The viking age: "They were grabbing people off the sidewalk and pulling them into their revelry of yo-ho! and woo-hoo!"

We're getting several reports about a pub crawl from this past Saturday. One reader described it as "a roving birthday party." One in which everyone wore viking helmets.

Here's a reader-submitted photo....



Others were apparently swept up in the hoopla as well....



From another reader:

"At one point, after listening to waves of screaming crowds, i looked out to see dozens of douchebags wearing Viking helmets! They were grabbing people off the sidewalk and pulling them into their revelry of yo-ho! and woo-hoo!"

I resent the implied aspersions cast on my ancestors.

I will be addressing the aspersions cast on the maternal side in mid-March.

I feel your pain, Barbara. As a fellow Viking, if I got pulled in the street by some hëlmüt-wearing drunk mofo, it would end in a rain of pain. And I am a lady!

You forgot about chanting "Flight of the Valkyries", and ending up being in an outdoor police lineup, and fun times like this: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v11/Othello/PVFFPV2009/ohshitviking.jpg
