Viking Women Dressed Like Dirty Dirty Whores

Supposedly the dressed "provocatively."

The new finding reveals instead that a Viking woman's dress consisted of a single piece of fabric with an opening in the front. A pair of brooches, or clasps, was situated on top of the breasts to accentuate the wearer's figure.

"It's easy to imagine that the Christian church had certain reservations about clothing that accentuated the breasts in this way and, what's more, exposed the under shift in front," Larsson said. "It's also possible that this clothing was associated with pre-Christian rituals and was therefore forbidden" once Christianity became established.

Okay, imagining a buxom blond Viking woman with her breasts spilling out over the top of her dress? Yeah, me too. Now here's the photo the story runs with the picture to illustrate this, and yes, I'm dead fucking serious this is the photo:


Hot, huh?

Now here is the picture that should have run.

You dorks know who painted that, right? You have two guesses and really one ought to do it.

Here's that other guy, by the way, who seems to prefer axes to tits.
