funny shit 07/09/2018

This Norwegian couple went full metal with their wedding, decided to exchange vows in an authentic viking ceremony - with longboats, a pagan priest, a blood sacrifice and everything.

The couple, Elisabeth and Rune Dalseth, decided to screw it and ditch their Christian upbringing, opting for a ceremony including a 'blot' ritual - a cauldron of pig's blood put in a pile of stones, dripped over small figures representing the gods, then blotted onto the foreheads of the couple. How bloody hardout is that?

27-year-old Elisabeth said: "We danced to live music that our ancestors danced to over a millennium ago."

The couple are part of a 6,000+ member Norwegian Viking revitalist movement, even naming their six-month-old son after the legendary viking Ragnar Lothbrok. They're keen to combat the vikings notorious reputation for violence, rape and pillage - "Vikings were no more terrible than any other group of people living at that time" rune said.

He's been pagan for two years, introducing Elisabeth to the world of vikings when they met back in 2016. 

"Rune completely opened up a new world for me, and I soon fell in love with the people and the spirituality of it," she said.

"I come from a very Christian family. When I announced that we were not going to have a Christian wedding my mum was a little unsure about it. But I think she has now come to accept it. She can see how happy paganism makes me and how it has helped me get my life together. Before I was a Viking, I didn't have a wife, a baby and a house - now look at me," Rune said.

Hey, whatever you're into mate.
