Obviously Subby didn't hear what happened to the Metrodome this weekend.

I was rooting for Loki.

What about the Smirf Calender?
We are doomed.

A little late to be posting articles explaining something that was suppose to happen Saturday, don't you think.

As far as that calendar is concerned, it does.

It dies that day.  Poor guy.

Since Loki is the god of mischief, I bet he was behind this whole false end of the world thing.

Well played Loki, well played.

To be fair it only started on the 22nd.  It hasn't even had a shower yet.  Just wait until it gets some coffee in it, then you'll really see something.

30 years too late.

They could not even do that right.

Ditto, I just finished polishing up the old girl in anticipation of smashing some frost giants. On the bright side, the Sun was not devoured.

You'd be out of luck anyway.  Odin, Thor, Loki, and Heimdall will all be killed during Ragnarok.

Had to chase a frost giant out of my garden Friday night.

What a Viking apocalypse may look like.
 
2014-02-24 10:25:37 AM  
They always sneak the lesser apocalypses out during the February-March doldrums, and it's no wonder no one ever bothers to see them. When a project stays shelved as long as these do before finally getting released, you know it's not worth the time.

i know we like to use the word Viking, but it's a real misnomer.

a viking is a generic term for an attacking force (or member of an attacking force).  the "vikings" were whoever was attacking you.  it didn't matter where they came from.  for example, there were times when the norse people were attacked by "vikings" from the south.

/ unless you make the argument that the norse were so awesome that they should just take the title of attackers because they were the best at it.

There was an apocalypse, it was just really low key.
 
2014-02-24 10:55:10 AM  
They did a lot less fighting then you think.  They were to busy founding cities, like Dublin and Moscow.

/How the farking careless do you have to be, to lose a city and require the Vikings to come and find it for you.
// OK, both those places are know for heavy drinking, so they get a break.

Cheesehead_Dave: Well, there was this:

[img.fark.net image 300x167]


I'm kind of hoping they left most of the team in there. No Valhalla for them. Can't win enough to make the play-offs, can't lose enough to give us a a good draft pick. I know, let's build them a new stadium. That'll fix everything.

grumble grumble grumble...

That's ok, like certain locusts, it can come back every eleven years.

I don't know what you're talking about. Ended over here.

Well, it was SUPPOSED to be the Viking Apocalypse but Ol' One Eye the Trickster farking cheated again. of course.   A small suitcase nuke wrapped in a giant Trojan mouse was all she wrote for the Midgard Serpent,  a tranq gun loaded with some shiat they use to paralyze a charging water buffalo was all it took to take Fenris down, and a a few contract advisers from  BlackWater have ben training the heros of Valhalla in the use of modern integrated battle techniques and weapons.   In particular I hear the sniper teams witht he Barretts did VERY well in the Front/Fire Giant suppression department.

Hell I don't think the old bastard even took off his suit or took his spear out of storage all weekend.    Thor was kinda pissed, but then he always is.
 
2014-02-24 11:33:58 AM  
OK, I'm pissed!   How come I was not notified about this apocalypse in advance?

I have things I need to do before hand.

Where's the kaboom? There was supposed to be a Midgard-shattering kaboom!
