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
:P ‎· Hookuh Tinypants
I wish somebody had shared this map with these guys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ZHl7qVZqpo ‎· Mr. Noodle
my contribution - and not a horn in sight... I think https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qSkaAwKMD4 ‎· heleninstitches
@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
:) ‎· Eivind
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 ?
