Axis propaganda slandering UK women -- A young British woman gets dressed after a night of passion with an American soldier during World War II, above the words 'While you are away', August 1944. The rest of the caption reads 'The Yanks are 'lease-lending' your women. Their pockets full of cash and no work to do...'. A German flyer aimed at demoralising English troops in France.

Dragon heads on the bow of the viking ships were supposed to protect against the evil spirits of the sea. Whatever, it's art.

"His axe could fell a castle wall, and it's yours to aim for a mere princely sum." The barbarian can wield any one-handed weapon in the offhand and treat it as an off-hand weapon. In addition, once per round, if the barbarian's attack bloodies an enemy, the barbarian can shift 2 squares as a free action. Each enemy adjacent to the barbarian at the end of this shift grants combat advantage to the barbarian until the end of the barbarian's next turn.

This....doesn't really look like a dragon to me. It is a terrifying image though so I can see why the Vikings included images of dragons on the front of their ships. It was a way to intimidate their opponents.
