From article in Reykjavík Grapevine about the book:
We’ve now reached the infamously dark and twisted humour of comic artist Hugleikur Dagsson. Where to start? First off, it really is insane that this humorous genius hasn’t been cancelled by an angry mob yet. Truly mindboggling. But I think the answer is simple—the man is so talented that even though his humour is as depraved and dark as it gets, he still manages to entertain, shock and showcase his brilliantly sarcastic messages to the world. It’s a delicate line, but he treads it. In ‘666 Jokes’, Hugleikur showcases the best and worst of Icelandic humour. These are thoughts you might not even say in a tight group of friends while drunk by the campfire and everyone’s cell phones are out of battery. Hugleikur makes fun of everything—and I mean everything. Only the bravest of the brave should read this book, for Hugleikur is like a lovely Icelandic summer festival—filled with unruly madness, riot, burning tents and crappy folk music.
