Another Damned Medievalist delivers her spiel.
i'm really pleased that I get this.
ROFL. Tell me, does he get to forge any alliances?
I think he might ... LOL!
What book was it? What book was it???? How dare you leave us hanging!!!!
OK -- I'm sooo not answering that. It would be wrong. More wrong than deriving fun from the quote.
Arrrggghhh! Okay, be that way. I doubt if it was intentional, anyway. Martel didn't get the nickname until a few centuries later, and in my experience, a lot of medievalists don't write with such a wry sense of humor. They can be funny in real life, but God forbid any humor gets into their books.
Yeah, it's a fascinating convention/genre restriction--academic writing has to suck...
Greg -- I e-mailed you the name of the book
