“Have you heard the one about…?”


The ‘fall-out’ from Eyjafjallajökull’s eruption has spawned its own brand off-beat humor.


Here are quips compiled by Telegraph.co.uk:



“America has declared war on Iceland. Apparently, the U.S. is accusing Iceland of harboring a ‘weapon of ash eruption.’”


“It was the last wish of the Icelandic economy that its ashes be spread over Europe.”


“Iceland goes bankrupt, then sets itself on fire. This has insurance scam written all over it.”


“Iceland, we wanted your cash, not your ash.”


“’Waiter, there's volcanic ash in my soup.’ ‘I know, it's a no-fly zone.’”


“British film director Richard Curtis is working on a new romantic comedy about people stuck in an airport who fall in love. The working title is ‘Lava Actually.’”
