Archaeologists working on the newly discovered viking burial ship in Scotland are intrigues by pictograms that they have found that are apparently dedicated to a previously unknown god "Ikea".
The images begin with what looks like all the parts of the boat individually along with some screws and a hex key. All the parts are then shown miraculously coming together in ways that defy logic and some of the more basic laws of physics.
"From what we can gather, he seems to be the god of ply wood and little white plastic bits to cover the heads of screws." sais Nigel Nerdly speaking from the dig "What we really can't fathom is why the vikings have chosen to communicate with vague drawings when we know from other documents that they had an advanced written language that would have been far clearer..."
There is some speculation that the funeral boat may actually have been intended to be a wardrobe but the original purpose was abandoned and the builder instead chose to shut himself inside and set it on fire in a final act of desperation.
