Leif Erikson — Badass of the Week
As always very funny to read!
How the #Vikings
I wasn't aware that they landed in (today's) Canada first and made 🍷 in Newfoundland
The Vikings picked a ton of grapes and made their own wine, which was huge for them because grapes don’t grow in Scandinavia, and usually any time the Vikings wanted a nice bottle of fine wine they had to burn a Frankish monastery to the ground and pry it from the hands of a Catholic monk.
