A friend of mine had a gchat message noting that she was sad to be missing the viking fair. And me in my inqusitive nature of course messaged her with two words and a question mark: “viking fair?” Which is to say, what the heck are you talking about. And oh am I glad that I asked just because of the response:
Her: haha, yeah. it’s more of a norwegian fair, but i like vikings more than norwegians.
So a word to the Norwegians: feel offended…feel very, very offended. Either that, or start going by fun names like Erik the Red.
