Does that mean that you work drunk? Also, goddamn is it a requirement to be drop-dead gorgeous to apply?

grotesqueFetus31 karma

  1. Your people skills increase a lot when you have a couple of brewskies in your system, so it really helps.
  2. Thank you! You are just too kind.

itsjustnes13 karma

grotesqueFetus3 karma

Logi is just not my type, sorry.

grotesqueFetus28 karma

No comment

sparknozzle2 karma

atikin_20 karma

  1. How are you managing to work and also reply to questions at the same time? Do you take it in turns...what's the strategy?

  2. What was the inspiration for starting this thread?

grotesqueFetus30 karma

  1. We answer the questions in the cash register so every once in a while when we put in an order or print out a check, we answer a question.

  2. Just for shits n gigs

GaiusOrangeJulius15 karma

Is it true that you never run out of ice in Iceland?

grotesqueFetus32 karma

Yes it's true, the glaciers give us infinite ice.

heyitsmykull12 karma

  1. is it really true that "Iceland is covered in green, and Greenland is covered in ice"? reference:

  2. on the real: i'm going to iceland in november, what's the one thing i must see/do?

grotesqueFetus26 karma

  1. Yes it's true, it was a viking trap. A very successful one.
  2. Reykjavik Downtown Poundtown during the weekend, bound to get intense.

NotChristina11 karma

I hear there's a lot of drinking in Iceland -- how social is it? Is it easy to get home if you've had too much?

Are tourists viewed well?

I've always wanted to visit and have been considering planning a trip within in the next year or so.

grotesqueFetus18 karma

We fucking love tourists, specially when we're partying with them. Getting home just depends on where you're staying, in smaller towns it's a piece of cake but if you're in the Reykjavik area it might be a bit harder.

StormyJMaster11 karma

How many alpacas can a tiger eat in ten minutes?

grotesqueFetus22 karma

I think two

Bat_turd9 karma

What is Iceland like? Good points?

grotesqueFetus22 karma

The night life is amazing during the weekends, it's extremely expensive and our girls aren't really that slutty.

AngryJawa36 karma

That sounds terrible

grotesqueFetus12 karma

i know rite?

AngryJawa4 karma

How expensive we talking by the way? Is it like crazy expensive? Also is it easy to find work their as a tourist/visitor?

grotesqueFetus8 karma

Too fucking expensive. Finding a job as a tourist is probably easy if you're familiar with the tourist industry.

Bubbah_gump_shriemp3 karma

What if canadians come bearing maple syrup gifts? I know chicks. Chicks dig that.

grotesqueFetus6 karma

Well give us the syrup already, eyh?

RacksDiciprine7 karma

Best and worst tip you ever received?

grotesqueFetus63 karma

Other waiter here... I once got a Christian pamphlet from a Jehova's witness who tried to smear his religious views all over my perfect and chiseled body

grotesqueFetus24 karma

Best tip was 13000ISK on a 14000ISK bill and worst tip was when a Japanese photographer gave me a calendar, gg.

RacksDiciprine9 karma

Haha thanks. Its like. "Hey buddy you forgot something. Doesn't seem like you can afford to give these away." Is what idda said. Sure would..

grotesqueFetus11 karma

Nah he was so happy, that i kinda felt for the fucker

Captain_Giggles6 karma

At first I was confused. I thought you were talking about EVE. :( I have a disappointment.

grotesqueFetus15 karma

EVE is the shit, but 13000ISK wont get you very far there.

HuhDude2 karma

A calender is a great tip. He gave you the gift of never forgetting what day it is. For a year.

grotesqueFetus8 karma

I still use it, 3 years later.

ItzOptimus3 karma

So not so shitty then right?

grotesqueFetus9 karma

Keeps giving me the wrong days, might be broken or something.

TurtleDigester7 karma

Would you rather fight one Icelandic horse sized arctic fox or 100 arctic fox sized Icelandic horses?

grotesqueFetus5 karma

Option C: One Icelandic size fetus!

bundle056 karma

If someone delivers a pizza, what percentage of the bill would you tip?

grotesqueFetus10 karma

After a decade of searching and perfecting we finally came to a conclusion. DAX and d:fi green/blue and you'll be getting pussy left and right.

bootscootinboogiee5 karma

What do the people over there think about Americans?? Like what's the stereotype?

grotesqueFetus41 karma

SRD_Grafter5 karma

SangfroidSlackJester5 karma

What are you intoxicated on?

grotesqueFetus14 karma

Oh you know .. just the useehh. Drugs, sex and rock'n'roll!

Natural_Mutant4 karma

How difficult is it to obtain marijuana up there? What's the quality like?

grotesqueFetus12 karma

Not difficult at all if you're in the capital, might be a bit tricky when you live in a small town like we do, but then again it's easy as fuck if you know the right people.

hellothere0074 karma

Do you know if there are lots of Canadian travelers?

grotesqueFetus27 karma

ScottMcPay3 karma

Is Sigur Ros required listening in primary school?

grotesqueFetus8 karma

No! But it definately should be if we want our future to be full of icelandic hipsters.

moopersoup3 karma

I am not convinced that you are properly intoxicated, can you provide further proof?

grotesqueFetus5 karma

How would you recommend we do so?

moopersoup10 karma

Yesterday there was a thread about drunks jumping several stories and surviving because the alcohol kept them loose. I would accept a video of such as proof.

moopersoup5 karma

That is maybe an extreme solution.

moopersoup1 karma

aaahahaha, I hope he found a quite place to sit down.

grotesqueFetus1 karma

hahahahahahhahahah yes.

NorbitGorbit3 karma

since iceland is small, do you eventually meet all the well-known celebrities?

grotesqueFetus14 karma

If you live in Reykjavik you see them once a week. We had the cast of game of throwns eating here 2 years ago, which was pretty cool(Jon Snow was small).

HuhDude1 karma

Aww. Small-Jon Snow sounds adorable.

grotesqueFetus5 karma

He really was a cute little bugger

grotesqueFetus5 karma

MsQueued3 karma

Filipino? I'm surprised! Are there a lot of Filipinos there to warrant you to know a smattering of our language?

grotesqueFetus1 karma

I have only met one filipino, he was decent.

KastaBortAvUppenbar2 karma

How's it like speaking Icelandic while drunk? Must come out like nonsense?

AngryJawa1 karma

vypergts1 karma

How is the puffin at your restaurant?

grotesqueFetus5 karma

We dont serve shit

MsQueued1 karma

What do fermented sharks, sheep testicles and sheep's head taste like?

grotesqueFetus6 karma

The sheep testicles and sheep's head are pretty decent, but the shark is fucking disgusting and people should feel bad for eating it.

bdubrava1 karma

Have you ever peed in the blue lagoon because you know you can get away with it undetected?

grotesqueFetus4 karma

Cant even count.

loafers_glory1 karma

A friend of mine, bit of a bullshit artist, who used to live in Iceland told me once that when they were trying to establish more of a police force in the isolated areas, they just headed out from Reykjavik and stopped off in each little village, waited for the bars to close and for a massive brawl to spill out onto the street. They waited for the last man standing, put a baton and a badge in his hand, and said "you're the cop now". So, he said, Iceland is now full of massive cops (or was, back in the day).

Is there ANY truth to any of that?

grotesqueFetus7 karma

While it's a great story, it has to be to most stupid made up shit I've ever heard. Sorry bro :(

Beef-Chief1 karma

Where the fuck are my eggs?

grotesqueFetus1 karma

Beef-Chief1 karma

[deleted]1 karma


grotesqueFetus4 karma

Nope not really.

escherbach1 karma

Why do you kill whales?

grotesqueFetus15 karma

Why not? They're delicious as fuck.

chewy_nipsahoy6 karma

I can confirm this, even as an American. I've been to Iceland three times already and have had the whale every time. It's delicious as fuck. Can't wait to eat more when I'm back there in November.

grotesqueFetus8 karma

Well done son, i love you.
