Just when we thought our coverage of Justin Bieber had come to an end, it turns out he has left our park rangers in Skaftárhreppur, South Iceland, worried. What causes them concern is the flood of so-called Beliebers (meaning lieber Bieber, or believers in Bieber, depending on how you analyze the word) likely to follow in his footsteps. The group in question is probably mostly young girls in their teens, blinded by love for their generously tattooed idol.
The park rangers worry not about the injuries of love those young girls may suffer from never being able to touch the object of their affection. On the contrary, they worry about the injuries Icelandic moss will suffer once those love-sick ladies start imitating their beloved by rolling their bodies in the moss he touched.
The rangers point out how sensitive moss is and how little it takes to ruin it, RÚV reports. Tourists, they say, should avoid walking in it, because once trampled down, it doesn’t recover.
The pop idol, they say, crossed fences, which had been set up to protect the most sensitive areas. Now, they worry, Beliebers will not be stopped by any fences. They wish they would come to their senses.
