Yay Vikings! (No, not Minnesota, the other kind)

Season 3 of Vikings starts tonight on the History channel! Is anyone else out there a huge fan of this series? (I know Francie, Mary and Cal are!)

To mark the return of Ragnar, Rollo, Lagertha, Bjorn, Floki and the gang, how about a few Viking LOLs? If that's not a contradiction in terms, I mean.

Historically, the Vikings were tremendous explorers. Those guys sure as hell got around. When you least expected it, there they'd be.


These days, however, Vikings restrict themselves to corporate raiding and financial plunder only.


Plus they take holidays now. Everyone's got to relax sometime.


Traditionally, Viking kids are raised to be fierce right from Day One.


Even their friggin' CATS are vicious.


So for example, don't let this baby's charming smile fool you. Inside every plush Teddy bear snowsuit, there's a savage Viking waiting to get out.


And baby Viking girls ALL want to be Valkyries. Who can blame them? I want to be a Valkyrie myself!


Hey, want the man in your life to look more like a sexy Viking? Here's a quick and easy way to achieve it using only simple household cutlery.


Or you can persuade him to get a haircut like Ragnar's.


If he'd prefer to leave his hair long, however, just make sure he doesn't wash it or brush it for a couple of weeks. And if he can cultivate a Stone-Cold Killer glare as well, then BONUS! The Barbarian is at the gates -- rowrrrr!

Great way to start the morning. Looking forward to tonight.

Ahh Vikings. God I love those guys. I haven't seen the show but I'll inevitably check it out one day. I'm one of those people that doesn't like watching a show as it airs. I'd rather wait a lot longer and watch the whole thing without delay than get to a really great part and then have to wait a year for more episodes.

PS If I ever own an office I'm getting a longboat conference table.

I'm not sure if that one baby was supposed to be a viking or a cow. Is Vikings the one show on television that can justify the lack of diversity of its cast? Probably.

DEZMOND said...

I stopped watching at the middle of the first season when they started depicting them as just heroes while in reality they were brutal maniacs and pillagers....

Jeanne said...

Oh Yes! Love Me some Vikings!!!
Whenever I see a haircut like Ragnar's I can't help but get all hot and ....well...let's just say his haircut is hot! :o)

Some great LOLs! Especially the moon!

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

HAHAHA! These are hilarious. Great way to start the day :)

Jim said...

YIKES!
The Vikings are coming, the Viking are coming!!!

jaz@octoberfarm said...

this is so funny! love the table!

Anne Johnson said...

Fair hair and blue eyes run in my family tree (didn't get them myself), so I know I have that DNA somewhere. It's a good show, they just forgot the dogs.

Debi said...

My house is excited for the new season, ME, I'd take the hammock ! xDebi

JACKIESUE said...

I so love this show..he is so sexy..he should have played the lead in 50 shades of grey..but as for the horned helmets no viking ever wore them.ha..can't wait for tonight.

Some great photos here. Love the hats on the people and animals.

PS: Onions, potatoes, spinach, sausage and eggs. With a side of test batch muffins.

Leeanna said...

I got David hooked in the middle of season one. We are fanatics of the show. He saw the hammock and wants to buy it. Way too much money. I told him to go pillage a village and maybe we could get it.

Dixie@dcrelief said...

I figured Vikings had been to the moon. It was only a matter of time before NASA released the photo.

Wit, people in bear costumes are Vikings? That's me. I knew it. Well, suck my horn and call me Helga!

psychelyn said...

Haha gotta love that new old sexier hairstyle :)

Insomniac’s Attic said...

It's on my calendar for tonight! Actually it's the only thing on my calendar this week. Except for making doughnuts tomorrow morning. :)

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

However fierce, I want to scoop up that baby savage and smother him/her with kisses. That's one foreboding cutie.

Michael D'Agostino said...

I especially like the board room table because you know which seat the CEO's going to take ;)

anne marie in philly said...

hi debra; just joined up after seeing your name on other blogs I read!

I passed this entry onto a friend of mine who counts vikings amongst his ancestors.

Guillaume said...

I am all for more Viking stuff in our life. I used to have a Viking cat.

Adam said...

they reached America way before anyone else. Iceland-Greenland-Canada is a much faster path than Spain-to-Caribbean.

Stupid Columbus

Birdie said...

Norbert must be related to the Viking cats. It would explain a lot.

Fundy Blue said...

That little munchkin under the cat flat out steals the post! I haven't seen the series Vikings, so I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the laughs, Debra!

Robin Larkspur said...

The moon landing is perfect

Riot Kitty said...

We're debating whether there are any Scandinavians in my family. I think it would make sense if we were related to vikings...my dad, however, says I'm too short to be a viking.

I tell him there were short vikings, too.

Ron Troke said...

If all the Vikings looked like the last feller well then I SURRENDER!!

CraveCute said...

I've been watching since the series started. I have to say that I record it and fast-forward through all the gory fight scenes. I think they are still depicted as brutal maniacs and pillagers....

Joy Christi said...

Those are awesome! And segsy, the grown-up ones, of course!
I have not watched it, it sounds amazing. I will have to see if we get that channel now. It sounds like something we would love.
Ever read The 13th Warrior? Was that Vikings, or just people LIKE the Vikings? Either way, awesome character. I can see where Klingon characters came from on Star Trek!

Optimistic Existentialist said...

I really need to watch this show because I've heard such great things about it!!

Francie M said...

hahaha! Good ones. But I heard that a major character is going to be killed off, Debra. Nooooooo! And what's with that English King after your Lagertha, eh??? Can't wait for next week!

Mary said...

Love that show! Love. it. I have had dreams about Ragnar. And i've had dreams about Rollo. (No idea what that means.) lol. But i want Ragnar back with Lagertha. The princess bugs the crap out of me.

Magaly Guerrero said...

I haven't watched the first episode yet. I mean, how embarrassing. Those guys went to the moon and all; must keep up with my history.

Love the Valkyrie, lol!

But seriously, I just added the show to my Netflix list. I, too, want to ride at dawn!!!

Rommy said...

My son would get a kick out of that crochet hat! I'm tempted to find the pattern.

Miss Val's Creations said...

Great montage! My boyfriend loves the Vikings. I tried getting into it but it wasn't for me. I'll stick with Game of Thrones.

dbs said...

The fork idea is especially clever.

Green Monkey said...

I am late to jump on the Viking train (ship)... will have to check it out.

Bill the Butcher said...

I watched some episodes from Season One. Didn't enjoy it much so I didn't watch any more. I got to the point where they go to England for the second time and murder people on the beach.

Laurie M said...

this is one of my favorite shows, my husband can't stand it but I just find that blue eyed viking so easy on the eyes, lol, quite a bit of blood and gore but I suppose thats the way it was, and using those massive swords and axes one would expect some splatter, where do you find these photos, oh my gosh, that table, lol,

evilsloth4 said...

He was forked well.

Magic Love Crow said...

Great post ;o) I would love to have that table and chairs! I have only watched the first season, I have to get caught up. Really loved the show!

bill lisleman said...

vikings - better than zombies anyway

LL Cool Joe said...

Thanks I'm off to get my haircut in the morning now I have a couple of new styles to try out. :D

miruspeg said...

Just popped over from Bill's blog (Lisleman).

I'm a huge Viking fan. I am not normally into violence but the Viking show is so well made, it has got me hooked.

Cheers
