This is what I have to say about Dierdre of the Sorrows:
– She’s the sad version of boogyman stories. Instead of “be good and eat your carrots or the boogyman will snatch you” it’s “you may think you’re suffering and life’s unfair, but look at Dierdre. Be thankful you have it as good as you do!”
– What I find interesting about stories like Dierdre’s is the notion that it’s good to be beautiful, but only to a certain point. After that, it only causes tragedy and death. Basically, women are screwed.
– Take a moment and imagine just what it would be like to stick your head out of a moving chariot and bash it against a rock.
Can you say CRACK! SPLATTER!?
I can always count on the Irish for delicious gore.
