Viking is a word that occurs multiple places on the internet and in print. Yes.

What is best in brunch? To cure your salmon, to feel Glögg dribble down your chin, and to smell the fermentaion of your herring.

Oh good, this thread again. No, seriously--this is where I'm a Viking!

Best answer: Dress however you want, I don't care, but if you try to get in front of me at the Ensiferum concert you will suddenly gain a deeper understanding of Blood is the Price of Glory.

Before everyone jumps on the OP, let's take a moment to recognize that the linked article has a link to a blue cheese dip recipe that looks totally killer.

In order to be consistent with the Viking theme, brunching like a Viking should entail attending a Þorrablót. Anything less is just eating with enthusiasm.

How to brunch like a viking: You die (in battle), go to Valhalla, there's Särimner and you eat him. He's basically regenerating bacon, you know. Pretty darn hip.

I've had many a brunch among Vikings, but I have never truly brunched *like* a Viking because that requires either being hungover, or still drunk from the night before. Preferably on Brennivín.

Fool! That's the point of brunch! Hair of the dog after waking up hungover/drunk at noon and scarfing down eggs and potatoes or french toast with people who told you the dumb shit you did the night before (also, telling them the dumb shit they did). And a bottomless cup of coffee.

I fucking love brunch!

Brunch is an excuse to drink before noon.

And that is why I love it.

piratebowling: Well, I think my main problem is I've never been hungover. I'd say that I'll work on that... but that'd be a total lie.

It's not quite breakfast, it's not quite lunch, but it comes with a slice of hallucinogenic mushroom at the end.

I like brunch. I'm just glad they didn't call it leakfast. I don't think I'd enjoy it as much.

Now, if you'll excuse me, it's time for my linner.

Sorry, you lose, "viking" means "smörgåsbord" in Japan. But thanks for trying.

This is where Robert Plant is a viking. ROCK ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What was really the point at the top post on brunch? Since when were modern people in Sweeden considered "vikings" any more than people in Nevada considered "pioneers?" Or is it just because vikings are like pirates, but not nearly as tired a meme?
