Join in.

Think of a pun or other wordplay on a book, film, TV show, song or similar but based around (today) the Proms or classical music. There is a new theme every day.

So,

Herrar mínir,
kannski hefur einhver sagt ykkur að þeir hafi séð
Fossegrimmen í búningsklefanum/sturtusvæðinu.
Ef þú rekst á nakinn aðlaðandi ungan mann sem
sest niður og spilar á fiðlu, þá er það líklega bara einn af vinnufærslunni.
Hann getur beðið þig um að stela kjöti handa honum.
Engan veginn verða við þessari beiðni.
Til að vera á öruggri hliðinni skaltu ganga rólega
aftur á bak við móttökuna og hylja bæði eyru svo að tónlistin heilli þig ekki.
Hafðu líka vinstra augað lokað.
Stóra Steingerður er sjöunda dóttir sjöundu dóttur og mun fara örugglega með innrásarherinn.

Víglundur Auðbjörn Jörgensson

Gentlemen,
perhaps someone has told you they have seen
a Fossegrimmen in the changing rooms/shower area.
If you come across a naked attractive young man sitting down
and playing the fiddle,
it is probably just one of the work experience dudes.
He may ask you to steal some meat for him.
On no account comply with this request.
To be on the safe side walk calmly backwards to reception,
covering both ears so the music does not enchant you.
Keep your left eye closed also.
Big Steingerður is the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter
and will deal safely with the intruder.

Herrar mínir,
kannski hefur þú misráðið Roðskórinn þinn?
Stóra Hrólfdís vikurstúlkan fann par á bak
við ferðamannasalinn snemma í morgun.
Þeir voru við hliðina á Upphluta dömu.
Ef þú vilt safna þessum hlutum skaltu bara
mæta í móttökuna og eiga næði spjall við stóru Oddfríði.
Hún sér um þau í sérstaka skápnum sínum ásamt
mörgum öðrum fatnaði,
hljóðfærum og Mastermind VHS spólum.
Kannski þú viljir frekar fjarlægja blettina úr Roðskórnum
þínum áður en þú notar þá aftur opinberlega?
Biddu bara stóra O um lánveitingu af Cillit Bang ™
úðanum hennar og gúmmílæðinu.

Nökkvi Oddkell Fjölvarsson

Gentlemen,
perhaps you have mislaid your Roðskór ?
Big Hrólfdís the pumice girl found a pair
behind the tourist advice kiosk early this morning.
They were next to a lady's Upphlutur.
If you would like to collect these items
just pop along to reception and have a discreet chat with big Oddfríður.
She is looking after them in her special cupboard,
along with many other garments, musical instruments
and Mastermind VHS tapes.
Maybe you would prefer to remove the stains
from your Roðskór before wearing them again in public ?
Just ask big O for a lend of her Cillit Bang™ spray
and the chamois leather.
