Ah! Very topical.

I live in England, anything Icelandic is very unpopular right now (due to the bank crisis etc).

Will play this around the office, just for a laugh ;-)

So, as always, it seems I managed to find a way NOT to be "à la page"... :)

I'm from england and can safely say that Iceland isn't unpopular. Unless you;re the kind of person who really cares about the news and works in an office listening to it all day.
None of my friends could give a sod about all this bank crisis stuff. If you don't have credit card, it doesn't really matter :)

OK, I'll rephrase, "anything Icelandic is unpopular among certain segments of the population"
