Blondes banned from exhibition
BLONDES have been banned from a museum’s Viking exhibition — because they would not be historically accurate.
York Dungeon bosses say the Norsemen were largely REDHEADS, and fair-haired people are descended from Saxons — the invaders’ enemies. They have waived this weekend’s entrance fee for reds.
Brunettes can visit but must pay. Historian Mark Graham said: “Anyone with red hair is likely from Viking stock.”
But blonde local Anne Parker, 36, said: “It’s a bad move. There are more blondes around here than redheads.”
