God of Wooden Furniture

Last year at one of the Viking Markets, Einarr and I fooled a member of the audience big time. He asked us about the deities of the Vikings and so we started talking about Odin, Freya, Loki and quickly, and with a certain matter-of-factness, we also included the God Ikea, the god of wooden furniture.

The gentleman was quite surprised. "Really?" he exclaimed "I had no idea Ikea was a god!" Both Einarr and I nodded in a very serious scholarly way. "Wow, thanks!" he said and wandered off still shaking his head in amazement.


Guess what I found on the Net yesterday...
