Greetings to the Merry Pranksters,
My Lady Alianora has sent me yet another humourous missive regarding our
friend, Beowulf. I just had to share this one as well, and it is a bit more
on topic than the Star Trek one. No, really.
> Subj: Problems in Dating Beowulf
> One of the topics I usually set as a research paper for my OE students
> is "Discuss some Problems in Dating Beowulf". Normally I italicize
> "Beowulf" but this year I got lazy. One of my students served up the
> following as part of her paper:
> TOP 10 PROBLEMS OF DATING BEOWULF
> 10. Hangs out with dragons
> 9. Chain mail rips up bedsheets
> 8. Throws his swords around apartment
> 7. Wakes up in the middle of the night screaming "She's gonna eat me!"
> 6. Carriea a long knife to compensate for feelings of inadequacy.
> 5. Only washes twice a year.
> 4. Experiences mead-induced delusions of grandeur and heroism.
> 3. Smells like Grendel breath
> 2. Freezer full of dragon meat.
> 1. Leaves the toilet seat up.
> For your amusement. She also turned in a very good paper on the topic.
> Can you tell term is nearly over? One more day of lectures.
