Word of the Day

smokkfiskur (n)

“squid”

Most of the words I’ve posted here have been compounds made of very poetic word combinations. Here to change this trend is the very humorous word for squid, which happens to be split into “smokk” and “fiskur.” “Fiskur” resembles nearly what it looks like: “fish.”But what is smokk?

Well, it just so happens to be the word for “condom.”

Thats right: Condom Fish. The squid is the condom fish.

Thank you Iceland, for changing the way we see creatures that were already considered strange to begin with.
