    [size=18px]Trouble for Miss Viking[/size]
    Controversy simmered in Poulsbo, Washington, a US town founded by Norwegian immigrants in the late 1800s, after this year's Miss Viking turned out to be untraditional.

    Many Poulsbo locals were shocked that Jasmine Campbell's appointment as Viking princess created waves.

    Jasmine Campbell, 17, won the honor on the strength of a combination of talent and a successful audition, but her blend of African and Latin American blood caused some temperatures to rise.

    The pageant organizers decided to go public after receiving a series of offensive, racist e-mails in reaction to Campbell's appointment, including sentiments like 'How dare you put an African American in there?'. The incident attracted attention after it was publicized by the Seattle Times.

    Campbell, who is adopted and grew up with a Swedish-Norwegian mother, has top grades, sings in a choir and choreographs dance for her church. She wowed the jury with her audition performance on lutefisk, which included this joke, delivered in a well-rehearsed Norwegian accent:

    "What do you do if you have rats in your house? You throw lutefisk under your porch. In a couple of weeks, you'll be rid of the rats, but you'll have 10 to 12 Norwegians living under your house."

    After the story became known via the Seattle Times the residents of Poulsbo have made a strong show of support for their 'Viking queen', and police believe racist groups from outside the tranquil town are behind the trouble.

    Lloyd Cleven, a former president of the Sons of Norway Lodge, told the newspaper that he and his fellow members would like to see one thing - Campbell trying lutefisk for herself.

    Campbell said that she would be more than happy to sample the legendary Norwegian dish of cod pickled in lye, noting that she had already won an Xbox by eating an entire pig's tongue at camp.

    PP.O Viking Queen Mother is higher than Miss Viking.
