I thought at first it was a misprint! Then I checked again. No there it was boldly printed, wherever I looked. It was something like those random alphabets that we type in MS Word while testing the keyboard or when we are just plain bored! Okay, no jokes on a serious issue!
But seriously, what else did you expect the volcano to do with a name like that! Smile with pride??? Who names these things? No wonder the volcano exploded! It's probably the only way it can express its emotions regarding the screwed up name that is assigned to it- Eyjafjallajökull??? Jeez, how do you even pronounce it? eye-jaf..eyaf...whatever!

One of my Dad's colleagues once had a similar eruption. His parents had named him Selvachezhiyan Anbarasu Arulselvan Ramakrishnan (hehehehee!well the name was something like that! I hope I didn't miss anything). He called himself Selvy for the 'cool' effect. But all documentation measures required him to fill out his mile long name with each piece intact and that irked him! Finally, he lost it the day the Census people came around! I wasn't there so I don't know what happened but onlookers say that those people ran away vowing never to return and swore that they would never include his name in the registry! (or something like that!). Years of torture finally resulted in his eruption and voila, I think we have the solution to all eruptions! No long, difficult to pronounce, tongue-twisterish names anymore and this should be a legal notice. The world shall be a happier place from now on!
P.S.- I have a little cousin whom I fondly named Chota Smiley because he smiles all the time. he's like a few months old or something! He has now been officially name Justin Mathai something something (try as I may, I cant recall the remaining parts of his endlessly stretching name!) I can predict another eruption in about 10- 20 years or so! Maybe I should rename him to Chota Explosion since the smile is going to disappear the day he figures out his name! ;)
