Here piggy piggy piggy 

Strom didn't tell me about this at MOBapalooza, but I found on his site a Minnesota Piglet Book full of stupid stuff the government spends money on. My favorite entry is the last one, a Viking ship I've driven by in Moorhead.
For heaven�s sake�a state-funded Viking ship?!?! The last time the Vikings were paid off, by English kings in the ninth and tenth centuries, the Vikings took their money and fought them anyway. It looks like history is repeating itself, as the government (taxpayers) is paying tribute to the Vikings once again with a poor return on that investment.
I doubt the Vikings pay off this Sunday, either.
