The Raisin at the Hot Dog's End

#5 Icelandic 101: Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo

Episode Summary

Icelandic is just another Nordic language (like Swedish, Norwegian and Danish), but instead of moving into the modern era like its neighbors—with ABBA, minimalist design, open-faced sandwiches and all that—Iceland has a crazy death-grip on its ancient tongue. Sir Jo-Jo and Lady Lydz give us the lowdown on what it’s like living in their personal, linguistic renaissance fair: masochistic grammar, survival phrases, the world's most entertaining phonebook and much more.
