laulaja: i.imgur.comActually 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.
Cuchulane: Python thread! I'm going to forward this thread to a few million e-mail addresses.
Popcorn Johnny: I have no idea if the headline is a typo or an inside joke.
alfuso: Real Women Drink Akvavit: alfuso: Real Women Drink Akvavit: 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 untilhot, add Tapatio, consume) and smoothies or something, as our strange, California ways teach us to do, regardless of ethnic heritage.♪ Lovely spam, wonderful spam ♪Well, it was the Danish Vikings who sauntered into Normandy in the 10th century.Owned it. Married into aristocracy, became sharp administrators in the French kings' court. Then sashayed across the Channel with Killer Bill in1066. Killed all the men, married their wimmin's and took over England.A couple of their descendants rolled into Ipswich Massachusetts before the Revolution. Then moved to Maine, where they still live. They are my cousins.*Scandi fist bump*All my cousins are still in Norway. There's only five us in my family that live in the US.Yes, it's true. I was an anchor baby before it was cool to hate on anchor babies. My mom was so hip back in her day!The other half of my family met my ancestors on the beach. Algonquin.
The Larch: I bet Vikings could recognize any number of trees from quite a long distance away.

johnperkins: The Larch: johnperkins: I think there's a typo in the headline. Everyone seems to be talking about spam, but shouldn't that be span?So you're trying to say you'd like a joke without so much spam in it?It doesn't bug me; it just doesn't make any sense. Spam was invented in the 1930's (I think), so it doesn't make sense for vikings to have spam.

Raptop: stratagos: Golf clap for subbybears_repeating.gif
This thread's at least mildly entertaining. Mikeyworld's given me an idea that'll bear a GoodSearch for. I don't use Gurgle when it can be avoided.In Addition, this below, that I wished for earlier but hadn't yet the graphic to captionate:
LumberJack: Because I hadn't seen the Monty Python sketch to which the subby apparently references, I looked it up. And now, so the rest of you don't have to get Fark Hipstered with "OMG you suck because you don't know what I know, yer dum", here.
spacemanjones: Mikeyworld: 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 HonorsThat, is why you fail.
Bondith: Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: I like have to push the pram a lot.
Ennuipoet: 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!
