ON THIS DAY in 1066, King Harold II of England defeated the Vikings at the Battle of Stamford Bridge, finally freeing England from the threat of invasions and assuring himself a long and peaceful reign.

    Harold’s fortune cookie read: When making judgments, don’t be Hastings.

  2. Bjorn Bjornsen says:

    What’s all this I hear about the English fearing the threat of Caucasions? Why I’m white and I think I’m a pretty nice guy. Some of my best friends are white and they’re nice too. I’d be fearing those Germans if I were King Harold.

    Ehhhh, that’s threat of INVASIONS, Dr. Bjornsen.

    Ohhhh, that’s very different. Never mind.
