You Know Who's Awesome?

Sir Orfeo is awesome. Whodawha? Sir Orfeo, the star of a medieval Breton Lai written in Middle English. You know why he’s awesome? Because the anonymous poet who wrote it took the classical Orpheus myth, modernized it for his time and threw in a creepy fairy kingdom instead of Hades.

And you know what’s crazier? Orfeo has a happy ending. Better still? It works.

Enjoy your mind being blown. Unless of course you’ve already read the poem.

That’s all I’ve got for tonight. Got a free trial to World of Warcraft that I’m checking out for the sake of smashing evil in the face with a hammer, because I roll with paladins.
