Iceland Warns Swimmers

Most Icelanders take a daily dip in one of the large indoor heated swimming pools dotted around the small country.

But after years of complaints pool authorities have been forced to put up illustrated posters with rules - two of which seem particularly pressing.

Rule #1: 'Don't dry your scrotum or your behind with the communal hairdryer in the swimming pool or the gym.'

Rule #2: 'Bald older gentlemen with hairy torsos must either bring their own blow-dryers or just buy a more absorbent towel.'

Pool patrons are urged not to confront a dogged elderly dangler on their own.
