Next week, the Ridiculous Viking Stuff blog will achieve its first birthday. February 11th, to be precise. That is the day that zoomwsu launched the site by publishing our introductory post and it shall ever be the blog’s birthday. So say we all.
February 11th is an auspicious day in history, according to Wikpedia. Rich in history, those events which enriched humanity’s collective story, as befits RVS. On this day in 55 BC, Emperor Claudius died, clearing the way for Nero to ascend the throne. In 1861, this day was marked by the US House of Representatives passing a resolution not to interfere with slavery where it legally existed in a craven and pointless attempt to prevent the slaughter of the Civil War. And on February 11th, 2006, Vice President Dick Cheney shot a friend of his in the face with a shotgun.
Really? God damn it…
Ummm, RVS also shares a birthday with many notable celebrities. Burt freakin’ Reynolds! Longtime America’s sweetheart Jennifer Anniston! Gifted inventor Thomas Edison! But that’s not all! We have illustrious political figures including the beloved Sarah Palin, the widely respected former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush, and…Alex Jones.
Shit. I don’t have much to work with here. You know what? We’re going right into the categories. Let’s hope somebody makes it to the party.
- Spirit Journey Formation Anniversary – Birthday music. Let’s all have some cake. Or play music by Cake. This one’s straightforward.
- It’s My Party – Include music by artists with birthdays in February or music videos that include or refer to notable persons born on February 11th
- Age of Aquarius – RVS was born under the sign of Aquarius. It’s an Air sign, ruled by Uranus. Also born in 2017, the Chinese Year of the Cock. Blowing air up your anus with cocks. Says it all for our mission statement, really.
At the RVS birthday blowout, you get a gift! Thanks to all of those of you who read, comment, and generously avoid reporting us to the authorities for our often tasteless and offensive content.
spootyjim: Top billed is the guest of honor for winning the Breakthrough Bonus last week. You got a mention on the cake. I hope you weren’t expecting any monetary compensation, because our budget is literally zero. Even our photo editor is freeware. Here’s the new birthday song: The Creature Thus Be Formed.
pfluffy: Happy Birthday by the Ting Tings. When you posted on the iGeneration a couple of weeks ago, I couldn’t help but reflect upon how lucky I was that two of my kids were small when Yo Gabba Gabba was on. Best kid show ever, really.
Santino: You get gay frogs.
WVR: Happy birthday to Sheryl Crow! I’m not interested in playing any of her songs, but here she is with Kid Rock.
Zurvan: Straight-up #1 with Stevie Wonder.
Grendel: Time for cake….and sodomy.
Speaking of sore butts, the only ones invited to this party were those who hung out with us last week. You can still crash the party today and add a song in the comments. Last one in gets the piece of cake with GG Allin’s ass…and those smears aren’t fudge.
