Ive been listening to The Mabinogion. Wild stuff, about the days of King Arthur. Whoever wrote it had some imagination. One part was about this young kid, he wanted to marry this king's daughter and the girl told him to see her father and get his permission. That is, if the father didnt kill him first. The kid went to King Arthur's court and demanded that Arthur help him or he would spread the word around that Arthur was a jerk and a butt-wipe. Arthur says thats cool, you can have anything from me you want except Guenivere and Excalibur. The kid agrees to that so Arthur sent Sir Kay with him to help him out. They go to the girls old man, he tries to kill them with poison darts, but the kid throws them back and sticks the old guy in the leg, the breast, and the eye. The old guy starts bitching and moaning how he wont be able to walk right, and so on and curses the smith who made the darts, the fire that heated the forge, etc. He finally tells the kid if he does all this impossible stuff he can marry his daughter, like pulling the beard out of a giant, finding a guy who was kidnapped as a baby 30 years before, getting some kind of a special plant that only grows in one place, pulling 50 spears out of the back of a giant salmon, all kinds of crazy stuff. The kid says, no problem, peice of cake. They go through all these adventures with no problem. I havent finished listening to all of it yet, probably finish it tomorrow. Hope the kid gets the girl, and shes worth all the crap he has to go through. Whoever thought of this stuff must have been on some kind of weird dope.
