The tilberi is a creature from Icelandic folklore. They were made by women who used magic in order to create them. To make a tilberi you will need a man´s rib covered in holy ground the ground from a scematery will do, rapp the bone in a grey material called flóki and keep it on your bare breast. The next step involves going to church and spitting the blood of christ on the bone this has to be done three times after that the bone will grow and change into a tilberi. A tilberi is a long creature witch has the shape of a snake and two mouths on each end. A tilberis purpose is to steal milk from other farms and take it back to its mother who is the women who made it. A tilberi will use both mouths to drink the cow dry and then crawl back to its mother and throw up the milk into a bucket. The tilberi would often say to the mother mama i´m full of milk and the mother would respond by saying then throw it up my son. A tilberi needs to drink the blood from its mother in order to survive and that's why the women would cut of a part of the skin and let the tilberi suck on the wound, that wound would later turn into a nipple. There is one way to know if your drinking tilberi milk you have to make a sign of a cross over the milk and if it turns into foam then you have been drinking tilberi milk.

Fun Facts.

One way to know if you are eating tilberi butter is to carve an old magic symbol known as Smjörhnútur in the butter and if the butter breaks into many pieces or turns into foam and disappears then your eating tilberi butter.

Snakkur is also another word for tilberi and other creatures created by magic.

When a mother of a Tilberi Gets to old she will not be able to withstand the tilberi when he´s feeding and can then tell him to go up to the mouintins and pick all the sheep droppings. The tilberi will then go and do so and will work as hard as it can so it can get to his mother as quick as possible but he will work to hard and explode before he gets back. There have also been stories of men who found a mans rip near a pile of sheep droppings when walking in the mountains.

A tilberi moves incredibly fast over and down hills.

      Well currentScience303 us Icelanders are not really into Björks music much she is more listened to in other countries. We don't really detest her but many of us are not into her style and music at all. she is not played much on Icelandic radio but sometimes they play something by the sugarcubes (sykurmolarnir) the band Björk was in before going solo.

      Interesting, I've Never heard of this! I live for research. btw: in my town of Greensboro, N.C. {U.S.A.}, we have an Icelander by the name of Prarthna Ashutoshmunidottir, who owns two SUBWAY {fast-food restaurant} Franchises. {both on Battleground Ave.}. // There are Very Few celebrities of Finnish-descent in prominent U.S.A. spotlight {actor Matt Damon, the late fusion musician Jaco Pastorius}..., however, oddly? enough, the Only celebrity of Icelandic-descent I know of is that 'Bjork'. Do you mind me asking: How is "Bjork" seen in currently Iceland? Do people generally respect her?, don't really care?, or detest her?

      I'm not positive, but this may be to most ridiculous Hub I have ever read. I found it's absurdity hilarious! That picture is the clincher, it looks like a close-up of some coyote turds from my back yard! I can't stop giggling about how ridiculous this story is!

      Loved It, I was entertained !
