Four long wooden ships with snake-like things sticking off the fronts of them docked this morning about 150 miles from Washington D.C. The ships were carrying a total of 40 Scandinavian Vikings on horseback. The Vikings quickly rode toward the Capitol and stormed it. They were donned in bronze helmets and chain mail vests and were armed with wooden shields, battle axes, and 3 foot long tarnished swords. They rode about the Capitol knocking over mailboxes, shouting at elderly people, and teasing dogs. After about 45 minutes of this tomfoolery, the Vikings rode back to their ships and set sail for their Northern home. They said very little during their reign of terror, but promised they’d return and do it again if President Obama doesn’t send them 200 dollars each via Western Union by next Saturday. President Obama has not said whether or not he’ll be sending the money, but he said the whole event has made him very, very angry. “I’m mad, and I don’t care who knows about it,” he said.
