Draumur fornleifafrćđingsins

er ađ finna kúk. Einn slíkur, sem enn var mjúkur en frekar rýr, fannst um daginn í Óđinsvéum. Hann mun vera um 8-900 ára gamall og ţví jafnvel varđveittur og Landnámabók. Saur ţessi er mikil og góđ heimild um danska sögu ef marka má áhuga fjölmiđla.

Excrementum Othenarum

Blađamenn eru seigir ađ ţefa og grafa upp skít, og einn fremsti rannsóknarblađamađur Politiken labbađi einnmitt framhjá holunni í hćgđum sínum um leiđ og kúkurinn fannst in situ. Kúkurinn lyktađi enn. Blađamađurinn, sem ekki kallar allt ömmu sína ţegar ađ kúkum kemur, spurđi strax fornleifafrćđingana, hvernig ţeir vissu ađ ţetta vćri ekki manni. Vildu fornleifafrćđingarnir ekki útiloka ţađ, en töldu ađ hann vćri of breiđur til ađ hafa komiđ úr mennskum rassi. Ţeir vita greinilega ekki hve stór sum rassgötin geta veriđ í blađamannastétt. Sjá hér

Fullvissuđu fornleifafrćđingarnir í Óđinsvéum blađamanninn um ađ kúkurinn yrđi rannsakađur betur en međ lyktarskyninu einu, til ađ ganga úr skugga um hvađ hundurinn hefđi étiđ. Mann grunar ađ heilmargar ađrar upplýsingar gćtu komiđ úr ţessu stykki. Hvar hundurinn liggur grafinn fylgir ekki sögunni.

H. C. Andersen félagiđ í Óđinsvéum telur öruggt ađ hér sé fundiđ nýtt ćvintýri meistarans. Leikmannafélag kaţólskra í Danmörku telur ađ ţarna séu komin jarđteikn, helgir dómar heilags Knúts. Engar upplýsingar eru ţó um slíkt í análum. Grćnlenski róninn i Vestergade er hins vegar fullviss um ađ ţetta sé tútílak tíkar hans sem fór á lóđarí um daginn. Hún er grafhundur, Canis archaeologorum.

Gott er ađ gamall saur leysist betur upp á Íslandi en í Danaveldi, ţví annars fylltust allar geymslur Ţjóđminjasafnsins og varđveita ţyrfti stykkin í gámum. Hugsiđ ykkur ástandiđ.


Fađirin at Trabant er deyđur

Werner Lang

, fađir Trabantsins er allur, ef trúa má fćreyska netmiđlinum Portal. Werner Lang dó sl. mánudag á heimili sínu í Zwickau, 91 ađ aldri. Ţessi tíđindi las ég ţegar ég var ađ leita ađ fréttum um hvernig Krataprinsessan danska, Thorning Smith, ćtlar ađ svíkja Fćreyjar í makríldeilunni.

Ţessi eđalalţýđuvagn var á tímabilinu 1957 til 1991 framleiddur í yfir 3 milljónum eintökum í Zwickau og slatti ţeirra endađi ćvi sína á Íslandi.

Ekki átti ég Trabant, en ók um tíma Wartburg skutbíl, kommísaraútgáfu međ lituđum rúđum og sérlega góđu gerviefni í klćđningu og miklu af krómi. Móđir mér gaf mér loks ţennan bíl sinn, vel notađan. Hann ţjónađi lengi vel sem bifreiđ fornleifarannsóknanna í Ţjórsárdal og bar nafniđ Brúnó, sem vísađi til litar bílsins, sem var karamellubrúnn.

Ruben í Trabant

Sonur minn var mjög veikur fyrir Trabant ţegar viđ fórum nýveriđ á DDR-safniđ í Berlín, en merkilegri ţótti honum ţó flokksgćđinga-Volvoinn sem ţar var líka til sýnis. Nokkrum dögum síđar heyrđi ég af umhverfisvćnum ljósbláum Volvo Steingríms J. og sá ţá ađ sćnskt öryggi og velferđ tryllir verkalýđsforingja og byltingarseggi meira en alţýđudrossíur.

Trabant er og verđur hluti af sögu Íslands, ţótt hér hafi Fornleifur fariđ hćttulega nćrri nútímanum.

Mikilvćg fyrispurn um lýđveldiđ

1944

Í byrjun árs 1944, nánar tiltekiđ 14. janúar, skrifađi ungur íslenskur námsmađur viđ Columbia háskólann í New York bréf međ fyrirspurn til danska sendiráđsins í Washington, sem ţá gegndi hlutverki ríkisstjórnar Dana ţar vestra. Námsmađurinn íslenski, sem var í framhaldsnámi í ţjóđréttarfrćđi, bjó á besta stađ á Manhattan, nánar tiltekiđ í Stuyvesandt Building, 258 Riverside Drive og notađi hann bréfsefni Columbia University ţegar hann sendi danska sendiráđinu bréf sitt.

Námsmađurinn var enginn annar en Hans Georg Andersen (1919-1994) og erindi hans var ađ leitast eftir upplýsingum um afstöđu Dana til Íslands og Sambandsslitanna. Hann skrifađi: I would appreciate it very much if you could inform me as to whether the Danish Government has made any statement regarding the Icelandic plans for the termination of said treaty [samninginn frá 1918] as well as the plans for the establishment of a republic in Iceland.

Ţessari fyrirspurn svarađi C.A.C. Brun, sem hafđi veriđ sendiráđsritari í Reykjavík 1936 til 1941 , ţegar hann ákvađ ađ ganga til liđs viđ Henrik von Kauffmanns sendiherra í Washington. Brun var "ljósmóđir" eđa öllu heldur fćđingalćknir íslenska lýđveldisins, og vita ţađ ef til vill fćstir, ţví íslenskir sagnfrćđingar sem hafa ritađ um sambandsslitin hafa alls ekki veriđ í réttum skjalasöfnum.

Allar ţćr skođanir og fyrirgreiđsla Bandaríkjanna, sem ţeim hefur veriđ ţökkuđ fyrir, voru ađ öllu leyti komnar frá C.A.C. Brun. State Department, utanríkismálaráđuneyti BNA, sótti ráđin varđandi Ísland til hans. Brun skrifađi öđrum sendiráđum í hinum frjálsa heimi og setti reglurnar varđandi Ísland. Hann skildi fyllilega óskir meirihluta Íslendinga og hafđi góđa ţekkingu á Íslendingum. Jón Krabbe, sem í ćvisögu sinn tók heiđurinn af ţví ađ afstađa Kristjáns tíunda varđ ekki neikvćđari en hún hljómađi áriđ 1944, átti engan heiđur skilinn. Hann gerđi ekki neitt til ađ tala máli Íslands. C.A.C. Brun ćtti allan heiđurinn af ţví ađ blíđka konung. Brun hafđi skrifađ ritgerđ og tilmćli um sambandsslitin sem konungi hafđi borist eftir krókaleiđum.

Ég er ađ hefja ritun bókar um C.A.C. Brun međ Kristjáni Sveinssyni sagnfrćđingi og ćtla ađ leyfa mönnum í tilefni hátíđarinnar ađ lesa ţađ sem Brun ritađi Hans G. Andersen, sem síđar varđ sjálfur mikilvćgur diplómat fyrir Ísland og okkar fremsti sérfrćđingur í ţjóđrétti og landhelgis- og fisveiđiréttarmálum.

Svariđ, sem Hans fékk, var lekiđ beint til íslenska sendiherrans í Washington, Thors Thors, góđvinar Bruns, og hann sendi skilabođin til bróđur síns á Íslandi, Ólafs Thors. Ţar međ vissu frelsisţenkjandi Íslendingar "óformlega" um afstöđu dönsku stjórnarinnar undir stjórn Kaufmanns sendiherra í Washington, sem sá um löglega stjórn Danska konungsveldisins međan landiđ var undir hćl nasista. Afstađa manna í sendiráđinu í Washington var alls ekki eins tvístígandi og tvöföld rođinu eins og í danska sendiráđinu í Lundúnum, ţar sem stjórnendur voru andvígir öllu ţví sem C.A.C. Brun lagđi til um Íslandsmál.

Ekki líkađi öllum í Danmörku ţađ sem fór fram, en ţeir vissu lítiđ meira en íslenskir sagnfrćđingar, hvađ var ađ gerjast í Vesturheimi milli stjórnar BNA og C.A.C. Bruns hvađ varđar sambandslitin.

Flokkurinn Venstre í Danmörku dreifđi síđar (apríl 1944) í innbyrđis og leynilegri greinargerđ eftir ţingmanninn Vangsgaard til sinna flokksfélaga í Rigsdagen, ţar sem ţessa skođun á blendingsfjölskyldunni Thors (Apríl 1944) er ađ finna: Naar Island har travlt nu, er det altsaa ikke Forbundsloven, der er i Vejen, men Řnsket om at indfřre en Republik og afskedige Kongen, hvilket Islćndinge selv erkender er en Revolution, og hvis Foregangsmand er den tidligere Udenrigsminister Olafur Thors, Sřn af den brave Dansker Thor Jensen, der paa Island har gjort en eventyrlig řkonomisk Karriere, og dennes islandsk fřdte Hustru. Som den islandske Socialdemokrats Redaktřr [ritstjóri Alţýđublađsins] sagde til mig i 1930 ved Tusindaarsfesten, Břrnene af dansk-islandske Ćgteskaber er de mest danskfjendtlige. Det er ligesom vort paa disse Omrĺder noget svage Blod ved denne Omplantning faar en ukendt Styrke, men en Styrke der desvćrre vender sig imod os. De islandske Socialdemokrater har forřvrigt som Landets mindst nationalistiske Parti staaet os Danske nćrmest. 

Manni  finnst eins og sagan endurtaki sig stundum. Hverjir eru ţađ sem einmitt nú vilja ólmir selja landiđ undir ESB og gefa upp sjálfstćđi sitt?

Mr. H. G. Andersen

New York 25, New York                                                                                                  Confidential

 

Dear Sir:

                             In reply to your letter of January fourteenth concerning the attitude of Denmark towards the Icelandic plans for unilateral abrogation towards the treaty between Denmark and Iceland, I beg to inform you that the Danish Prime Minister on May 31, 1941, addressed a note to the Icelandic Charge d'Affaires in Copenhagen in regard to the resolutions of the Althing of May 17, 1941, in which he expressed his regret that Iceland had found it necessary at the present moment, (i.e. when Denmark was under German military occupation) to notify its views on this question of legal status involving both countries, but declared that Denmark would be prepared, as soon as conditions render it possible, to negotiate with Iceland on the basis of the provisions of the Union Act and with full consideration of the wishes of the Icelandic People.

                             When the Government of Iceland in September, 1942, notified the government in Copenhagen of a contemplated amendment to the constitution making it possible to establish a republic on short notice,  The Danish Prime Minister replied in a note of September 30, 1942, that when the agreement of 1918 was made it was anticipated that a desire for revision of the Union or even for its complete abrogation might arise in either of the two people. Provision for such a contingencies were made in the Union Act in full accord between Denmark and Iceland. The Danish Government was now as before of the opinion that it would be desireable and most dignified in every respect if the two brother nations in accordance with the good traditions of the Scandinavian countries, as in 1918 entered into negotiations in regard to the future arrangement in order to reach a result in complete mutual understanding. The Danish Government had taken it for granted after the exchange of views in 1941 that Iceland would refrain from taking any unilateral steps which would be prejudicial to the present basis for negotiations in respect to the future arrangement and considered the information now received regarding the proposed amendment to the constitution as a confirmation that it was not going to be disappointed in the its expectations of an understanding procedure on the part of Iceland.

                             Since August 29, 1943, there has been no Danish Government in existence. The Danish Legations are taking care of Danish interests abroad and on their own authority as the duly authorized representatives of Denmark, but it is not likely in case the contemplated unilateral abolition of the Union is actually carried out that they will take steps which would prejudice the position of the future Danish Government established after the liberation of Denmark.

                             It will be up to the future Danish Government to decide the attitude of Denmark. Personally I feel convinced that the government, although people in Denmark might have preferred that the liquidation of the  Union had taken place through negotiation, will not be inclined to enter into a discussion of the legal aspects of the matter but that it will take a benevolent and understanding attitude in accordance with Denmark's traditional policy: the questions of this kind should be in accordance with the wish of the majority of the population. Especially in regard to Iceland no Danish Government notwithstanding the provisions of Art. 18 of the Union Act would be interested in a continuation of the Dano-Icelandic Union after 1943 unless this wish is shared by the majority of the people of Iceland.

                             What the Danish people will consider important, as far as I can judge, is that the separation between Denmark and Iceland take place without ill feeling and that old ties of friendship and culture which exist in spite of all mutual misunderstandings in the past are not broken

Yours very truly,

To-Ya and his Ice Family

Eismenschen 3

In the fall of 1936 a young Icelandic physician, Eyţór Gunnarsson, was studying and working at the ear-clinic of the University Hospital in Munich, Germany. One afternoon, when he was enjoying himself with friends at the Oktoberfest, he came across an interesting show in a small circus tent. The act was called Eismenschen, or Ice People, and the artists claimed they originated from Iceland in the far north. They were albinos and their show was called Sun-Play (Sonnenspiele; "original isländische Volksspiele").  

Doctor Gunnarsson bought a ticket to watch the show and he was not amused to say the least. The actors, some of which were not albinos, pretending to be Icelanders, presented an sketch which was supposed to be a depiction of a Reykjavík garden in bloom. Flowers and trees of paper sprung out while the fake "Icelanders" entertained with singing and tricks from the far north. Possibly, some fish-beating was going on too.

The patriotism of doctor Gunnarsson took some severe blows at the Oktoberfest in Munich, when he witnessed albinos with bushy hair, reddish eyes and pretending to be Icelanders in a rather primitive manner. He immediately contacted the Danish consulate in Munich to file a complaint against these imposters, which he mistakenly called Eismänschen or ice midgets. He attached his complaint with the above picture of the troupe of albinos. 

The Danish Consulate immediately contacted to the German police, who investigated the act, but found no reason to intervene. The leader of the troupe argued that his parents were Icelandic. But under the notorious interrogating methods of the German Police he eventually admitted that this was not an ethnological act, that it had very little to do with Iceland and was first and foremost an artistic presentation and expression.  

The leader of the circus-troupe Eismenschen finally admitted he was Austrian by birth and had no ties to Iceland whatsoever. The complaint of the Icelandic doctor was then forwarded with a short report to the Foreign Ministry in Copenhagen, where the officiasl found the whole matter rather amusing. The ministry notified the Chargé d'Affaires in Munich that no further actions would be taken against the Ice People.

To-Ya and his Ice family and Tom Jack (Karl Breu)

TEY0010003053

The Eismenschen troupe, which was not to the liking of doctor Gunnarsson in 1936, was the remnants of a quite famous circus troupe called To-Ya und die Eismenschen, which travelled widely around Europe in the 1920 and 30ies. In Great Britain the troupe was called To-Ya and his Ice Family. The troupe was founded by an albino artist by the name of Karl Breu. Breu was born in the Moravian town of Dubnany (now the Czech Republic) in 1884 (or 1876 according to other sources). Dubnany was then a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Karl Breu's parents, who worked in the glass and crystal industry, died when Karl was young and he was brought up by his mother's family in the town of Lenora (Germ. Eleonorenhain).

Eiskönig

At a very early age Karl Breu was fascinated by the circus and got a job in one as a clown. But very quickly he turned to magic acts, influenced and fascinated by Harry Houdini. Houdini was Jewish (originally Erik Weisz) and Breu an albino, so there was not so much difference. Breu very quickly adapted the stage name The Ice King (Eiskönig), with reference to his looks. However, when he engaged in escape acts, untying knots and getting out of chains and straitjackets, he became known as Tom Jack.  As Tom Jack he travelled all over Europe and in London he became famous for being thrown from the Tower Bridge all chained up inside a barrel. Tom Jack (Karl Breu) nearly met his maker in the Thames that day. At the peak of his career he was famous for his great white fuzzy hair.

Tom Jack's (Breuer's) wife was also an albino and called herself Wally Paradise. They had two children together. Together with the children and different albinos, as well as several other artists wearing white wigs, they were the Ice King and his family.

Just before WWII Tom Jack retired and purchased a plot of land in Lenora with the intention of retiring there with his family. Their time there was brief however as following WWII, and despite serving the Allied forces as an interpreter, Tom Jack and his family were the victims of displacement. He belonged to the German minority. After the war they settled in Beinstein, Germany and carried their circus activities on for some time there. Breu died in Beinstein in 1953. He is still the most famous son of the town of Lenora in the Czech Republic and is remembered for a foundation he sponsored for orphan children.

Here are some snapshots from the career of the "Eismenschen" troupe:

The Ice family in the fantastic collection of Jaap Best

The printing firm of Adolph Friedländer (1851-1904) in Hamburg  specialized in the designing and printing of posters for the amusement industry and especially circuses. In 1935 this firm, which was then run by the two sons of Adolph Friedländer, printed some small posters with the acts of the To-Ya and his Ice family troupe. This was only shortly before the Nazi expropriated this firm as they gradually did all Jewish businesses. The firm always produced high quality lithographs and had many designers and artists who contributed to this interesting and colourful printing activity. Everyone who wanted to be something in the circus arena, had a poster created by the Adolph Friedländer firm in Hamburg.

A great collection of the A. Friedländer's poster and prints can today be found and studied in the collection of the Dutch Circus-collector Jaap Best. The collection is marvellously presented on this Dutch website. Here I found the 1935 promotion posters for To Ya and his Ice family, and information that cast light on the circus troupe which doctor Gunnarsson resented so much.

No information can be found on whether the Ice Family troupe kept penguins. Most likely they were added to the poster to attract gullible audience (Friedländer 1935). The Jaap Best Collection, Teylers Museum.

Today this valuable collection is kept at the world famous Teylers-museum in the city of Haarlem. Here I also discovered two hilarious posters with the Icelandic master of the ancient Icelandic wrestling called glíma. Jóhannes Jósefsson, who later engaged in the Hotel-business in Iceland was an Icelandic Glíma-master in his younger days. in 1909 he was obviously trying to promote the ancient glíma as a self-defence art. Posters for Adolph Friedländer could nothing but help in that effort.

Meira um Ísfólkiđ

TEY0010003053

Margir muna kannski eftir Ísfólkinu, sem ég hef skrifađ um hér á blogginu. Ţađ var fjölleikahúshópur sem ferđađist um Ţýskaland og önnur lönd um miđjan 4. áratug síđustu aldar, og sögđust félagar í honum vera frá Íslandi. Ţeir kölluđu sig Eismenchen von Islands hohem Norden. Síđla hausts áriđ 1936 móđgađi ţessi hópur Eyţór Gunnarsson lćkni međ uppátćkjum sínu. Hann fór á eina sýningu ţeirra af forvitni til ađ sjá hvers kyns var og kvartađi síđar í viđeigandi ráđuneyti í Danmörku. Ţar höfđu menn dálítiđ gaman af öllu saman.

Eins og margir vita, er hćgt ađ stunda mikla fornleifafrćđi á netinu, án ţess ađ fá leyfi hjá Minjastofnun, Ţjóđminjasafni eđa Sigmundi Davíđ allsráđanda yfir öllu gömlu á Íslandi. Ég hef nýlega í algjöru leyfisleysi grafiđ upp ýmsar upplýsingar í Hollandi og annars stađar um ţennan skringilega hóp í München.

To-Ya und die Eismenschen og Tom Jack (Karl Breu)

fe132beb77d6

Sýningarhópurinn Eismenschen, sem Eyţór Gunnarsson sá í München, voru líklega leifarnar af sýningarhópnum To-Ya und die Eismenschen, som hafđi lagt Evrópu ađ fótum sér á 2. - 4. áratug 20. aldar. Á Englandi var hópurinn ţekktur undir nafninu To-Ya and his Ice Family. Flokkurinn var stofnađur af albínóa, Karl Breu ađ nafni, sem fćddist 10. janúar 1884 (sumir telja 1876) í borginni Dubnany í Bćheimi, sem ţá tilheyrđi austuríska keisaradćminu, en tilheyrir í dag Tékklandi. Foreldrar Karls, sem voru glergerđarfólk eins og margir í Bćheimi, dóu ţegar hann var ungur og var hann ţá tekinn í fóstur af fjölskyldu móđur sinnar í bćnum Lenora.

Eiskönig

Karl Breu heillađist ungur af sirkus og lífinu ţar og réđst hann ađ einum slíkum sem trúđur en fór fljótlega ađ stunda ađrar listir og stćldi sjónhverfingarmeistarann Harry Houdini. Houdini var gyđingur (hét upphaflega Erik Weisz) og Breu albínói svo ţađ kom út á eitt. Tók Breu sér listamannsnafniđ Ískonungurinn (Eiskönig eđa The Ice King), en notađi einnig nafniđ Tom Jack í ađrar listir eins ţegar hann leysti sig úr hnútum og hlekkjum líkt og Houdini. Tom Jack ferđađist víđa um Evrópu og í Lundúnum varđ hann m.a. frćgur er hann lét kasta sér í Thamesá frá Tower Bridge hlekkjuđum innan í tunnu. Sagan segir ađ ţar hafi hurđ skolliđ nćrri hćlum. Á hátindi frćgđar sinnar var hann einnig ţekktur fyrir sitt mikla, hvíta og hrokkna hár.

Tom Jack giftist albínóakonu sem kallađi sig Wally Paradise. Ţau og börn ţeirra tvö mynduđu flokkinn To-Ya und die Eismenschen ásamt öđrum albínóum og ýmsum öđrum sem brugđu sér í gervi hvítingja. Karl Breu lést í Beinstein í Ţýskalandi áriđ 1953, en hans er enn minnst í Lenora í Tékklandi ţar sem hann stofnađi sjóđ fyrir fátćk börn.

Einstök plaköt í safni Jaap Best

Fyrirtćkiđ Adolph Friedländers (1851-1904) í Hamborg sérhćfđi sig í hönnun og prentun plakata fyrir skemmtistađi og sér í lagi sirkusa. Áriđ 1935 prentađi fyrirtćki hans, sem ţá var rekiđ af sonum hans tveimur, myndir fyrir sirkushóp gođsögunnar Tom Jacks, Eismenschen. Ţetta var rétt áđur en nasistar tóku fyrirtćkiđ af fjölskyldunni Friedländer sem voru gyđingar. Fyritćkiđ A. Friedländers var ţekkt fyrir prentun mjög vandađra litógrafía. Allir sem vildu vera eitthvađ í ţeim heimi, hvort sem ţađ var í Ţýskalandi eđa utan, létu prenta vönduđ litógrafíuplaköt hjá Adoph Friedländer í Hamborg

Mikiđ safn slíkra plakata og prentmiđa er ađ finna í safni Jaap Best, hollensk sirkusáhugmanns  sem safnađi sirkusminjum. Ţađ var einmitt í ţví safni (sjá hér) ađ ég fann myndirnar af To Ya og Ísfjölskyldu hans. Í dag er safniđ varđveitt í Teylers-safninu í Haarlem í Hollandi. Síđast ţegar ég var ţar, skođađi ég safniđ en uppgötvađi ţá ekki frístundaíslendingana Tom Jack og Ísfólkiđ. En ţar fann ég ţessi skemmtilegu plaköt frá 1909 međ Jóhannesi Jósefssyni sem síđar var kenndur var viđ Hótel Borg. Áriđ 1909 var hann greinilega glímukóngur heimsins og barđist frćkilega í fornmannabúningi og međ fálkamerkiđ á brjóstinu viđ illmenni gráa fyrir járnum. Ţarna sýnist mér nú jafnvel ađ komiđ sé frumsniđiđ fyrir hinn eina sanna Superman.

Sú saga, sem sögđ hefur veriđ hér, er vitanlega brot af sögu fínna og viđkvćmra ţjóđernistilfinninga á Íslandi.

Ţađ kemst enginn upp međ ţađ ađ leika íslenska albínóa nema ađ vera kćrđir til yfirvaldsins. Ţýskir listamenn sem halda ađ ţeir geti leyft sér ađ gera hvađ sem er, jafnvel sprautumála minnispunkta á landiđ okkar hreina, ćttu bara ađ fara ađ vara sig...

Brünhilde hjá Leynifélaginu hitti Adolf

9057
 

Ţetta hljómar eins og eitthvađ plott úr 3. ríkinu, en er samt meinasaklaust og frćđandi. Útvarpskonan Brynhildur, međ tilgerđalega rödd sem börn virđast skilja, fer í fornleifaleik viđ fornleifafrćđinginn Adolf, sem reynir af bestu getu ađ tala til krakkanna. Ţetta er Leynifélagiđ á RÚV. Myndin er af Adolf.

Hlustiđ á ţáttinn og lćriđ meira um fornleifafrćđi, um ađ keyra hjólbörur í rigningu, ađ leika sér í sandkassa og ađ finna "alls konar dót" í gröfum. Í ţćttinu finnur Adolf nagla međ ró og finnur fram "stóra dýriđ" úr óáföllnu silfri. Afar fróđlegur leikţáttur, en ćtli Adolf hafi fengiđ leyfi til ađ grafa fyrir Leynifélagiđ? Brynja Björk verđur örugglega ekki hress međ ţessa skýrslu.

Auf wiedersehen, krakkar.
