Item details

You can’t really curse in Icelandic without resorting to biblical vocabulary. It’s very ingrained in the language. The Icelandic word “helvítis” means something like “hell’s,” “of hell” or damn.” Almost every Icelander over 5 years of age knows it. The word can be used something like “helvítis rok alltaf hreint!” meaning “damn storm all the time!” or “fari það til helvítis” meaning “may that go to hell”. It can also be used in a positive way: “helvítis snillingur,” meaning “you fucking genius” (see, we even use “helvítis” for “fucking!”)
