Coming from the land of ice and snow

Brave Norwegian takes lives into own hands .  Joined by a person who happened to be working on the boat when it left, the man who led his former team to their deaths goes back to look for them. That ole viking spirit is alive and well. The fatness of the viking loony adventurer is not recorded.

I think that I'd just say, "Thank God I wasn't on the boat too" and cut my losses.

Thanks. Now I've singing the Immigrant song in my head! :)

They are your overlords, Laura. It's just that having done quite badly before, he's going down the same road again. Maybe this time, no one will be frozen.

Laura said...

Well, I can't say that I haven't made the same mistake twice myself so.. all the best to him I suppose. :)

I'd SO do pre-1990's Robert Plant. (and pre-1980's Captain Kirk)

Laura, I had front row left seats for Plant's recent Band of Joy tour.

I wouldn't rule him out these days, either.

Laura said...

Oh really? He's still "do-able" is he? :P

I'd love to see him live. I believe he's on my bucket list!

I have a video for Mrs. Cat. Note duckling OUTSIDE cat. Therefore not Mrs Cat.

his expedition's yacht, the Berserk, sank in a storm.

Maybe naming your yacht "Reliable" would help.

Damn boat keeps crashing into ice floes deliberately!

Damn, can I request a Mulligan?

That's the cover story, but the yacht was really sunk by some Yorkshireman in a tub.

I hope there are no ships down there called the Brian Boru.

That ole viking spirit

Do not accept offers of akvavit from anyone called Ole.

Another Kiwi said...

What about accepting chorizo from someone calling "Olé"?

Smut Clyde said...

On reflection, I would prefer to sail in a ship called 'Egil Skallagrimsson' -- there would be more poetry and more living until 80.

Unless he pronounces it "wiking."

vacuumslayer said...

"Loony Vikings" is more fun to say than "Norwegian."

vacuumslayer said...

Btw, my past w/v was "fookerle."

Sure, you can fookerle, bit then what are you going to do for the rest of the day?

Substance McGravitas said...

I believe I might call my yacht "Cigareets, Whuskey & Wild Women" and sail it to some place that is not cold.

vacuumslayer said...

Imma stowaway and nip at your whuskey.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Alternate version, substance.

But I think you've posted that one before anyway.

Why do I bother?

Substance McGravitas said...

Zombie Sisyphus.

Smut Clyde said...

You know WHO ELSE was dead but still had to roll big stones around??

vacuumslayer said...

Zombie Reagan? Just ask any wingnut about the size of his zombie-balls!

wiley said...

He was no Ernie Shackleton. You ought to know how I feel about Sir Ernie.

I think that this dude would feel that Shackleton overplanned things, Wylie. You and I might say "took reasonable steps for a hazardous journey".

That's funny. Whenever I've heard the phrase "trickle down," the first thing I've always thought of is getting peed on. This can't be a coincidence.
