    Didn’t there used to be a moat around the castle?

    re: 4my…

    Your comment caused me to have a mental image of the King chasing the panic-stricken Huns with a battleaxe and rodney and the rest of the knights watching in shock.

    Or they could pour the coffee on the Huns. Deadlier than boiling oil.(Which apparently is a Hollywood invention, heated sand was commonly poured on invading armies.)

    The moat monsters drank it.

    They had their coffee. Hunbucks must open pretty early.

    Aye AK and it’s a strong mug to match the strong mugs of those Huns impatiently waiting to storm the Fink’s castle.

    It evaporated — Global warming,you know.

    and @Bruno Zeigerts
    Hot sand was common, because it would get into the armor and hurt, but I’ve also heard of hot lead being used. Because of the time needed to heat it up to liquid state, probably not very often. It would be a lot more expensive too.

    honestly whats the point of my responding to your rsvp for invasion if you just come early…

    Thought that the Huns were open-field fighters rather than the type who used siege machines.

    -
    Unless they cure old age, that is.
    -
    The descendents won’t worry about it, for them the world will be the way it was when they were young and carefree.
    Just like we don’t remember the last Ice Age or even The Little Ice Age of 1500 to 1800, more or less.
    And that’s even assuming we or they don’t come up with a solution to reset the Earth’s surface thermostat. (nuclear winter is one unpleasant solution)

    The Huns in Id are a different set of Huns.
    Everything’s different in Id.

    The Huns are Id’s ubiquitous villains.(and rather anachronistic.) Historical accuracy is not the intent of this strip.(Not that Hollywood historical epics are 100% accurate.)
