Bros are usually harmless enough. Sure, they might buy a romper suit and play pointless drinking games from time to time. They might love HOUSE MUSIC and deadlifts and boat shoes... maybe even a burger with the boys on a Saturday. That's cool, that's fine.

But sometimes bros go too far. Sometimes bros carve the term "Send Nudes" into moss that covers the side of an ancient Icelandic hill; moss that will take 70 years to grow back.

Why, bros?.. Why?

This bro-iest of mantras was scrawled on a hill near Nesjavellir on the south of the island by tearing clumps of moss from the ground and was spotted by tour guide Gunnar Birgisson. "I think someone was trying to be funny," he told The Independent. "But they don't realise they are vandalising nature and possibly causing this to spread."

While it hasn't actually been confirmed that bros are the culprits for this boneheaded piece of petty vandalism, it doesn't take a super sleuth to deduce what kind of person would deface a landmark in one of the world's most beautiful places with the slogan "Send Nudes".

"People come from such different places from Iceland that they don't know what's right and wrong," Birigisson continued. "And it's a herd mentality. Some guy went up there many years ago and wrote his name. He was an Icelander, and by doing so he started it. One pair of footprints can motivate thousands to follow. It's the same with offroading - an area will be untouched for decades until one person drives on it and then everyone thinks it's allowed, so the whole area gets covered with tyre tracks."

"Everyone I know has caught someone offroading. They always say the same thing - that they didn't know it wasn't allowed - even though they all have a big yellow sticker on the dashboard of their rental car telling them not to do it. People need to know the law and respect it."

"Send nudes?" Come on bros...
