back to article Icelandic town demands vulva museum

The good burghers of the Icelandic town of Mosfellsbær are unimpressed with local council plans to build a wild animal museum, and instead favour opening a vulva attraction. The campaigning Residents' Movement reckons a vulvular lipsmacker is a better way celebrating Mosfellsbær's "25th anniversary"* than the council's …

    25 years old?

    WIkipedia thinks it was established in 1604

      Yeah, that's more like it.

        It's only 25 years since Mosfellsbær received a municipal charter and became a town in its own regard. Having said that, it's pretty much submerged in all the meh suburbs and industry of the Greater Reykjavik area.

      So, assuming that said anniversary is next year, they are using a base 202 number system.

      Are they all centipedes or what?

      It was a village until 25 years ago when it was officially recognized as town.

    Muff is duff

    I'd say a more popular attraction would be the heads of famous/infamous celebrities and politicians whereby you can throw rotten fruit and veg at them. Preferably the real heads and not fake wax types.

    Or perhaps they could make and sell 'useable' versions of the vulvae in the form of fleshlights so you can try them out for yourself.

      You have a point, though. The gift shop would be interesting. Pen holders, pencil sharpeners, wine bottle stoppers...

    You did read the bit about it displaying ANIMAL vulvas didn't you?? Not sure that's something I'D pay to see!

    And why do you need a museum for them? Last time I checked they hadn't died out or in any danger of extinction??

      Because some people like older vulvas, of course

      A rather small collection

      According to the infallible (or, at least, plausible) Wikipedia, there are no indigenous Icelandic animals, except the Arctic Fox (Polar Bears and bats blown off course are sporadic visitors). The others are domestic animals ferried over by the Vikings: sheep, cows, goats*, horses, mink, rabbits and dogs plus their commensals: mice and rats. Why anyone would wish to collect together an assemblage of their vulvas is left as an exercise for the reader.

      * Insert inevitable goatse joke here.

        If only the arctic fox is indigenous then what the fuck did they eat?

        Don't forget the marine life, eg various kinds of whales, seals etc Plus there's got to be some bird life.

          Re: A rather small collection

          Birds (I assume you mean the feathered variety) don't have vulae. Only mammals have them, and then only placental mammals.

    I should think that detail ought to have been a tip-off to the fact that the proposal was satire (as, indeed, Kristín Pálsdóttir, secretary for the Mosfellsbær Residents' Movement, admits).
