Tippi The fearless girl

Tippi is a tiny blond girl who lives in Africa. She has a brother by the name of Abu who weighs five tons, and her cats are huge and much stronger than her daddy. This may sound like surrealistic fiction, but it is the true story of Tippi, daughter of two French filmmakers and wildlife photographers, working in southern Africa. Their life in the bush, dunes and swamps, and about Tippi's endearing kinship with wild animals, particularly Abu, a five-ton elephant..

Fjóla, don't be stupid, you can spell it "Tippi" or "Typpi" Both are right ;) so don't be calling people jerks if you are the stupid one.

Tippi isn't a word in Icelandic. The word for penis is typpi.

Stay in school kids. Learn your own language!

You CAN spell it both ways, but still "typpi" is the correct one, if you have any grammatical sense there is no reason for you to write it with a simple "i".

Why?

Because those who write "tippi" are idiots who don't know the meaning of "Y" and never spell right words who contain the letter because they are either dyslexic or simply stupid.

Þið þarna vitleysingar, orðið "tippi" er ekki til í nútímaorðabók.
Hættið þessu bölvaða kjaftæði, verið ekki að rífa ykkur um eitthvað sem þið vitið augljóslega ekkert um.

Can't really see the funny part in Tippi meaning penis... maybe because im too used to hearing the shortened term for Richard in english...
