Similar Tastes


My former Faroese housemate moved back to the Faroe Islands some time ago and one day she sent me a photos of some weird horse shaped thing made of wires and filled with stones placed in the sea close to the airport. She was basically like "Look at this shit! Why they do that!?" I assume they were inspired by the creepy demon hose at the American airport?

Faroe Islands and Iceland are close friends because they have pretty similar cultures. What they call a fun night out the rest of us call a horror show.

The "rampant" pose has several meanings in traditional heraldry. I wouldn't call any of them creepy.

And if more people accepted pony hugs, the world would know peace.

Blucifer the demon horse greets visitors to Denver in the US. It also killed its creator so it may be haunted.

Meanwhile, America has the Blue Mustang (also known as Blucifer), at the Denver International Airport... Denmark would probably find that creepy too... No idea why.

As a resident of Denver, I sincerely apologize if Blucifer inspired anyone to do anything.

have you seen our Kelpies? (Scotland). They're 30 metres tall - and that's just the heads

"Nykurin"
A legend talks about Nykur (Nix), a scary creature that lives in lakes and often resembles a beautiful horse. It is easily identified by its grey colour and backwards hooves, It lures people close, grabs them and pulls them to the bottom of the lake. Once upon a time, children had gone to play by the lake. Nykur came to them in the shape of a horse and they climbed on its back to play. The smallest boy, who could not get up on Nykur, was frightened and called out to his brother, Niklas: “Brother Nika” (he had not learned to talk yet). Nykur, thinking his name was called, lost its power and disappeared, and the children were saved. Nykur loses all its power when called by name.

Welcome Horse
Welcome Horse
Welcome Horse

He greets across the Nordic nation
The thoroughbred of sin
He got the vista application
That you just sent in

It needs evaluation
So let the games begin
A heinous crime, a show of force
A murder would be nice of course...

Denver, Colorado, USA was also a fan of this. We call him Blucifer.

I finally found pictures of this "horse". That is not a horse. It is a kelpie escaped from Scotland, and it's coming to eat your children.
