RiotACT ancient history

Bill the Conquerer 1 December 2008 20

Little is known about the early days of RiotACT. Indeed, there is no mention of RiotACT before the Doomsday book, suggesting that it was the Normans that introduced RiotACT to the English speaking world in 1066.

Recently archaeological finds turned up some startling evidence to suggest that the Norman link could be fact.

And of course, after a hard day conquering, Normans often enjoyed a cold one.

[ED – not entirely sure about this one but we’d hate that hard work to go to waste.]

It was so vile, I didn’t even feel the need to punish the offal thread by sending him there, but I imagine many read it, and winced.

AH, the Offal Thread’s too good for you, sunshine. That was sooooo bad, and yet so good.

Yesssss! Bloodnut is on to something. A Riotact Beat the Drum comp, how excellent that would be! (and such a shame Triple J stopped doing it).

did he get some zierholz for that?

It makes me think maybe there’s merit in a Riot Act competition a la jjj’s old beat the drum comp.

I’m sure it would consist of pitifully lame entries – like the old bird man comps. but it’d be a laugh.

Maybe the Battle of the Overpriced Pizza??

Speaking of overpriced pizza, I saw a sign the other day stating that Zeffellis @ Dickson has re-opened. Has anyone eaten there yet?

Every time somebody mentions the Normans I think of Catweazle.

Catweazle…wow, I have not thought of that for years (and years…and years)

Henry, you deserve to be put in the stocks for that one.

It isn’t like the English or the Welsh ever ravaged anything. . .

I will just imagine the retaining wall in the background to the photograph is intended to represent a shrubbery and move on.

And Sicily, and Palestine.

Well the Normans hardly qualified as left wing or bleeding hearts, I mean, after ravaging the English and Welsh countryside for so many years 😉

He is almost the neo-conservatives poster boy.

Hopefully Sir RiotACT can protect us from the jealous hate journalists at the Canberra Times.

That is cool. Well done Bill! Now all we need are many more and we could have a great Riotact battle re-enactment. Maybe the Battle of the Overpriced Pizza??

Every time somebody mentions the Normans I think of Catweazle. They were a bit mean to him actually.

Looks like a lost leftover from an SCA event.

Is that a Griffith griffen rampant?

On second thoughts, nah, it can’t be … no wings.

Let this be a lesson for y’all…

Kids, do less drugs.

There is a school of thought that says if you view Leonardo’s Last Supper while standing on your head and squinting you’ll see the Beloved Disciple reading the RiotACT on a handheld device.

The Vatican, apparently, has taken extreme steps over the centuries to suppress this esoteric knowledge and… Excuse me a moment.

That’s odd. Why would an albino monk be knocking on my door…
