Did I Imagine This?
I remember as a kid seeing a book that referred to Red Eva/Aoife, a medieval warrior noblewoman in Ireland, famed for her bloodthirsty antics. She and her husband were well matched, and the locals lived in fear of them.
She wore spiked armour, and liked to grab enemies in battle and impale them.
I haven't had much luck googling, but she'd be make a good strip, I reckon. Does this ring any bells?
Later: Just remembered. She was married to Strongbow the Norman. Wish I could find that book. I don't remember the author or title, or anything, but it was full of cool watercolours of stormswept castles and romantically weird caharacters of Olde Ireland. I guess my sister chucked it with so many intriguing things when she cleared 'Heart Attack House' (as we called it), after my mother's death.

Stray doodle; can't remember if I've posted it before...

On the currently showing NZ version of The Bachelor, one of the contestants let rip with a fart on her first date with the designated dreamboat. This made headlines in the New York Post. And they say people aren't interested in news any more.

Oh, didn't notice that story here. The Post, though, is the sort of paper that would put a bimbo's fart on the front page.

I was wrong about it being just the Post - it "made headlines worldwide" according to the NZ Herald, including in the Mirror and the Mail. Then we made more headlines for firing some X Factor judges. Go us.
