Blondes banned from museum’s Viking exhibitionMay 23rd, 2009 - 4:41 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 23 (ANI): In a bid to prove that being blonde has nothing to do with Vikings, a museum featuring an exhibition on the Norse warriors has banned fair-headed people from visiting it.
As per York Dungeon bosses, the Norsemen were largely Redheads, and fair-haired people descended from Saxons-the invaders’ enemies.
The bosses are so caught up with the whole thing that they have waived this weekend’s entrance fee for reds, while brunettes are allowed to visit though they will have to pay the fee.
“Anyone with red hair is likely from Viking stock,” the Sun quoted historian Mark Graham as saying.
But the move has not been met with favour.
“It’s a bad move. There are more blondes around here than redheads,” blonde local Anne Parker, 36, said. (ANI)
