Sometimes They Caption Themselves

We never wondered how stray fighters and other innocents got returned to their custodians when they got lost without having things like Post-it notes to stick to the little guys ...

… but I think we have a good idea now.

I would probably pee my pants if I encountered this guy on the field

Of course, to be fair, I would probably pee my pants if I encountered anyone on the field, and that's why I'm not a fighter.

I know, right? Plaid with an embroidered gryphon? No way is that period!

Historical Accuracy Fail, on failblog!

The fact that failblog posted this pretty much justifies the entirety of this blog. FTW!

I got this photo from Flickr user the4v3ry, however he credits it to Sir Gaston.

Sadly, Yelling "Light, Milord!" Won't Get You Out Of This One Anymore

A time to worry:

Thanks again to Beothuk, who nails it ... and nearly us, but the looks of things.

This is always my fear at demos

Medieval Day Fail by Flickr user kwijibot, captioned by Factorial.

I seem to end up talking on my cell phone every time I do a public demo ("Are you here? I'm at ____") and it's precisely my fear of someone snapping a photo of me just like this one that motivates me to hide when I do it. So I have the utmost sympathy for this guy! Still, you have to admit it's hilarious.

Homage to scantily clad women, part II

Admit it: you don't always care that the garb isn't authentic

The looking is free!

Maybe this can karmically balance out the snark of Part I of this series.

Homage to scantily clad women, part I

This is totally what people wore in the Middle Ages, right?
