Vi-King of Comedy

The year is 865 and the place is a small hamlet in East Anglia. Chief Erik has led a band of Vikings on an invasion. It's all going swimmingly - the Vikings are forcing themselves on local women, stealing whatever they want, and burning down the locals' huts and barns.

Then Chief Erik sees one of his men doing something a bit odd. Amongst all the chaos, he's clearing up leaves from the hamlet's streets.

"I say Ivar," says Chief Erik, "What are you doing there? Why aren't you forcing local women to have sex with you? Why aren't you stealing the local men's treasures and burning down their huts?"

"Oh..." replied Ivar, a look of realisation appearing on his face. "I thought you told us to rake a village."
