I’m a Viking, not an Idiot

Today I got an e-mail from a white supremacist asking if I’d do a custom version of one of my many Scandinavian themed items in my etsy shop. I need not share his delightful failure in the basics of English grammar, but let’s just say the e-mail was deleted and the request ignored. I’m a […]
