News: 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.”
