That is so farkin' COOL! I knew some long ships could be huge, I just didn't know they could be that huge. I will have to show Gran and Mom this when they wake up in a bit. Bet they'll start sniping on Denmark ("Norway is better, Denmark is too flat. Why don't they check Norway for some better ships?") but they'll still get that little bit of Scandinavian pride and promptly want gravlax and lefse. Me, I'll just make some breakfast bolillos (refritos on a bolillo with pico de gallo and a bit of queso fresco, broil until hot, add Tapatio, consume) and smoothies or something, as our strange, California ways teach us to do, regardless of ethnic heritage.

I fear for Fark when an obvious Python joke is lost on the average Farker.  I think we need remedial Pythoniztation of the site immediately!

Just when you think nothing is obscure on Fark, something that shouldn't be obscure at all goes sailing right over peoples heads.

Lobster Thermidor aux crevettes with a Mornay sauce, garnished with truffle pâté, brandy and a fried egg on top and some nice warm toast.

To be fair, 'Erik The Viking' was a Terry Jones film, based on a children's book Jones had written by the same name. Even though the movie really didn't have much of a tie in with the book. Other than the name. And the sea serpent scene.

/still have a copy of the book

Here's a more comprehensive article about the ship.
And I'll see if I can force myself to down just one more Akvavit, in honour of Scandinavian peace & friendship, and your parents' no doubt fine Norwegian ancestry.
Skål!

Ennuipoet's too right, remedial Pythoniztation of the site  is needed immediately!It's also  suchapity the real Vikings didn't manage to train dragons on & with which to fly. Just saw those films quite recently, enjoyed the heck out of 'em!
Also, this:

Actually Lapland rather than Viking. This is a Four Winds cap, bought by moi  when we were most recently in Finland a lifetime ago & worn by moi  to sing Christmas carols under when "Cute Headgear" was requested/demanded for doing same by my SweetAdelines chorus costume chair.

I love the movie except for the damn musical numbers. I hate musicals and spoofing them is not ironic or funny.

It's an inside joke if you are under, say, 45. But then we old farts find Ludacris quite rational.

I'm sorry. Monty Python reference or not, The headline was stooped. As in, not funny not relevant, and not worthy of Fark. I think a Led Zep referencewould have been more timely, because of the Kennedy Honors

Rich Cream: I love the movie except for the damn musical numbers. I hate musicals and spoofing them is not ironic or funny.

Funny, I would imagine that someone who LOVES musicals would also find that "spoofing them is not ironic or funny."

Two completely different emotions, same conclusion.

What do you think of the "Singing in the Rain sequence from Clockwork Orange then?

Do you know the way to Mordor: What do you think of the "Singing in the Rain sequence from Clockwork Orange then?


It seemed endemic to the plot and character definition, and it was only one and that is no musical.

/you see, the musical part added to the insanity
//therefore musicals are a lot of insanity

When Spiny Norman was about, Alex would go very quiet, and start wobblin'. His nose would swell up, his teeth would move about, and he'd become very violent.
