Renaissance Redux

Be warned....LOOOONG POST.

Mental Poo turned a year old on September 14th.

There was a party.

I didn't invite any of you, because cake is too expensive.

This is directly related to the War in Iraq (where imported Chinese cake batter is painted with lead by-products derived from oil), and I didn't want to start a political discussion that didn't involve Photoshopped pictures of a nude Sarah Palin.

(I'm going to get hits on this site just for typing "nude Sarah Palin")

Lesbian. Bukkake.

Lesbian Bukkake Sarah Palin Nude.

Wow....even MORE hits. I'm just getting greedy.


...this being late September, it's time again for the local Renaissance Festivals.

On September 17, 2007, I wrote a post about my experience with my family at King Richard's Faire.

This post remains - to this day - my ONLY post without a single f*cking comment.

Not one.

However, in it's defense, my blog was 3 days old...

....I didn't "do pictures" (except from the typical Penthouse centerfolds)...

...and I had one reader.

I'm including myself in this count.

We'll be heading to this event again this the interim...

Please enjoy "Renaissance Man" - remastered for your enjoyment.

With pictures.

Of a nude Sarah Palin lesbian orgy.

I can't wait to see my stats after this.

Renaissance Man

My kids like knights and princesses.

I have a boy and a girl, so this works out well.

(yes, the boy likes knights and the girl likes princesses...whilst daddy likes nights with princesses...but I digress).

So the wife and I decided to pack up the kids yesterday and take them to King Richard's Faire in Carver, MA.

Carver, Massachusetts motto: Where the F*CK are we?!?

This is a yearly event where you can relive the days of merry old England, complete with knights and wenches...

...right after you f*cking pay $25 per adult and $14 per child to gain thy royal rip-off entrance.

My kids were pretty psyched about this (going to the fair...not the admission price...because that sucked ass).

I've been to this before, and it is actually pretty cool to visit every so often.

The key words here: "visit" and "every so often".

One lady told us that she would actually give us passes to come back the next weekend.

My wife and I looked at each other and said, "who would come here more than once a year?".

Then you walk in, and you discover the answer to this question.

Everywhere you look are people who have never played a sport in their life (although most would consider "Dungeons and Dragons" sport)...

...and bought hookers for their first sexual experience.

Personally, I don't fall into this category because I've never played Dungeons and Dragons.

(shout out here to "Ms. Wizzy" on 5th and Main in Revere)

One thing you realize when you walk through these things is that more than half the people there have actually dressed for it.

Now, I'm not talking kids dressing up in their plastic knight outfits...I'm talking GROWN PEOPLE - adults...some MORE than adults (say, 60-ish), wearing chainmail and carrying swords, and merry ol' grandma's hiking up and pushing their lengthy boobs up and out of a cinched up corset.

I love boobs popping out as much as the next guy..but I think most out-of-shape women feel that a renaissance fair is THE place to finally..FINALLY..wear a corset.

So they take their 400 pound bodies with their 25 pound boobs...mash them into a corset, then hire the neighbors and a small college moving company (college guys are the best, as they'll do anything if it involves boobs) to cinch the bejeesus out of the thing..and off they go.

The real problem with this visual is that although they look all hot and bosomy up top, they are STILL big women.

As such, the visage appears to look like those stress ball things you get from Spencer know, the ones you put in your hand and squish.

The part in your hand is fine, but the rest of the jelly inside has nowhere else to go but out the other ends.


Nasty stuff that jelly.

The majority of these people are goddamn certifiable freaks.

They talk in fake English accents...

Loser #1: "'Ello, guvnor! Fancy a bit o' ale?"

Loser #2: "What?"

they carry on conversations about mead and ale...

...and - here's the f*cking kicker:


Me: "I say there, my good man. Thine art a f*cking LOSER."

Early on, my son had his picture taken with a knight. He was dressed in full regalia from head to toe - very cool looking...

...armor, sword..the whole deal.

The knight took time to teach him the ways of chivalry, laws, how to properly shake hands with a knight...honestly, it was cool.

We thanked Sir Stainless Testicles and went on our merry way.

However, about an hour later, we actually see this guy sitting next to us in the stands at the joust.


He was a customer.

He didn't actually work there.

Sir Stainless Testicles, I now dub thee Sir OhMyGod YouAreSuchALoser.


One OTHER thing that confused me.

I saw two people dressed like Samurai.


I also saw some guy dressed in a turban with a big curvy sword.

I assume he was trying to be Aladdin.

Were they lost?

Did they not know that this was, like, kings and knights and shit?

Is this all they had in their closet...or was their knight outfit at the Royal Dry Cleaners getting thine stain out from last night's Holy Hot Pocket and this was all they had left?

I didn't get it.

Now, after you stare at enough bosoms popping out (HA! Like you can actually do that enough), you get hungry.

We packed along lunches, as I wasn't sure how well my kids would take to eating a roast pig or slaughtered Christian.

So the wife and I dug into traditional medieval fare.

(please note the traditional Old English spelling):

1) Ye Old Pepperoni Pizzae
2) Thine Divine Diete Pepsie
3) Her Majesty's Royal Onion Ringse you right back to the days of old.

Enough fried food that I should be fighting off little brown dragons for most of the day today.

Your labels...they're starting to give the actual posts a run for their money.

Slutalina the Fairy Whore looks like a friend of mine...was she playing a flute? (<---not a dick joke)

i am still torn on going to this..i have a girl and boy that would probably love it..but for the most part is sounds like an afternoon in hell....

Jen said...

Now THIS is the Moog that I love! I thought the map of Mass. with AllWeDoIsBumFuck, MA labeling Provincetown was enough to spray my monitor with my water, but little did I know that I'd be laughing out loud, tears pouring out of my eyes as I continued on! Holy crap that was a great post.

Next time, just buy the kids a knights and princesses game or some costumes or something and don't subject them to the losers of the world.

Next time just give the kids some candy and save yourself the $78.50

Thou shalt not make fun of my pasty white client base.

Nor shall you make fun of me not being able to mash any boob up out of my corset because I ain't got no boobages.

Sigh...Sir Stainless Testicles loves me for my intellect.

Enric Xicoy was not what I was expecting on your blog either. I went to uni with him.....I wonder if he remembers that crazy night, and following morning, at Bar Irati with S., J., and X. I mostly remember nibbling on a lot of sausage.....we call it Botifarra, makes it sound even more risqué, right??

LBluca77 said...

I forgot to tell you happy anniversary. You rock!!

Kellie said...

My favorite on the menu is Shepherd's Pye. Really? Pye? WTF?

A lot of my co-workers go to this every year and I haven't gone yet. This makes me definitely not want to go. I hate putting up w/ jackasses and it seems this place is chuck full of them.

Midleah: Slutalina is a dear dear friend of Whorepunzel. FYI.

March: Go. It's fun just to see the freaks.

Jen: Yeah - last year we spent damn near $60 on the knight/princess outfits for Halloween. I believe when Halloween finally came, they were a Power Ranger and that girl from High School Musical. Money well spent.

Lbluca: Yeah. Candy solves all problems. Wait til you have kids. The only thing it actually solves is the ability to field-test your stain resistance you bought for the couch.

Becky: I shalt make fun of whomever-thine I wanteth.

Meleah: Thanks! WHERE'S MY PRESENT?!?!?

txupi1007: wtf?!

lbluca #2: (see Meleah comment)

Kellie: You gotta go for the vast array of losers. Plus, you can probably get a good deal on having your computer fixed there as well. Enjoy the pye.

I am talking about the guy on the Google Image search, where you wrote "not what I was expecting" and circled him. Seriously, he has a nice sausage. I should know, I sampled I feel like booty calling him. It wouldn't surprise anyone, due to my status as public property for half of Barcelona.

We're doing best of material?

The Dancing Architect said...

Okay, so I've only been reading your posts for like, five days, but I still would like some cake.
Is this too demanding?

Oh, I don't care so much for marble cake...or sprinkles. Please just send a piece to my PO Box, thanks.

Malach the Merciless said...

Wow, had I know, I would of met you there, I live 20 minutes from there.

I do the best costume too. I dress completely in black, with a t-shirt that say "The Plague" and go around touching people.

Very dustyeth
Very hoteth
Laden with Losers
