I have never heard anyone say "I'm a viking" in regards to being good at anything.

Wow, I'll be totally honest with you. I never even considered the second option. I just always took it to mean he excels at sleep!

Seriously? Is this a thing? Seems this was once a big debate but I have honestly never heard something like that or considered it to be an expression of excelling at things.

Gradius II! That's where I'm a viking!

(B, obviously. Well, I dunno. Could you contextualise this quote? Are the other characters talking about things they excel at?)

I... don't know! I wasn't aware of a debate, and though I've quoted it for ages with my friends, we never discussed the meaning.

Yeah, I never thought of the second option either. Here, here, Klaty! I just assumed it was like saying you're the "king" of something.

2:32:31 PM Joseph: wow, damn

2:32:41 PM Joseph: I've taken it as the first
2:32:46 PM Canaan: really?

You are not alone, Moldi, I always took it as something he excelled at as well. Seriously never even considered it as him being an actual viking. I mean, it's Ralph Wiggum, kid says weird shit.
