Spills and thrills ping.
“thousand year old Vikings”....”young men”...damn, doesn’t ANYONE proof read anymore??
Other than that, interesting....
NO doubt trying to import fish that were too salty. If we are to take what they are trying to do in NYC as an indicator...
I am willing to bet the young Vikings in questions did not think it was a thrilling development...
we all figured that out years back here..remember?
we are pretty smart bunch here
those poor guys must have had pisspoor directions to Danelaw.
Huh...perhaps I’ve a Great(X30)Uncle in the group.
At last! Vindication. The Brits stared it.
The key to discovering their identities was the pile of 1,000 year old cans of SPAM found near the bodies.
WOW! Those were some old Vikings. How did they live so long?
So, ya think some muzzies decapitated them?
I know the fans in Minnesota have had more than their share of frustration, but....
And how will they tell these Viking raiders from the French Viking raiders with William the Conqueror, in 1066?
The people missing heads would appear to be a defeated bunch, whereas William brought the varsity.
Score one for the locals.
Your ancestors came here to keep a head?
Egads, third grade writing.
It was Packers fans. Perhaps its the only way to keep Favre retired. But he is like a Viking Vampire...
Wow, those Vikings lived for a 1,000 years before they died? How amazing!
Actually, you would think people who make their living writing could do a little better than most of them do.
I want my reparations NOW!!
“To find out that the young men executed were Vikings is a thrilling development,” he added.”
Probably not so thrilling for the Vikings.
Thanks decimon, bamahead, colorado tanker, and wardaddy. WD, I didn't track down the topic(s), but I remember the same thing. :') To all on the GGG list -- I pinged the first one I saw, but this is the oldest of the three (three so far) and therefore has priority.

A quick read of the title, I thought they were Viking scientists :)
Guess they didn’t believe in civilian trials for the equivalent of 11th century terrorists.
Maybe for the better. Decapitation is quick, the rack is slow.
They were from the 1st church of Vikings, Scientists.
