SCFAI

“The security-council of the Feminist Association of Iceland has accused the directors and management of Valitor (Visa Iceland) of working for and taking part in the distribution of pornography.” [1] I must admit that I am taken aback — the Feminist Association of Iceland has a security-council! I cannot deny that I should be most delighted if it transpires that they also have an underground base with a monorail and a central control-room with a large screen showing a world-map. Suffice to say, a couple of sour-faced old trouts sitting around in the study-room of some dreary building at the University of Reykjavik plotting ways to sound more important doesn’t excite my romantic sensibilities quite so much.

They actually work for somebody called Stark Staring Oddfinger.
Interpol has been chasing him for years.
He has an assistant called Blojob.

"Öryggisráð" probably sounds less cloak and dagger and more grimly bureaucratic in Icelandic, more along the lines of "safety committee".

Be that as it may, you're almost certainly wasting your time looking for a Blojob at the Öryggisráð.

Perhaps, but it is the same word as used for the security-council of the United Nations (Öryggisráð Sameinuðu þjóðanna).

As one who occasionally posts on Iceland and watches it like a hawk, I can confirm this. Icelanders take to any new movement in its most extreme form, e.g. Bjork and modern music.

Let's just hope they don't master the technology necessary to equip sharks with laser beams.
