The Pantsless But Fur Clad Animalistic Viking Warriors of Extraordinary Magnitude
Every famous army has their shock troops, and as myth tells it, Odin’s was no exception! Hell his boys didn’t even need armour! Naked but for a shield, maybe an animal mask and a bear or wolf skin draped over their heads, the Berserkers, were said to rush into battle howling, roaring, biting and killing with all the delicacy of a horde of rabid demons.
Berserkers were said to be fearless and nearly indestructible. Now perhaps this was because their cause was so true and blessed that magically, iron nor fire had effect on them. But the alternative theory is seemingly a lil more realistic in that they showed no fear as they were just whacked out of their gourds on the Norse equivalent of bath salts. But hey, whatever the reason, when someone in modern day times goes apesh*t crazy we still say they are going Berserk, and that’s some F’ing brand longevity and in my opinion worth a drawing or 30!
Here’s the bullet points:
- Norse warriors of legend
- Naked but for a bear or wolf skin draped upon their heads
- Bit their own shields in anticipation of battle
- Howled and roared like animals
- Fought in a trance-like frenzy
- Seemingly indestructible
- Potentially whacked out of their gourds on Bog Myrtle
So I judged this week, and was all set to judge and criticize everyone’s weens … but alas it seems we were nearly ween free and since I am a judge of character, I refused to adjust and you see the results below!
