Re: Henry's Ankles

M'Lord Henry!!!!
For shame.
How can you fault Lord Leifr for not having his wonderful song trapped 
by being written down on paper, when he is following the Correct [TM] 
period procedure of passing down his wonderous verse through Oral 
Tradition [TM]? :)

Oh, by the way, you've been spelling halbard wrong.  It should be 
HallBard [TM]. ;}

Dibs? Dibs? Aw c'mon Leifr. How unsporting! Claiming an award for a song
you haven't even written yet.

Earlier, you claimed it was popular. And you hadn't even written it.
Now, you lay dibs on an award for it? And it still isn't written?

In light of all that, I could claim I already heard it and that it
isn't the sort of song a norseman would sing. In fact, I can truthfully
say that I have been unable to get a single norseman to even listen to
the thing all the way through. At this rate, you are gonna get kicked
right out of the viking halbard guild.

Ianthe? You are well known in academic circles for your linguistic advances
in Henrish. Further, this whole "ankles" thing is Your Fault <tm>. Can
you rescue me from Leifr's vaporsong?
