The ‘Vikings‘ extras Dublin audition queue [100 metres from the Temple Bar pub] is as long as an old goat’s beard. Better it is to die in the queue with honour than to live in shame because you did not defend your place in the queue….

    I wonder if that’s really the queue for Viking Extras. Maybe those people have been hired just to stand there and be seen on the camera? Somebody should do a background check! I’ll get my lunch voucher.

      They pay and there is a lot of people unemployed at the moment so it kinda makes sense the queue is so long.

      I worked as an extra while I was in college – great pay, and most of the time you were sitting round in the sunshine having the craic with the lads, it’s a grand job altogether.

      I think every episode has been almost exactly the same.

      I tend to skip forward through the numerous drawn out shite bits, and then forget about it for weeks on end.

    Ireland has a lot of these jobless heavy metal dudes with bad facial hair and cheap cloths?

      I hope they don’t go berserk if they’re not successful, there’ll be horns and hair everywhere.

    Christ. Some of those photos. You can hear women’s legs snap shut within a 5 county radius.

            I got it yesterday but for some reason BS blocked my response which was:

            I remember the day that the Bear O’Shea
            Fell into a concrete stairs
            What the Horseface said, when he saw him dead
            Well, it wasn’t what the rich call prayers

          …He looked like a Viking so I gave him a teat
          O fair maiden, said he, could you not give me more?
          My bosom it swelled, so I opened my door
          Which is a metaphor plain for my own sweet vagine
          Oh my virginal viking your love was divine
          If I have just one note, twas a little bit brief
          You gave only one thrust before getting relief.
