Today, one of the supervisors and I were talking about geography for whatever reason, specifically about Iceland and Greenland…and the version of world history he gave me was: well, Iceland was settled by the Vikings when they were fleeing persecution.
Me: Who was persecuting Vikings? Is that what they’re teaching in schools these days?
Mike: I don’t know! No. I just said it because it just sounded right.
Me: Say it again, slower.
Mike: Yeah, okay. It does sound ridiculous now that I’m thinking about it.
Aw, man. Persecuting Vikings.
