19Modern Phrases Being Used That Haven't Been Invented Yet
Fans of Vikings tune in each week for the compelling storylines and the heart-stopping action. However, audiences also came for the unexpected humor and meme-worthy lines from the series. In season 3, one very quotable line came from Ragnar in the episode “Warrior’s Fate”. Speaking to Floki about the
passing of Torstein, he ended his speech by saying, “And in the meantime Floki, shut your face.”
Fans may not have realized that this phrase and a few other modern phrases used on the show are historically inaccurate. There are no records of the use of the phrase “shut your face” until well into the 19th century. Despite the inaccuracy, it’s still a great quote!
