Q: Why is the Metrodome always covered in copies of the local newspapers?
A: Because every year the Vikings look good on paper.
Dumb-Ass and Dumb-Asser...
A Vikings fan and a Bears fan are walking along the road when the Vikings fan sees something shiny, so he stops and picks up what turns out to be a mirror. He looks in it and says to his surprise, 'Hey, I know that guy!'
The Bears fan takes it away and says while gazing into it, 'Of course you do you dumb-ass, it's me'.

Did you hear that Dick Clark has asked the Vikqueens WR Troy Williamson to attend this years festivities in Times Square?
Apparently, they need help from someone experienced in "dropping the ball"!

|In a school just outside Minneapolis, a first grade teacher explained to her class that she is a Vikings Fan. She asked her students to raise their hands if they are Vikings fans too. Not really knowing what a Vikings fan is, but wanting to be liked by their teacher, their hands all fly into the air. However, there is one exception. A little boy named Billy has not gone along with the crowd.|
The teacher asks him why he has decided to be different. "Because I am not a Vikings fan." says Billy. "Then," asks the teacher, "what are you?" Billy says "I am a proud Green Bay Packers fan!"
The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She asks Billy why he is a Packers fan. "Well, my Mom and Dad are Packers fans so I'm a Packers fan, too," Billy responds.
The teacher is now angry. "That's no reason," she says loudly. "What if your Mom was a moron, and your dad was an idiot?
Billy smiled and said, "Then I'd be a Vikings Fan."

|A bartender in Wisconsin is sitting behind the bar on a typical day, when the door bursts open and in come four exuberant Viking fans. They come up to the bar, order five bottles of champagne and ten glasses, take their order over and sit down at a large table. The corks are popped, the glasses are filled and they begin toasting and chanting, "51 days, 51 days, 51 days!" Soon, three more Viking fans arrive, take up their drinks and the chanting grows."51 days, 51 days, 51 days!" Two more Viking fans show up and soon their voices are joined in raising the roof. "51 days, 51 days, 51 days!" Finally, the tenth Viking fan comes in with a picture under his arm. He walks over to the table, sets the picture in the middle and the table erupts.|
|Up jumps the others, they begin dancing around the table, exchanging high-fives, all the while chanting "51 days, 51 days, 51 days!" The bartender can't contain his curiosity any longer, so he walks over to the table. There in the center is a beautifully framed children's puzzle of Ragnar, the Vikings Mascot. When the frenzy dies down a little bit, the bartender asks one of the Viking fans, "What's all the chanting and celebration about?" The fan who brought in the picture pipes in, "'Cuz we've never won a SuperBowl, everyone thinks that Viking fans are dumb-asses and they make fun of us. So, we decided to set the record straight. Ten of us got together, bought that puzzle and put it together.|

The winning design for the Minnesota quarter was submitted by Sven Petersen and Ole Johanson of Hibbing, Minnesota. Sven commented, "Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and nickel together keeps jamming the coin-operated devices."
A real WI Quarter as compared to the newly recalled MN Quarter.

|With the high rate of attacks on women in secluded parking lots, especially during evening hours, the Minneapolis City Council has established a "Women Only" parking lot at the Mall of America. Even the parking lot attendants are exclusively female so that a comfortable and safe environment is created for patrons. Below is the first picture available of this world-first "women-only" parking lot in Minnesota.|

|A Chicago Bear fan, a Minnesota Viking fan and a Green Bay Packer fan were all in Saudi Arabia, sharing a smuggled crate of booze. All of a sudden Saudi police rushed in and arrested them. The mere possession of alcohol is a severe offense in Saudi Arabia, so for the terrible crime, they were sentenced to death! However, it was a Saudi national holiday the day their trial finished, and the extremely benevolent Sheik decided they could be released after receiving just 20 lashes each of the whip. As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheik suddenly said, "It's my first wife's birthday today, and she has asked me to allow each of you one wish before your whipping."|
The Bears fan was first in line (he drank the least), so he thought about this for a while and then said, "Please tie a pillow to my back." This was done, but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. The Bears fan had to be carried away crying like a baby.
The Viking fan was next up (he almost finished an entire fifth by himself), and after watching the scene, said "All Right! Please fix two pillows on my back." But even two pillows could only take 15 lashes before the whip went through, sending the Viking fan out crying like a little girl.
|The Packer fan was the last one up (he had finished off the crate). The Sheik turned to him and said, "You support the greatest team in the world. Your city and fans are the greatest. For this, you may have two wishes!" Thanks, your most Royal highness," the Packer fan replies. "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not 20, but 100 lashes."|
"Not only are you an honorable man, you are also very brave," the Sheik says with an admiring look on his face. "If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. And your second wish? What is it to be?", the Sheik asks.
"Tie the Viking fan to my back."

A helpless man, wearing a Vikings jersey was struggling frantically to free himself from the jaws of a 25 foot Muskie. As the Pope watched horrified, a speedboat came by with three men wearing Green Bay Packer jerseys. One quickly fired a harpoon into the Muskies' side. the other two reached out and pulled the blue, semiconscious Viking fan from the water. Then using their long clubs, the three beat the huge Muskie to death and hauled it into the boat.
Immediately the Pope shouted and summoned them to him, "I give you my blessing for your brave actions. I had heard that there were some bitter hatreds between the Packers and the Vikings, but now I have seen with my own eyes that this is not true."
As the Pope drove off, the harpooner asked his buds, "Who was that?"
"It was the Pope," one replied. "He's in direct contact with God and has access to all of God's wisdom."
"Well," the harpooner said, "he may have access to wisdom, but he doesn't know anything about fishing for Muskies !! Is the bait holding up OK or do we need to get another one?"

|I thought we were playing pretty good ball in December even though we lost two games on the last play essentially � the Chicago game where we had the interception in the end zone and the Arizona game where we enabled Green Bay to have a parade.�|

|From the Packers.Com website, "Letters To Lee Remmel" article.|
Lee: I have been reading your comments for almost sixty years and I am convinced that nobody in any professional sport knows more about his/her team than you! What is your favorite Hank Gremminger story? I am a Green Bay native but my wife and I now live in a house built by Hank. Also, Hank was our County Commissioner when he died a few years ago. - John (Weatherford, TX)
This isn't the actual photo of Hank scoring his TD against the Vikings, but both he and Herb Adderly will be forever remembered here at Packer Palace for snatching victory away from Minnesota Vikings.
|LR: John, my favorite story about Hank Gremminger involves the most productive play of his 10-year Green Bay career. The circumstances were: The Packers, playing the Vikings at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minn., on October 13, 1963, held a tenuous 30-28 lead with 2 minutes remaining in the game. But the Vikings were then at the Green Bay 3-yard line and lining up for a "gimmee" -- and presumably game-winning -- field goal by Fred Cox. Fortuitously, Packers cornerback Herb Adderley swept through to block the kick and Hank alertly pounced upon the loose football and raced 60 yards to a decisive touchdown -- the only touchdown, incidentally, of his NFL career. Jerry Kramer kicked the extra point and the Packers prevailed, 37-28.|
We would be amiss if we didn't include a picture of Herb, check out the Sports Attic for more.

One year, neither the Packers nor the Vikings made the post season playoffs. It seemed so unusual that the management of both teams got together and decided that there should be some sort of competition between the two teams, because of their great rivalry. So, they decided on a week-long ice fishing competition. The team that catches the most fish at the end of the week wins.
So on a cold northern Wisconsin lake they began their contest.
The first day after 8 hours of fishing the Packers had caught 100 fish and the Vikings had 0.
At the end of the second day the Packers had caught 200 fish and the Vikings 0.
That evening the Vikings coach got his team together and said,"I suspect some kind of cheating is taking place." So the next morning he dressed one of his players in green and gold and sent him over to the Packer's camp to act as a spy.
At the end of the day he came back to report to the coach. The coach asked "Well, how about it, are they cheating?"
"They sure are!" the player reported. "They're cutting holes in the ice."

|According to Google's Language Translator, the following image and link reference that was found at the website Indigo is in Portuguese and translates roughly as follows:|
Minnesotta Vikings em Banho Maria.
Apresentando agora os adora ve is Minnesota Vikings em banho Maria.
Minnesota Vikings in Bath Maria.
Presenting is Minnesota Vikings in bath adores them now ve Maria.
Now, allow us here at Packer Palace to do a re-translation, just to make this much more clearer for all of you in Cheddar Land and that brown wasteland that's Minnesota:
The Vikings, as usual, end their season prematurely by "taking a bath" in the most important game of their year, which results in them missing the playoffs, (and lets the Packers in) and see their chances of ever winning a Superbowl decrease from Slim and None, to Zero, and Maria, who appears to be already dating a Cardinal, is Hot Hot Hot!

|There were three football fans walking towards the Football Hall of Fame when all of a sudden one of them noticed a leg sticking out of the bushes. They moved closer and and noticed that it was a dead naked woman. |
Out of respect for the woman the Bears fan took off his cap and set it on her right breast. Then out of respect to the woman the Packers fan took off his hat and set it on her left breast. Last but not least the Vikings fan took off his hat and set it on her crotch.
Shortly after that the police showed up and the sheriff started his inspection. He picked up the Bears cap and put it back down and jotted down a few notes. Then he looked under the Packers cap and put it back down and jotted down a few notes. Then the sheriff looked under the Vikings cap and put it back down. Then he picked it back up again and put it back down. And he did it again.
The Vikings fan got upset and asked the sheriff why he kept looking under his cap? The sheriff said "I can't help it, every time I see a Vikings cap I'm... I'm just used to seeing an asshole underneath it."

|It's the first day of school and the teacher thought she'd get to know the kids by asking them their name and what their father does for a living.|
The first little girl says: "My name is Mary and my Daddy is a postman."
The next little boy says: "I'm Andy and my Dad is a mechanic."
Then one little boy says: "My name is Johnny and my Father is a striptease dancer in a cabaret for gay men."
The teacher gasps and quickly changes the subject, but later in the school yard the teacher approaches Johnny privately and asks if it was really true that his Dad dances nude in a gay bar.
He blushed and said, "No, I'm sorry I said that. My Dad plays football for the Vikings and I was just too embarrassed to say so."
