Today's Fact About Vikings

From Sasha Kopf:

Today’s Fact About Vikings

The word “freckle” comes from an old Scandinavian word for… freckle.

The more you say “freckle” over and over, the funnier it sounds. This was probably true for the Vikings as well, which may be why there weren’t many Viking warriors named Ragnar the Freckled.

I was reading your post, laughing really loud and thinking "freckle" over and over again until my mind went blank. Then one thing and one thing alone entered my mind: "feckless freckle".
