Just a Viking map showing Viking things
Is it true that viking helmets didn't have horns? ‎- SaeedTheGiraffe ?
That is true for the vast majority of them, at least. Wagner is often credited with popularizing the horny viking look :) ‎- Eivind
No "horny viking" jokes? :) ‎- Eivind
I've been trying to pull one together for the last hour but I'm rather shit when it comes to proper comedy. :) ‎- Hookuh Tinypants
Haha! It's the thought that counts :D ‎- Eivind
Give Pete some time. He'll likely come up with the best zinger ever. :D ‎- Hookuh Tinypants
I'm not your monkey butler jester, Ghooood ‎- Pete Smith
You're our everything, Pete. ‎- Hookuh Tinypants
Oh,do fuck off. ‎- Pete Smith
And now I have a Chaka Khan earworm. ‎- Pete Smith
Anyway, Vikings... ‎- Pete Smith

@cgrymala: Lost in time and space :( ‎- Eivind
@heleninstitches: No, at least there are no horns... ‎- Eivind
Hmm. I wonder what happened in that bit of England where the Danes and Norse were close to each other? ‎- Spidra Webster
Danelaw had Danes, Norse and Hiberno-Norse as kings as well as a mixed population. I think what's being indicated by the green color in western Britain is the Hiberno-Norse migration there in the 900s :) ‎- Eivind
Brian Boru, is it you? ‎- Pete Smith

Lots of Vikings in west Wales indeed. ‎- Pete Smith
this is why my Ukrainian in laws are super tall and super blond, I'm guessing. ‎- Christina Pikas
never thought about them not being horny, now that I'm enlightened I will make that joke on the next viking I chance upon :D ‎- SaeedTheGiraffe ?
