that Berlusconi would go to in Iceland.

Jebb, Bárðarbunga is roaring! Say goodbye to cowabunga and Bunga bunga!!

Bárðarbunga?  That's what I scream whenever I drunkenly jump into a half frozen lake.

Weird.

If Icelanders ancestors could survive the North Atlantic Sea rowing and sailing longships, they'll likely handle a grumpy old volcano with few problems.

Yes, but it takes all the fun away from watching news reporters stumble all over it.

...migrating northeastwards. . While strongest events were located in the northern cluster, ...

Much as I try, I can't stop reading this in Björk's voice.

If any cute Icelandic babes need a place to evacuate to, give me a call.  I'll find some space.

I never even tried to pronounce the..the...volcano that began with an E.

You know, that one.

Actually I'm pretty sure you are going to do it wrong. Especially since most non-native speakers don't know that ð is not d.

It's a th sound. Like Thor and the and so on.

Seems a recent article about the pronunciation has been greened.

So this is the end, you blew up again today
Had to book a plane and fly away
You're hot like the sun, rock ash for everyone
And pyroclastic smoke inhaled

Your plume rises over the sea
Bet you're gonna delay me
Hope I can negotiate down, down, down my cancellation fee
Now won't cha, Bardarbunga

It's the voiced "th" like in "then", not the voiceless one like in "thin". These are near minimal pairs for the voiced/voiceless contrast (actual minimal pairs if you have the pen/pin merger).
