No More Happy Meals for Iceland

Every cloud has a silver lining, McDonald's loss is Iceland's gain:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/8328807.stm

So anyway, apparently the local owner is going to run the franchise under a local brand name...

May I humbly suggest McRonaldsson?

The McDonalds licencer will change all three McDonalds to Metro.....

Majority of their stuff was imported and when exchange rate doubled overnight and has been so for over a year and they unable to rise prices it will only lead to one thing and that is we are facing closing down on Saturday.

I am not one of them missing them

Marinated seal and Dolphin are delicous and should be offered as snack

If you come to ICE-RIB festival in 2011 you can taste marinated Dolphin, smoked Puffin various fishes, salted Fulmarus glacialis this is just to name a few of old Icelandic traditional food
