The Viking Approach to Life

Some people will permit their children to play dodgeball, but only after putting on safety glasses, a helmet, and bubble-wrap.

a

Vikings will encourage their kids to go outside and “play with something sharp”.

a

Some people prefer to take a Zen-like approach to life, and will try to live with a minimum of material possessions.

a

Vikings will help these people achieve their goal.

a

a

Some people like to relax with yoga

Vikings like to tie their enemies into knots.

a

a

a

Some people enjoy a nice, soothing, hot cup of caffeine-free herbal tea.

a

Vikings have no use for boiling water, except to pour on invaders trying to storm the perimeter.

a

a

Some people deal with stress and conflict by invoking the Serenity Prayer

Vikings will count to zero, before losing their temper.

(Maybe).

When confronted with disasters like major oil spills, some people might hold drum circles, and offer their prayers and positive energy, so that Mother Earth may heal herself.

a

Vikings would stab and poke Mother Earth,  just out of spite.   And to coax out more oil out of the ground.

(Well…because they’re VIKINGS!)

    You should have done a blog post called, “The Cricket Approach to Life”, where the hell is everyone?

  3. Janice Cartier Says:

    Brett,
    We’re too busy rolling on the floor laughing at this. :)))))

    Pause….

    Nope.. still laughing…. 😀

  4. XUP Says:

    I am enclosing $99.95 for one of those rainbow-pooping unicorns. I feel it would make me very popular and also happy on many levels. Thank you.

  5. Friar Says:

    @Brett
    Yep…as I’ve said before, with the exception of a few loyal readers here, nobody wants to read original humor and cartoons on blogs anymore.

    They’re more into navel-gazing, and reading “Tips” on how to be happy. Or blogging about navel-gazers who write tips on how to be happy.

    @Janice
    You helped instigate this! It started from our discussion on Facebook, where we talked about the BP oil spill, and hippies dancing around maypoles… 🙂

    @XUP
    I think even that rainbow-colored poop could sell. It would be like a rainbow snow cone or something.

  6. Wendi Kelly Says:

    Did somebody say Maypole?

    The navel-gazers are out enjoying the short-lived sun we are having around here I think. No worries, hurricane season is right around the corner again.

    Actually even Facebook seems a little slower lately, except for mafia wars and a few other games. Nothing seems to slow those folks down.

    Oooh, a Viking Life Coach — “Vikings will help these people achieve their goal.” Now THAT’S what I’m talking about. 🙂 Life would be much simpler without all those material possessions.

    Friar, I was in Chapters the other day and saw the most amazing children’s book: The Lion and the Mouse, by Jerry Pinkney. He tells the story with artwork only…no story, per se. The artwork was so beautiful it almost brought tears to my eyes. I think I’m going to go back and buy it.

  8. Cath Lawson Says:

    LMAO – This is brilliant Friar. It would be great if you could put a heap of these into a book – I would definitely buy it and I bet plenty other people would too.

  9. Allison Day Says:

    Hah! I think a lot more bloggers need to take the viking approach to life… then the internet would be a much more amusing place. 😀

  10. XUP Says:

    Have the Vikings all expired from the heat? I can totally understand that since they come from a colder climate, but maybe you could let them know that we kind of miss them.

  11. Friar Says:

    @Wendi
    Yep…the Purlple Maypole Sisterhood is at it again! 🙂

    @Davina
    Maybe you can take that approach to your own site. I bet you would be the first Viking Life Coach out there.

    @Cath
    Thanks. I’m working on one Viking book already…this might have to be Part II or Part III.

    @Allison
    Present company excepted (my loyal readers), I think most bloggers are about as opposite to Vikings as you can get.

    @XUP
    The Vikings took a week off and went on vacation. But they’re back now, and well-rested, and are ready to start their Nordic antics again.
