Albion is at it again! Great stuff guys! My first reaction (before I realized the date) was D'OH! Laughing Out Loud

I also had no idea that a steady diet of cigarettes and beer would make one so buff, but Hollywood calls... Razz

Now to work on the dance of the Regent...

I particularly like 'Professor Montant Taureaumerde'.

And, of course, the man being hit in the face with a lily. That made my week.

I felt my bowels go to water and exclaimed"That can't be! I haven't gotten my order yet!!!"......yeah, I'm a bit gullable. The article was great. Thanks for the laugh, Albion.

Now if they really wanted to FOOL US they would post something like this on the first of June or something and write
April's Fool in really small type at the end: Might have the unfortunate side effect of a lot of people cancelling their orders. Razz

O.K. that is my April's fool joke right back at you. Razz Laughing Out Loud

The part that killed me was that I read that article at 2300 (or 11 PM if you prefer) on 31 March . And I'm in Germany, 8 hours (normally only 7, but we set our clocks ahead last weekend, and you guys do so this weekend) ahead of Wisconsin! WTF?!

After I caught that sentance, I was in no way surprised to see the "original" execution of the Amalekite! Eek!

Messer-manuscripts with lilys has got some real Monty Python-feel to it - nice to see the old, great and dry humor never evaporates.

If Mike is the one that has gone down hill, maybe you need the rum and Coke? Laughing Out Loud I must admit that, in my household, it's my wife that could justify a drink, not me, since it looks more like I had our three kids, rather than she Eek! .

I'm not sure what you consider not able to speak a language, Greyson, 'cause you have the translation down pat Wink

And I've got to say my favourite part of the article had to be the "original" Bayeux Tapestry. Gotta love the image of mail-clad men running around & blowing each other away with semi-automatics Laughing Out Loud All in all, yet another quality product from Albion Razz

Thanks for the laugh guys! Razz I was especially intrigued to learn about King Harold's actual death by a semi-automatic "handgonne." Laughing Out Loud
