Jenguard: Viking Mascot

Field review by the editors.

Jensen Beach, Florida

A former fiberglass mascot of the Viking Carpet chain, the 18-foot-tall Norseman was brought to Jensen Beach Elementary School in the early 1970s and named, "Jenguard."

Jenguard was toppled by teenage morons in 1985 and again in 2013, but quickly restored both times. The school is quite fond of their mascot. A cheery mural of children in a Viking longship -- brandishing pencils instead of battleaxes -- decorates an outer wall of the building.
