    How about flame throwers? (lighter fluid and lit matches)Vikings loved flame throwers.

    That sounds more horrible than Hagar.

    More like punctured eardrums, if my past history with Q-tips is repeatable.

    Vikings actually had ornate silver ear spoons to clean their ears. Only slightly more dangerous than Q-tips.

    They may be Scandinavian warriors, but those “weapons” make them look like the American Gladiators.

    Did you know that the big crowd scene for the race in StarWars Ep. 1 was Q-tips? Yessiree. Saved tons of money, and who could tell the difference?

    For violence, sex, intrigue, betrayal, revenge, more violence, and other good stuff, I highly recommend the History Channel’s show “Vikings”.

    But I was amazed to learn that Ragnar Lothbroke may be historical! If Wiki is to be believed, his existence is questionable but his children (even Ivar the Boneless) are historically attested to, despite some dubious timelines. Unfortunately, this fact may have ruined next season for me. (Oops. SPOILER ALERT!)

    So who lost on Jeopardy (besides Weird Al, of course)?

    And maybe later those Vikings can clean Rat’s clock?!?

    One would think that Rat would be a lot more angry than he is.

    I suppose the Viking action figures would indeed use Q-Tips as if pugil sticks. Can I play, too, Pig? Let the combat begin!
