|Waterloo was the second bash. We should have done it at Agincourt.|
Been there, done that, bought the tapestry...(well, I've seen the reproduction in Reading, at least)
Anyroad, thanks for the update on the French team, Louis!*
*I will arrive in UK on March 24th. Beer offer still standing!
I've seen the Bayeux Tapestry in Bayeux a few times, bloody marvellous. Luckily
Guillaume le Bâtard William the Bastard Conquerer was English*, so we won the match battle in reality. The tapestry, of course, shows this.
On the topic of beer: Yes. I've heard good things. Never touch the stuff myself you understand. It might be time to give it a try.
* He was King of England therefore the epitome of Englishness, and thus retroactively English in perpetuity for ever and ever. Despite an unfortunate accident of birth where he was spawned in some foreign Norman hellhole to French people, the power of being King of England, and therefore chosen by God (who is also English**), acted backwards in time to render his birthplace a piece of Glorious Albion and his parents temporarily English. Of course they reverted to being Foreign, and therefore disgusting, shortly afterwards. Hope this helps.
** The bible is written in English after all and was translated by King James himself, who was English (and in no way Scottish or Irish). All previous languages the bible was written in were rendered English by a similar process of Kingly Retroactive Englishness, as described above.***
*** Incidentally, this also means the Americans and sundry Colonials are also English, they just don't admit it because they are ashamed of drifting from the True Path of Righteous Englishness. Foreigners are failed Englishmen and should stop mucking about with their heathen tongues and ways and shape up. Some of them don't even wear spats! Horror of horrors!
