The Tea Break at the Wall of Asgard…

Paracetamjolnir…

We are your bona heathens… (Julian and Sandy: Round the Horne)

Faith should be joyful and life affirming

Humour is subjective

Faith through the lens of humour allows change and growth

Humour is based in a shared understanding of culture

 

‘At least we won’t die a straw death’ - Arrgh where is this from? I know it’s a saga, it’s a small matter of remembering which one...I’m sure I haven’t dreamt it…

 

Vikings are fatalistic.

Kate likes a happy ending

Vikings are utilitarian

In a hole in the ground...

Only listen to this after the 9pm watershed...

A parallel with Ibn Rustah’s translator
