JUST PUTTING IT OUT THERE

If anybody could appreciate my idea for "National Eat Like A Viking Day", it's you Dave.  Anyone who could turn Talk Like A Pirate Day into a national phenomenon has no need of The Force or help of Kathleen Sebelius to get this thing rolling. 

Some background:  the pipes froze at work and so we couldn't run the dishwasher this week; we were out of forks and spoons, nothing left but knives.  Rather than eat leftover ravioli with my fingers and get tomato sauce all over my keyboard, I elected to use one of the knives and it was a wonderful experience!  Something primordial awakened when I stabbed that pasta/meat(?) product.  The urge to chew with my mouth open, wipe the excess sauce on my sleeve, and belch loudly was uncontrollable.

I know Hallmark probably won't be on board with this, but maybe the fine folks at Oneida could be persuaded to help promote Eat Like A Viking Day and get the word out.  Commemorative table knives with horned helmets on the ends?  Sponsoring a lutefisk eating contest? The company logo proudly displayed on that Swedish Chef muppet's apron?  

Low profile government workers like me have limited audience access (and appeal); I have complete faith in your experience with these kind of things and thank you in advance for your efforts.
