Loved the Henry VIII sketch, however the witches one didn't mention the ducking stool, or how cats were often bricked up in the wall of a house - I don't think they were sent to prison (or was that last bit just tongue in cheek?:rolleyes :)

With all these mashup titles going on, I thought this was fun! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiEvcuVeA64
Les proz e les vassals
Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

'The Brave and the valiant
Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Hehe. I've seen this before too.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
