    'Spiking Viking' to appear on a segment of The Daily Show

    'Spiking Viking' horns in on plight of 'Packalope'

    Jon Stewart's fake news show will scratch a very real itch when it taps into the Minnesota Vikings-Green Bay Packers rivalry with the help of one of the Vikes' biggest fans.

    Patrick Olsen, a k a "The Spiking Viking," whose purple Mohawked hair and gold face paint make him a fixture at Vikings home games, will appear on a segment of "The Daily Show," scheduled to air tonight.

    The rivalry attracted attention from the hit Comedy Central show following news reports about new antiterrorism rules at Green Bay's Lambeau Field.

    Superfan Larry Primeau, a k a the Packalope, has been forced to shed his trademark Pack helmet with its deer antlers because new stadium protocols specifically mention "antlers" as potential weapons.

    In preparing a spoof on the antlers ban, show producers contacted Olsen, the midday DJ on KXXR Radio (93.7 FM) when he's out of costume. "They wanted me to play on the fact that Vikings and Packers fans aren't very fond of each other," Olsen said.

    'Packalope'Star TribuneHe happily obliged. "I told some Packer jokes, I said the town of Green Bay smelled bad and just ripped on Green Bay fans."

    Olsen was interviewed by "Daily Show" correspondent Rob Corddry, who this year lampooned efforts to remove Peanuts statues from St. Paul's Rice Park. Olsen said Corddry was "even more funny in person than he is on TV."


    Give 'em hell Spike!

    That's awesome! I hope he doesn't get turned away at the door for having "spiked" hair.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    it was on last night (thursday the 22nd) there will probably be re runs though.

    it was sort of funny. it was about how packer fans cannot wear antlers on thier heads to the games. spiking viking was like "thats stupid" and the interviewer was like "so they should be able to wear them?" and spiking viking was like "no, its stupid they wear those. dorks."
